L’Orpailleur Brut
« This long-time classic is now blended with Vidal which, according to the winemaker, adds fat on the finish. Aging for 18 months on slats gives the bubbles time to refine and the yeasts to develop lovely brioche nuances, which blend with the floral and tropical notes. Flawless, as always. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ »
- Nadia Fournier - Le Guide du vin 2023
« The impression of floating between a Spanish cava and a crémant de France while being… Quebecois. This is what emerges from this beautiful bubble staged by Charles-Henri de Coussergues and his team with this blend of Vidal and Seyval which has nothing to envy to its European colleagues. And original with that! »
- Jean Aubry - Le Devoir
« This cuvee tastes of cooked or ripe white fruit with
a toasty undertone when aerated. The effervescence
is very present: the winemaker obviously allowed
sufficient time for the bubbles to fully develop
and persist. A full-bodied wine reminiscent
of sweet pastry. »
