N.V. Thorn Clarke Brut Reserve - 88 PTS - IWC

tanzer iwc 88 pts"Pink-tinged silver. Fresh, yeasty aromas of tangerine, pear and peach. Lush and loaded with fresh orchard fruit and soft citrus flavors, with fresh, juicy acidity providing lift and vivacity. Crisp, mineral-driven wine with good breadth and concentration, not to mention real personality. This smokes a number of non-vintage Champagnes, and it's less than half the price of most of them."

N.V. Thorn Clarke Brut Reserve - 89 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate 89 Pts."Readers looking for an inexpensive sparkling wine should try the non-vintage Brut Reserve, made from equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that was aged on its lees for six months. A Champagne look-alike, it is surprisingly light on its feet, elegant, and fresh with good effervescence, and plenty of character. Drink it over the next year."

N.V. Thorn Clarke Brut Reserve - 90 PTS - BD

Beverage Dynamics"Yeasty bread dough aromas are soft and supple and there is a lightly sweet hint of creme brulee; a nice balance of its varietals (56% Pinot Noir, 44% Chardonnay), with a full mouthfeel and good structure, along with complex fruit flavors that slowly unfold across the palate; excellent weight on the finish and a clean aftertaste."
