Champagne Veuve Doussot Grande Cuvee Brut has a high proportion (80%) of Pinot Noir that gives it lovely richness, with intense notes of brioche, lemon and baked apple appearing in both its aromas and palate. At the same time, the wine has fantastic zip and minerality, with all of the mouthwatering acidity and palate-cleansing freshness one wants in Champagne.

Unlike many a big brand Champagne that is blended to express a consistent house style, grower Champagnes such as this from Veuve Doussot reflect the terroir in which they were grown. A step up from the Joly's entry evel offering, the Veuve Doussot Grande Cuvée Brut is chiefly Pinot Noir, with 20% Chardonnay providing freshness.

From Wine Spectator Magazine:
A rich Champagne, showing finesse, with layered flavours of ripe white currant, apple Tarte Tatin, honey and toasted almond, featuring a satiny texture and mouthwatering acidity. A subtle streak of minerality underscores this wine, gaining momentum on the finish. 92 Points

From Allen Meadows' Burghound:
This, too, is impressive and worth checking out. 92 Points

From Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages:
Some age on this to judge from the nose, and impressive breadth on the palate. Just sufficiently sprightly to be refreshing but all in all a very satisfying non-vintage Champagne provided you like a bit of flesh. 16/20

From Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
Bright straw. Delicate aromas of orange, pear and ginger, with a stony top note. Taut and vibrant on the palate, showing good precision and incisive orchard fruit and mineral flavours. The sappy, tactile finish offers strong mineral lift and a suggestion of floral honey. 90 Points
