Professional Reviews For This Wine


Richard Juhlin | Rating: 96

One of the rare Champagnes in this book that has received ninety-eight points. It is always difficult to describe in words the great Champagnes, so let me instead say that this Champagne is close to perfection, with its deep golden color, outstandingly mature, multifaceted bouquet, and shocking attack. The acidity is wrapped up in an incomprehensibly rich and elegant fruit. A masterpiece!

Wine Varietal: Champagne Blend


Three major varieties are used in a Champagne Blend: Chardonnay, which provides a smooth, creamy texture and Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, which provide depth and backbone. Most Champagne is non-vintage (NV), produced with grapes from several different vintages. Vintage Champagnes are made in exceptional years and must contain 80% grapes from that year. Champagne, France is the only region permitted to put "Champagne" on the label.

Blanc de Blancs: Meaning "white of white," blanc de blancs Champagne is 100% Chardonnay.

Blanc de Noirs: Meaning "white of red," is 100% Pinot Noir or a Pinot Noir/Pinot Meunier blend.

Rose Champagne: A small amount of still red wine is added during the blending process, creating a rose hue.
