    I was finally, on 11 September, able to taste the Gratien line of champagnes. All of them were wonderful but, I have a special spot in my heart for this one. It has a beautiful nose! So darn pretty and delicate with lighter yellow fruits, lemons and cream. Excellent palate with lush, golden fruits, fine acidity and elegance. The two words that most describe this champagne for me are "pretty" and "delicate' for both the nose and character on the palate. Really just sublime.

    I’ve been conditioned, much like Pavlov’s dog, to salivate when I see 2008 on a bottle of Champagne. For lovers of this unbelievable vintage, Alfred Gratien delivers in a big way. It’s bursting with flavors of fresh bergamot, baked apple, rich toast and flowers with a vibrant acidity and stunning finish that is the signature of the vintage. The balance, focus and complexity are stunning.

    The Cuvee Paradis from Alfred Gratien are the top 40 barrels of the strongest vintages. It is almost exclusively Grand Cru fruit with a dabble of Premier Cru Pinot Noir. It showcases the 2008 acidity with amazing vibrancy while showing off the wine maker's personality with the oak spice that really pops on the finish. This is a wine I could easily drink now, but am very excited to see what the future holds for it! Hopefully be a few in my cellar soon!
