Quartz Reef N.V. Methode Traditionnelle

"Biodynamic farming, lees maturation, attention to detail, great vineyard sites. Rudi Bauer of Quartz Reef has many positives in the manifestation of his life work. Beyond that, and so often it’s hard to separate the person who makes the wine from the wine itself, he’s an outstanding human. And hilarious. This wine leapt from the pack. Incredible intensity, inward concentration, a knife edge of acidity in finely wrapped layers of toastiness, marzipan, brioche with a sleek, lean profile of green apple and citrus. Fine, fine bubbles add dimension and freshness. Aside its precision, it’s gorgeous to drink, refreshing the palate with each sip, leaving lingering detail of the presence of the wine. Insanely good drinking. It’s fine wine personified. Kudos here." -Mike Bennie, Wine Front

"Bright and attractive florals and hints of strawberries, leading to a palate that delivers pink grapefruit and light nectarines. Fresh, fruit-driven style here. A blend of pinot noir and chardonnay." James Suckling

"A beautifully styled and composed methode, the inviting bouquet shows white stone fruit, lemon peel and apple blossom characters with subtle yeasty complexity. The palate is finely textured and brightly flavoured with pristine fruit flavours together with zesty acidity, wonderfully framed by creamy mouthfeel." Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
