Tasting Notes

The house is located in the southern Champagne region of Aube. This cuvée is comprised of 90% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay. Chalky minerality is apparent in the wine as this southern Champagne region has the same chalky soils as Chablis. Tart lemon, lime, citrus, and pink peppercorn.

Staff Pick Notes

Big things can come in small packages. Take this superb bottle from R. Dumont & Fils.. This is their classic Champagne labeled "tradition" made almost entirely of Pinot Noir with a rich, bready quality to it not unlike vintage Champagne. A lively array of flavors bubble up on the palette - lemon rind, raspberry, custard, sea salt, croissants - it is fireworks in the glass! It's bold personality is fitting for a Champagne from the rogue region to the south, the Côte des Bars. Historically it was considered second class, and supplied grapes to the big Champagne houses in the regions to the north. It's geographically closer to Chablis and has the same "kimmeridgian" chalky clay soils which give the wines a zesty acidity. Definitely a Champagne to enjoy with the main course.

These winemakers control every...

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking...
