Winemaker’s notes:
An exceptional Champagne which is the product of an elegant and harmonious blend of three vintages. This cuvee is produced from our best riverbank’s vineyards and is often presented like the Cinderella of our range of Champagne and the symbol from the Baron-Fuenté family.

A golden color with a fine complex nose which opens up to smooth dried fruit, straw like, Danish pastry and delicately floral aromas. This full and vinous wine is a delightfully lively and leaves a long finish of pleasant fruit flavors.

L’Esprit Brut makes an elegant aperitif. The style also allies well to food especially with roasted chicken. This precious wine also goes superbly with caviar or sushi.

Critical Acclaim:
“Creamy in texture, with mouthwatering acidity enlivening rich notes of bread dough, black currant, lemon curd, pastry cream and blanched almonds. Shows fine balance and length. Drink now through 2020.”  92 Pts – Wine Spectator

“As with other Champagnes in the producer’s range, this blends three vintages, giving it extra richness and depth of fruit flavor. Its toasty edge suggests it has also been aged in bottle. Attractive and ripe, it’s ready to drink. ”  91 Pts – Wine Enthusiast
