Champagne Gaston Chiquet Tradition Brut Premier Cru NV / 750 ml.

Item#: 18647

SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2011
Fresh and lively, with a leesy hint of bread dough mixing with candied berry, quince paste, lemon zest, wax and fleur de sel. Fine-grained, with a lip-smacking, juicy finish. Disgorged April 2011. Drink now through 2018.
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2017
There’s a crunchiness to the texture and acidic frame of this lively Champagne. Balanced overall, offering flavors of Anjou pear, star anise and lemon curd underscored by minerally chalk and smoke accents. Disgorged May 2016. Drink now through 2020. 1,100 cases imported.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2005
A distinctive and vinous style of Champagne, this tastes like a Chablis with its intense stoniness and gingery fruit. Broad, creamy vanilla and brioche flavors place it with food, whether roast fish or roast chicken.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2021
A bright, snappy Champagne, mineral-driven and crisp in texture, displaying a range of tangy apple and kumquat fruit with hints of smoked almond, biscuit and lemon thyme. Disgorged November 2019. Drink now. (Alison Napjus)
ST9090 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2005
Medium straw color, with an intensely bubbly mousse. Aromas of lemon, lime, and pink grapefruit. Taut and minerally on the palate, with vibrant, concentrated citrus flavors complicated by white pepper and earthier lemongrass notes. This gained flesh and weight with air. Tangy and nervy on the crisp finish, which is fresh and precise.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2006
Rustic and bold with a wild umami richness all its own, this tastes like an oyster roasted in its shell with fresh morels. The flavors are broad and substantial, ready to chill for those oysters.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2008
Chiquet’s Tradition emphasizes pinot meunier (45 percent), blended with chardonnay (35) and pinot noir. This release is mostly from the 2004 vintage, with small amounts of older wines blended in. It has an intriguing scent of toasted sesame seeds and rising bread dough. There’s a fresh almond flavor to the wine, both rich and clean. Delicious with rustic country pâté.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2007
This has the clarity and quiet spice of a beautiful chardonnay, while pinot meunier makes it supple. It’s clean, mildly leesy and built for pan-roasted river fish in a cream sauce.

Where It's From

Region / Champagne

View more wines from Champagne

Bring on the bubbly! Perhaps no other wine region in the world has the name recognition of Champagne, to the point where people often mistakenly use the word "Champagne" to describe any sparkling wine. Yet only wines produced within the region can legally be called "Champagne," and to this day it produces some of the finest sparkling wines known to earth.

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
