SKU #1044838

40% off! Perfect stocking stuffers for the holidays! 94 points Wine Spectator: "Hints of burnt sugar and toffee accent this bright Champagne, along with notes of apple pie, bread dough, cream and candied lemon peel. There's a fine balance between the wine's finesse and its lively character, with a long, smoke-tinged finish. Better than previously reviewed. Drink now through 2024." (11/10) 91 points Stephen Tazner's IWC: "Light gold. Fresh citrus and pear aromas are complemented by notes of brioche, honey and minerals. Fruit-driven, silky and refreshing, with an undertone of minerals adding lift to the sappy pear and nectarine flavors. Finishes on a brisk note of lemon curd, with very good, gently toasty persistence. I like this wine's balance and sneaky depth." (Nov/Dec 10) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Are delicate and full-bodied contradictions? Not here, with this ripe, red-fruit-flavored wine, which still creeps delicately around the palate. From its just pink color to its soft, yet still crisp aftertaste, this is a well-balanced wine, which could probably age well for 2-3 years." (12/30/2007) A half bottle of this luxury Champagne may be just what the doctor ordered in light of the global financial crisis and all the other bad news of late. It is a blend of the best pinot noir and the best chardonnay grapes to which this historic Champagne house has access. Drink now with someone you love or, better yet, someone you lust after!

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- 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.
