A champagne with roots, created by Isabelle Tellier

Réserve Privée Brut is a finely delineated cuvée created by Chef de Cave Isabelle Tellier, who has been blending the champagnes of the House of Chanoine Frères 1730 since 2002.

In this video (1’09” - English subtitles), Isabelle presents “her” Réserve Privée, “a family of champagnes rooted in the terroir and full of character.”

Of the Brut, she explains: “— Réserve Privée Brut has body because it is given structure by Pinots Noirs from the Côte des Bar — in particular the village of Les Riceys, in the south, in the sunniest part of the appellation zone. These grapes give temperament, a rich palate and fruit notes.”

Chanoine Frères Réserve Privée Brut should be enjoyed ideally at between 8° and 10°C.


But Chanoine Frères Réserve Privée Brut is also available to those of you who prefer to keep your feet on the ground at better wine dealers and on the Chanoine Frères 1730 online store. In the UK it can be found in the Majestic Wine network of stores.
