Product Overview

The non-vintage Domaine Jean Vesselle Brut Réserve is a "grower" Champagne, meaning the producers (Delphine and David Vesselle) grow their own grapes and makes their own wine all on site. The family owns one of Champagne's smallest walled vineyards, the "Petit Clos." Located just outside the Vesselle home in Bouzy, "Petit Clos" is the pinnacle of the powerful yet elegant Bouzy style, pure grand cru grapes fermented in barrels made from oak trees from the Champagne region. After 3 years in the bottle, the finished product is a finely balanced, fresh wine, with flavors of blond toast, brioche, red apples, wild strawberries, wild flowers, and white pepper spice. Silky and long, it is an ideal aperitif, or served with soft, creamy cheeses.

Varietal Composition: 80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay
Appellation: Champagne AOC
Aging: 3 years in bottle
Farming Practices: lutte raisonée, organic, no chemical treatments, and the estate uses solar energy and recycles rainwater to reduce its energy footprint
Dosage: less than 11 g/L

89+ Points - Wine Advocate
"Disgorged in February 2018, the latest release of Vesselle's NV Brut Réserve bursts from the glass with a lively bouquet of mandarin oil, fresh peach, minty red berries and spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with ripe acids, a youthfully frothy mousse and a pretty core of fruit that's still a little reserved after its comparatively recent disgorgement, concluding with a precise but compact finish. I suspect this will show quite a bit better after another year on cork." -WK, 4/30/19

89 Points - Vinous
"Vesselle's NV Brut Réserve is powerful and vinous, with plenty of Bouzy Pinot intensity front and center. Dried pear, plum, spice, dried flowers and chamomile add pretty shades of nuance. Time in the glass brings out the wine's natural depth, so a little advance aeration is a good idea. Disgorged October 2018." -AG, Dec/2019
