The Paradis Brut 2006 from Alfred Gratien is an exceptional wine composed of Grand Crus Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This champagne is the expression of the savoir-faire of the Cellar Master of Alfred Gratien. In the glass, the wine presents a brilliant golden robe with sparkling and persistent bubbles. On the nose, the bouquet produces a lovely blend of honey, hazelnut and white fruit. On the palate, the Cuvée Paradis Brut 2006 has an ample body and long lasting finish of the complex flavors of white fruit and gingerbread. The Cuvée Paradis Brut is a singular rich and fine champagne.
