Berrys' United Kingdom Cuvée, Grand Cru, Mailly

Berrys' United Kingdom Cuvee, Grand Cru, Mailly
Sourced from the prestigious Grand Cru village of Mailly, located at the heart of the Montagne de Reims, and benefiting from over three years ageing, our UKC Cuvée is a classic blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay.

All the hallmarks of Grand Cru are here, with brioche and flowers on the nose and an elegant palate which marries notes of lemon grass, gingerbread and honeysuckle. The wine effortlessly combines structure and finesse and reverberates with a really authoritative Grand Cru crescendo on the finish.
(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)

Berrys' United Kingdom Cuvee, Grand Cru, Mailly
Made from 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, this stunning Grand Cru Champagne contains reserve wine that has been aged in barrels from Ch. Margaux. Aged for four years this is powerful and elegant, rich yet poised and displays aromas of gingerbread, lemongrass and honeysuckle. Grand Cru quality fruit is particularly evident on the long and authoritative finish and this is a superb example of the traditional UKC style.

Berrys' United Kingdom Cuvee, Grand Cru, Mailly
You know in some ways this is my 'pick of the bunch'. It's a Champagne that has always been a value for money favourite, but this bottle was just enchanting, made entirely with grapes from the Grand Cru vineyards of Mailly, and with plenty of reserve wines adding depth to the blend, especially those aged in ex-Château Margaux barrels.

Miniscule bubbles stream through the rich golden wine, and the nose combines fresh-baked biscuit warmth with saltiness and fat, generous lemony fruit. On the palate the cushion of mousse is sweet and soft, the fruit depth and complexity surprising with nectarine and tangerine fruity brilliance, and that long, long and refined mineral finish. A seriously good little Champagne this and looks very classy too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good "all day" champagne I thought of the Duke of Omnium in Trollope's Palliser novels, because this is a champagne he could happily have drunk at or after breakfast, at noontime or in late afternoon or evening. 08 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I'm not a champagne drinker but... I'm not generally a big fan of champagne but this is very gentle and clean tasting. It left me feeling refreshed rather than groggy. A very drinkable and pleasant experience and I'd certainly buy it again. A very reasonable price too. 21 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another BVfM This champagne besides being very, very nice is also the Best Value for Money, like your GOC (Good Ordinary Claret)! 20 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A magnificent champagne! This champagne is superb; and in a magnum, even better. Of all the sparkling wines we tasted at a BBR champagne tasting, this - in a magnum - was the best! 12 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I served a jeroboam and two magnums of this on New Years eve and my guests were ore than normally apprciative. Does a large bottle improve it? Delicious. More rounded than usual with no hint of acidity. 07 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Apparently welcome gifts These purchases were gifts to relatives for Xmas. They appear to have been welcome! At any rate they have all thanked us. 07 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great - Just the ticket! A well priced magnum, superb for a bit of a celebration! Champagen is very nice too, very drinkable - not in the class of a vintage champagne, but good everyday champers. 07 January 2014
