Winery Notes:


Blend: Well balanced and fruity, it is a very classical wine. Thanks to the large proportion of reserve wines going into the blend and long cellar ageing, the dosage is kept to the minimum.


Visual Aspect: A deep, brilliant golden colour, clear and radiant. The foam is dense, light and harmonious, with many columns of fine bubbles ascending quickly in the glass.


Nose: The first sensation on the nose is mild and rounded, leading into hints of white fruit (apple and pear). A plethora of aromas strike a harmonious balance between white/yellow/red fruit (apple, pear, plum and redcurrant), citrus (lemon and grapefruit), blossom (honeysuckle and acacia), dried fruit, infusions (lime), pastry (brioche and kugelhopf) and minerals (chalk).


Palate: The attack is as mild, smooth and fresh as you could wish, providing the perfect reflection of the bouquet. The stewed fruit flavours are intense and the reserve wines offer a lovely full impression. Long lasting flavours finishing on a fruity, mineral note with a hint of citrus.


 


Burghound Notes:


Burghound Producer note: This house was founded by Armand-Raphael Graser in 1915 and he began producing Champagne in 1920 under the brand name of A.R. Lenoble. The fourth generation is now at" the helm ? great-granddaughter and great-grandson Anne and Antoine Malassagne. Their vineyards cover 18 ha and their chalk cellars were dug out in the 18th century and offer ideal conditions for aging wines with a constant year-round temperature and humidity

 

Tasting note: A pure and solidly complex nose of brioche, pear and citrus peel introduces delicious and full-bodied flavors that possess a good volume of moderately fine effervescence before culminating in a mildly austere medium-dry finish. This is notably better than the last bottling of this though unfortunately there is no easy way to tell the difference. While this could certainly be enjoyed now I would advise holding for a few years first." April 2013
