Brown Brothers Pinot Noir Chardonnay Pinot Meunier

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2002 Vintage) says
This pushes the richness of pinot noir with delicacy and precision - gently smoky, savoury nose, some fresh mushroom, grilled nuts and earthy complexity starting to build. With a super-fine and linear palate, this has a steely resolve and delivers some citrusy flavours through the middle palate, twisting savoury through the back. Fresh, lemony acid bite, gentle spices and plenty of time ahead.

Medium yellow-green; an interesting and quite pungent lemon rind/ lemon spice bouquet, then a long, intense palate with very lemony acidity. Treads perilously close to the edge.

This bottle-fermented non-vintage delivers a complete and classy sparkling wine experience with toasty autolysis, red fruits, earthy fresh mushrooms and fresh bread dough. The palate rides on a fine, zesty line of acidity, building layers of savoury biscuit flavours across lemony citrus, with creamed spices to close. Outstanding value and consistency.

Bright colour; a quite serious sparkling, with good intensity and length, before a lingering, dry finish.

This is just about the most reliable sub-$20 bubble on the market nowadays: the Steady Eddie of the fizzy-wine world. For some reason people don't often think Brown Brothers when they think of sparkling wine, and although I've been flogging my belief that Browns' are among the best bubbles in the country, it seems old habits die hard. Do have a crack at thisÑit's terrific, toasty and top.

Tyson Stelzer says
Dollar for dollar, this is one of the best value bottles of fizz on the shelves. Layers of rich complexity are built around pinot noir (almost three-quarters of the blend), reinforced by reserves and liqueurs aged half in old oak. This creates aromas and flavours of wild honey, succulent peaches, mixed spice and ginger nut biscuits. Its generosity is offset impeccably by cool, clean acidity, thanks to its lofty King Valley origins. The finish lingers long amidst hints of mineral texture and a full dosage of 11.5g/L of sweetness.
