Réserve Privée Brut is a wine with a rich, well structured palate featuring notes of fruit. Pinot Noir dominates the blend at 70%, followed by Chardonnay (20%) and Meunier (10%).

With its delicate bubbles and luminous gold color, it offers a perfect balance between liveliness and roundness on the palate, underscored by delicious fig and raisin flavors. Isabelle Tellier has put together a refined and light seafood menu; she recommends that Réserve Privée Brut be served at between 8°and 10°C.

A regional menu for Réserve Privée Millésime 2014

The Chanoine Frères Réserve Privée 2014 vintage is a champagne of character, delicate and vivacious with a lovely aromatic expression, fully in the holiday spirit. Its blend consists of 48% Chardonnay, 39% Pinot Noir and 13% Pinot Meunier.

The fine, delicate effervescence sets off a brilliant color with golden highlights. The rich, seductive nose delivers aromas of candied fruit and toasted hazelnuts, accompanied by honeyed notes. The palate is perfectly balanced between freshness and fullness, dominated by flavors of candied orange and lemon, with a long, harmonious finish.

This vintage champagne is both expressive and fresh — an ideal partner for your holiday meals, from start to finish. Isabelle Tellier has revisited a regional menu based on a capon and a Tarte Tatin. She recommends a temperature of between 10°C and 12°C for fully appreciating this wine.
