1999 Daniel Ginsburg "Cuvee Prestige Louis XVII" Brut Champagne (1.5L)

SKU #1082016

This was made by De Meric, and is the same wine as their Catherine De Medicis. We were able to get a tiny allocation of magnums of this ultra-rare cuvée! This is simply one of our best Champagnes at any price. In the past, we have only been able to get a trickle here and a trickle there, but with ownership in flux and the economy suffering we secured not only a good quantity but also a fantastic price. I have been lucky enough to have this wine on a few occasions and it is second to none. I feel that it is in the very highest bracket of Champagne and should be treated like a $600 magnum (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. The wine has exquisite texture from obviously low yields and almost 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)

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.
