Wine SpectatorFresh 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.

Wine AdvocateChiquet's NV Brut Premier Cru Tradition is quite attractive and immediate. Dried pears, flowers, spices and mint all jump from the glass. The Tradition is an accessible, tasty Champagne to drink now and over the next few years. The Tradition is 45% Pinot Meunier, 35% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir, based on the 2008 vintage, with reserve wines from 2005-2007. Disgorgement date: June 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.

Wine EnthusiastGaston Chiquet's nonvintage offering features a toastiness that testifies to its bottle aging. Along with that feeling of richness, it also contains balanced acidity. Full, crisp and lively, the fresh and fruity aftertaste is delicious.
