2004 Leclerc Briant "Cuvée Divine" Brut Champagne

SKU #1046336

Extremely limited. Leclerc Briant only releases Divine in years that they consider to be great- the 1990's only saw two vintages, '90 and '96. It is composed of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir, blended from estate vineyards in the prime valley of the Marne villages Dizy (home of Jacquesson), Cumieres (where their single vineyard offerings are from), Damery (where Mr. Rene Collard has vines) and Hautvillers (home of the monk Dom Perignon). Those of you who have been lucky enough to taste older vintages of this superb tete de cuvee know how great it can be. (Gary Westby, K&L Wine Merchants)

A blend of 50% chardonnay and 50% pinot noir, this latest effort is a stunner! Excellent cherry fruit,a hint of pineapple with light toast and excellent acidity. Fleshes out in the middle and has a long lingering finish. Elegant, refined and just plain delicious. Ages remarkably well.
Drink from 2011 to 2017

This very exclusive Champagne is soft, with very clean palate. Quite crispy and elegant. Delightful.

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.
