Wine Advocate-Parker : White golden in color, the 2009 Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru Brut Nature Terre de Vertus offers a very pure and delicate but also intense bouquet of stewed apples with lemon flavors, a touch of vanilla creme and a lovely iodine character as well. Filigreed, highly elegant and silky on the palate, this is a fruit intense but also a firmly structured and persistent vintage Champagne of great finesse. Lovely walnut and yeasty flavors in the aftertaste. Great harmony. Delicious.
