Callum Gardener 90/100
The Cuvve Reserve is yet another outstanding value wine from Champagne Launois. The grapes are 100% estate grown and are sourced from the highly acclaimed Grand Cru villages of Mesnil, Cramant & Oger. The nose is super fresh with aromas of pear, lemon curd, hazelnuts and chalk bursting out of the glass. The palate is energetic, clean and precise with an ultra fine mousse. Pear comes through again on the palate, along with white peach and a lemon balm cake flavour, followed by a long saline, mineral finish. There is wonderful balance between freshness, concentration, elegance and finesse. One of my favourite NV Champagne’s.
