"The Brut offers a crisp, and full-bodied sparkling wine, which has developed rich complexity and fine mousse. The allure of toasty finish from twenty-four months on tirage, is a complement to the sophisticated apple and citrus flavor."
"92 Points- Wine Enthusiast. This wine shows amazing complexity, subtle richness, layers of flavor and an ultra smooth texture. A foundation of fruit flavor is very solid, and the acidity is firm and refreshing. The mouthfeel is plush and the finish lingers, making it a grand wine for a special occasion."
"Generous fruit flavors define this rich, dry and sophisticated bubbly. It has vivid cherry and white peach flavors, a smooth effervescence, crisp acidity and a lingering finish."
"92 points Wine Enthusiast - A majority of Pinot Noir in this blend doesn't overshadow the Chardonnay's sentiments of baked apple, hazelnut and creme brulee. Warm and savory, the mousse is also dry, crisp and buoyant, balanced and elegant in the end, making for a complete wine with a lengthy finish."
"92 Pts Wine Spectator. A voluptuous and expressive sparkler, with floral red apple, brioche and cinnamon spice aromas and rich, vibrant flavors that finish on a luxurious note."
"96 Points- Wine Enthusiast. This, their top vintage wine, is very great, and the price is an absolute steal for this world class sparkler. It's enormously rich in the strawberries from Pinot Noir and the limes from Chardonnay, while the toast and rich lees combine for a perfect champagne-style smokiness. And so smooth, it's like a kiss of silk."
"91 Points- Wine Spectator. A bold bubbly, with classic aromas of apple, ginger and rubber, leading to structured, rich flavors of raspberry, yeast roll, mineral and blanched almond. Drink now through 2017."
"A blend of 68% Chardonnay and 12% Pinot Noir from sundry Northern California sites, this is a dry, citrusy and easy-drinking sparkling wine, ideal for special get togethers or as an opener to the night. Fresh pear and citrus intermingle throughout bright acidity and a lingering finish."
"The art of blending is the key to the high quality and value of Korbel Brut. We blend multiple varieties from multiple appellations and even multiple years. Each grape variety and appellation that we use contributes a unique character to the final blend. As the last step, Korbel Brut California champagne receives a medium-dry level of dosage - just enough to balance the classic crisp acidity."
"90 Points- Wine Enthusiast. This could be considered a liquid dessert, with a rich gold color, abundant aromas of baked apple and pear tart, and tasty vanilla and marzipan flavors.It's not overly sweet, just very lush in texture, concentrated in flavor and long on the finish. Best Buy."
