Jamie Goode's wine blog

Jamie Goode

Jamie Goode described Champagne Castelnau's Brut Réserve NV as an "impressive Champagne for the price." He also noted the extended period of time it spends on lees for an NV champagne. 

 Champagne Castelnau's Brut Réserve NV 


"This is unusual for a wine at this price in that it has been aged for six years on its lees. It's fine and toasty with nice freshness. Citrussy and taut with some bready notes, and faint hints of cheese and fine herbs, as well as a hint of apricot and some almond nuttiness. Lovely intensity here: it's rich but not too rich."
