Tasting Notes

The Liébart-Régnier family works 10 hectares of vines on both sides of the Marne Valley. The vines are planted on chalk- and clay-based soils. This is based on Pinot Meunier with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay finishing the blend. You'll find aromas of strawberries, red cherries, and a vibrant finish. The family also proudly farms some of the ancient varieties of the region.

Staff Pick Notes

I was lucky enough to become familiar with the Liébart-Régnier House while pouring this charming rosé at a wine event upstairs at Astor Center. This is an unusual blend dominated by Meunier, a grape typically contained to backup status behind Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. However, this beauty is no wallflower. It's an impressive wine that dances across your senses with pretty aromatics of rose and lemon custard, and a lithe, graceful palate revealing raspberries and a deceptively delicate texture. It finishes dry and crisp. As with a dancer, a strong foundation lies under the aesthetics of this wine. A core structure of acidity and balanced flavors means this will work as well as an apertif as with a roasted pork dish.

Remember that “Non-Vintage” (NV) is not a dirty word here: NV Champagnes are blends of wines from the best growing seasons. But if you can find one, try a Champagne made by a Grower-Producer. 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...
