Tasting Notes

A blend based on Meunier with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to finish. The vines grow on chalk and clay-based soils that were planted generations ago in the 1960s. The style of the Liébart-Régnier Champagnes are welcoming. Dry but not too dry, showing complex brioche and yellow fruit character. The ideal apéritif Champagne that will pair well with hors d'oeuvres.

Staff Pick Notes

This lovely Brut is a true grower Champagne made by three generations of the Liebart-Regnier family. With just ten hectares, the family makes seven wines, my favorite being the Brut NV. It's Pinot Meunier-heavy (a bit of a rarity in the Champagne world), bringing sweet spice and some savory notes to the blend. The Pinot Meunier is joined by usual suspects Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, becoming a well-balanced, dry wine with classic brioche toastiness and soft yellow fruit. A wonderful, approachable, and incredibly affordable Champagne for all occasions.

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...
