Aaron:  I was overwhelmed with fruit on the smell of this brut (which was surprising).  Berries and apricots frolicked away to reveal a dry flavor which dissipated quickly.  The fruity and slightly sweet taste was pleasant but could last longer.  A unique note (for a champagne) this seemed to warm the throat and stomach like a higher-alcohol content beverage.  91 points

Teri: I was impressed with the complexity and slightly sweet flavors of Korbel’s Brut Champagne. Korbel makes a great bottle containing rich caramel and red apple florals. I loved the flavors of pear, red apple, and apricot within the champagne. It was crisp with a enjoyable finish. I could drink this all evening. 91 points
