1975 René Collard "Cuvee Reservee Millesime" Brut Champagne

SKU #1003148

This is a blend of 90% meunier and 10% chardonnay. One of the five best Champagnes I have ever tasted. It has the freshness of a 1996 Blanc de Blancs and a level of complexity that few wines ever achieve. It has sweet fruit, potent minerality and a finish that will not quit. Young at over thirty years, I don't think that I will live to see it fade. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne and Sherry 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.
