K&L Notes

This Champagne is aged on its lees for five years. This extended time on the yeast cells infuses the wine with a robust, creamy texture. The blend is mainly Pinot Noir (85%) with 15% Chardonnay. Golden-yellow with a lively, lovely bead and a fine, persistent stream of bubbles, this complex and refined bubbly has a fruity nose with notes of peach preserve, fresh raspberry, bergamot, honey, and licorice. The Pinot-driven palate is round and rich and is complemented by a touch of yellow fruit and hint of citrus from the Chardonnay. This is a great choice for an aperitif, but will also show well with heartier foods.

One of the hits for me at our Champagne event was Fluteau! I love the cheesy and toasty notes that come from this champagne. Coming from the wine being left to age on the lees for three years. Notes of citrus and spice in a golden yellow hue. This will make a perfect Holiday wine! At this price you can give it out to all the family. This is a Champagne will are talking about here folks.

The complexity and depth of this wine made a great impression on myself and my family the night we opened this. Lots of fruit from the Pinot, a touch of toast and spice from the extended lees time, this bottle of bubbly is intruiging and delicious.

Additional Information:



- 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.


- 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.
