I've long adored Brut Premier, a masterful presentation of impeccably ripe fruit of intricate balance and abundant appeal: a dependable bargain in the non-vintage champagne stakes. It's on the rise in this new, dedicated facility. Until the 2009 base, Brut Premier reserves came from a solera, in Lacaillon's view, lacking focus and 'showing too much character of having been made in the cellar'. The solera is now no more, bringing greater focus, more precise mineral articulation and greater emphasis on ripe fruit. dosage was sensibly dropped from 10-11g/l to 9.5g/l. The result in 2010 is a wonderful accord between pretty lemon blossom, apple and pear fruit, the spicy, tasty, nutmeg allure of barrel fermentation and bottle age, and the racy freshness of malic acidity. It's at once impeccably fresh and enticingly complex, with a long finish of soft chalk minerality. The 2009 is even more precise in its floral lift, red cherry definition and mineral detail.
