Charles Orban Blanc de Noirs Brut Champagne

SKU #1128652 Jancis Robinson

 Big, bold, interesting nose with a hint of coconut. Slightly loose on the palate. But honest and fresh.  (7/ 2013)

Wine Spectator

 Plum and crushed blackberry notes are layered with hints of wood smoke, almond skin, candied lemon zest and honey in this modest Champagne, with a wooly texture. Drink now. (Web-2014)

K&L Notes

This Champagne is composed of half each Meunier and Pinot Noir from vineyards in and around Troissy in the western Valley of the Marne. The wine is vinified in stainless steel and spends 30 months aging on its lees as well as being blended with 30% reserve wines. The Orban has a straw gold color and a generous nose of fresh baked baguette and classy black cherry fruit. The wine has a very fine mousse and supple texture and a big flavorful impression on the palate. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

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.
