Wine Advocate-Parker :
Golden-yellow in color the 2006 Alfred Gratien Cuvée Paradis Brut is 65% Chardonnay with 35% Pinot Noir; it fermented in oak with malolactic fermentation blocked, was bottled in April 2007 and disgorged in 1/2013 with 9.15 grams per liter dosage. It opens intense, fresh and elegant on the nose displaying ripe and delicate aromas of vanilla, honeydew melon and tropical fruits. Provided with a very fine and elegant mousse, the Paradis is round and charming on the palate, and finishes with a bright lemon-freshness and a good, stimulating grip. This is from lot 14106.
