Critical Acclaim

RP91 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Dec 2008

"Smoke, graphite, roasted nuts and flowers flow from the NV Brut Carte Blanche from Jean Milan. The wine shows lovely complexity in the tertiary aromas and flavors that have developed in bottle, with superb clarity and a rewarding, generous personality. The January 2007 disgorgement is 2003 and 2004 Ojer juice, with 10 grams of dosage. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2011." (91 pts.)

WS92 Wine & Spirits December 1, 2010

"A luscious, creamy chardonnay Champagne, this starts off with smoke and almond notes before rounding a corner toward ripe peach and lemon zest flavors. The earthy, pithy fruit character powers on through the finish, ready to take on Dungeness crab." (92 pts.)

WS92 Wine & Spirits December 1, 2008

"The current release of Carte Blanche is a blend of 2005 and 2004, half and half. The two vintages seem to augment each other in a fragrant, fresh chardonnay. It has pretty floral scents from beginning to end, the dosage making the lemon blossom fruit seem more generous and mouthwatering. A hint of fennel in the end suggests a bridge to a crabmeat and endive salad." (92 pts.)

WS91 Wine & Spirits December 1, 2007

"A discreet Champagne, this has delicate lemon-lime and ginger scents over a background of sweet cream. There’s mouthwatering briskness to counteract the sweetness, leaving a sense of complexity and finesse." (91 pts.)

WS89 Wine & Spirits December 1, 2006

"Exuberant fresh apple flavors come up against the youthfully blunt talc of the lees. Together the fruit and lees leave a gingery impression that should develop more depth with another year in bottle." (89 pts.)

Champagne

Bring on the bubbly! Perhaps no other wine region in the world has the name recognition of Champagne, to the point where people often mistakenly use the word "Champagne" to describe any sparkling wine. Yet only wines produced within the region can legally be called "Champagne," and to this day it produces some of the finest sparkling wines known to earth.

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
