This Champagne house is relatively new to me and it is not available locally yet, but I believe she will find her home in here, very soon because it is fairly price, with relatively good quality, especially for the Cuvee Rene which aged 6 to 8 years on the lees that developed into a considerably complex, serious Champagne with great freshness.
Champagne Tribaut Schloesser was founded in 1929 in the heart of the Champagne region, in Romery. For four generations the Tribaut Family has maintained their passion and expertise to produce impressively delicate and refined Champagnes.
Our Vineyards are situated in the best locations between the Montage de Reims and the Marne Valley, very close to Epernay. Champagne Tribaut’s vineyards are made up of 30% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier .
Above notes are getting from the official website:
N.V. Tribaut-Schloesser Brut Tradition (France, Champagne, Montagne de Reims)
30% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier : of which 20% – 40% is from older blends. 36 months bottle age on the lees in cellars. Disgorged 6 months before shipment.
- Very lively both on nose and palate that display plenty of white fruits, citrus and touch of yeasty, toasted bread. Quite sharp on the palate, refreshing, good mid palate intensity with dry, mineral finish. A straight forward Champagne that fit well with summer.
N.V. Tribaut-Schloesser (France, Champagne, Montagne de Reims)
60% Pinot Noir and 40% Pinot Meunier : of which 20% – 40% is reserve wine from older blends. 48 months on lees in cellars. Disgorged 6 months before shipment.
- Very tight nose that almost shut down at this stage, there were some raspberry and strawberry aromas with touch of mineral underneath. This is richer and more powerful compare to the Brut version with red cherry fruits that flow on to the kinda disjointed finish. Too young.
N.V. Tribaut-Schloesser Cuvée Rene (France, Champagne, Montagne de Reims)
70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. The grapes are selected from best parcels. 6 to 8 years on the lees in cellars.
- The nose is lovely and clearly two notches up compare to the Brut and Rose. Refine, beautiful nose of honey, white flower, citrus fruits with dash of toasted bread and oak. Slight sharp entry with smooth, fine moose that gentle explode on the palate that leads to good mid palate intensity and complexity of citrus fruits with a dash of honey and nuttiness which balance by the mouth watering acidity and provide good sense of freshness and grip which flow on to the long, juicy finish with citrus aftertaste. A very good Champagne if not overly complex with good depth, for the price this definitely outperformed. Buy – Yes
