This is a stellar addition to our under-$30 Champagne collection. A classic blend of 1/3 each Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier from estate-grown fruit, Thierry Thibault‘s Brut ticks all the right boxes for Champagne: lees aging, toastiness on the nose and through the creamy palate, fine bead, and a crisp yet long finish. That brioche note is typically a quality reserved for much older (read: more expensive) Champagnes, since it’s due to time spent on the lees. But this is already keenly developed here, giving you that coveted breadiness without having to cellar for decades or spend a lot. The complexity - especially at this price - is impressive.
