RATINGS

93The Wine Advocate

Beautiful, precise wine. Chalky, mineral notes frame a core of expressive, perfumed fruit as this taut, focused rose opens up in the glass. The wine reveals tons of depth in a focused, vibrant style.

93James Suckling

This has a delicate set of aromas of wild cherry and some lighter pastry notes, really fresh. The palate has bright, crisp red fruit flavor and a thread of grapefruit too.

92Burghound.com

A fruity yet wonderfully elegant and exceptionally fresh nose...intense, crisp, precise and very effervescent high energy flavors...at once intensely fruity and gorgeously refined...Terrific and this should only continue to improve.

90Wine Spectator

Very lively, with a fine mousse, this mouthwatering bubbly defines its strawberry, watermelon and lemon notes with zingy acidity.

90Vinous / IWC

...brisk and chiseled to the core, with plenty of bright cranberry, citrus and floral notes that give the wine lift.

REGION

France, Champagne

Champagne is a small, beautiful wine growing region northeast of Paris whose famous name is misused a million times a day. As wine enthusiasts and all French people are well aware, only sparkling wines produced in Champagne from grapes grown in Champagne can be called Champagne. Sparkling wines produced anywhere else, including in other parts of France, must be called something besides Champagne. Champagne producers are justifiably protective of their wines and the prestige associated with true Champagne. Though the region was growing grapes and making wines in ancient times, it began specializing in sparkling wine in the 17th century, when a Benedictine monk named Dom Pierre Pérignon formulated a set guidelines to improve the quality of the local sparkling wines. Despite legends to the contrary, Dom Pérignon did not “invent” sparkling wine, but his rules about aggressive pruning, small yields and multiple pressings of the grapes were widely adopted, and by the 18th and 19th centuries Champagne had become the wine of choice in fashionable courts and palaces throughout Europe. Today there are 75,000 acres of vineyards in Champagne growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Champagne’s official appellation system classifies villages as Grand Cru or Premier Cru, though there are also many excellent Champagnes that simply carry the regional appellation. Along with well-known international Champagne houses there are numerous so-called “producer Champagnes,” meaning wines made by families who, usually for several or more generations, have worked their own vineyards and produced Champagne only from their own grapes.
