The NV Brut Nature Brut Nature L’Atavique Tradition is a powerful Champagne. Verzy Pinot and Chardonnay scream with an intensity that marries fruit, acid and structure. There is not much in the way of subtlety here, but the L’Atavique certainly has a tone of character. I would open this well in advance. Readers should expect a driving, vinous Champagne for the dinner table. -VINOUS Nov 2023
