91 pts Wine Advocate

Packaged in a transparent bottle and an easily recognized yellow-gold label, the NV Franciacorta Cuvée Prestige Brut is a blend of 75% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Bianco and 15% Pinot Nero. This is among Ca' del Bosco's most affordable and accessible sparkling wines. It offers steady consistency year after year. I've always loved the bouquet of this wine. It shows a slightly spicy side that reminds me of Christmas oranges nailed with cloves. In the mouth, the wine is lean and crisp with fine and persistent perlage.

90 pts Wine Spectator

Though rich and creamy, this wine is focused by finely cut acidity, resulting in a lithe version overall. The smoky mineral undertow mixes with flavors of poached apple, toasted brioche, lemon curd and vanilla, followed by a lasting finish.

90 pts Wine Enthusiast

Aromas of ripe Bartlett pear and bread crust follow through to the creamy palate along with vanilla, citrus and a hint of crystallized ginger. A silky perlage provides the backdrop.

Ca' del Bosco's NV Franciacorta Cuvée Prestige Brut offers up an attractive core of honeyed fruit intermingled with floral and spices notes in a finely sculpted, nuanced style. The wine reveals lovely length on the palate and excellent balance at this level. The Cuvée Prestige is the house's new entry-level bottling. It is a shame Ca' del Bosco felt the need to blatantly copy the packaging of Roederer's Cristal for this bottling,This is Lot 07331-01, disgorged Fall 2007.
