Tasting Notes

Full of cream, red apples and citrus fruits on the palate. Mostly Pinot Noir then Chardonnay. This Champagne is made from vineyards that are at least 32 years old. Older, healthy vines are highly prized for good reason - they add complexity.

Staff Pick Notes

Here is a delicious 1er Cru Champagne from the great Marc Hébrart. This is made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with the former lending a lovely richness and notes of pear, apple, and brioche. The latter gives the bottle a lovely red fruit character and balanced acidity. The combo is reminiscent of strawberries and cream, and you should definitely eat some while enjoying this beautiful, top-flight Marne Valley sparkler. Born of old vines, it's a fantastic value for something of this quality, comes in a beautiful, elegant bottle, and just begs to be enjoyed at a festive occasion or throughout your next meal. There's a lot of choices in this price range, but this is my pick.
