Daniel Ginsburg "Cuvee Prestige Louis XVII" Brut Champagne (Previously $80)

SKU #1082015

This wine is the De Meric, but is now being sold as Champagne Daniel Ginsburg, after the founder who passed away, and is simply one of our best Champagnes at any price. These are the very last 66 bottles of the 1995/ 1996 batch that we used to sell as the Catherine De Medicis. I feel that it is in the very highest bracket of Champagne and should be treated like a $300 bottle (choose your occasion wisely!) even though it sells for much less. It is made exclusively from fruit grown in the Grand Cru of Ay, and is comprised of 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay. With toasty, developed aromatics that only time can create, this has a bouquet that makes it the equal of the best in the world. The wine has exquisite texture from obviously low yields and more than 10 years aging on the lees. It has a very dense, rich Pinot Noir flavor but a delicate, lengthy Salon-like finish that shows off the quality of the Chardonnay. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
