2012 A.R. Lenoble Blanc de Blancs Chouilly Grand Cru Millesime

$59.99
2012 A.R. Lenoble Blanc de Blancs Chouilly Grand Cru Millesime
AR Lenoble has been on a hot streak the past few vintages, and our clients, along with ourselves, can't get enough of these masterful creations from this brilliant Champagne duo. AR Lenoble is a brother and sister owned house that was inherited from their father. A small production located in the Marne Valley in Damery making excellent Champagnes from many other villages, but the production size allows them to focus on the quality every step of the way. 2012 here is fantastic, and while Pinot got the spotlight in 2012, the Chardonnay is the underdog, decisively fresh, elegant, and with excellent transparency letting the fabulous chalky minerality of Choulliy shine through. A low dosage of 2g/l, complemented by perfectly ripe fruit that brings extraordinary balance. Every time we taste this Cuvee, we fall in love, sometimes at a loss for words for a Champagne at this level. It is so pure and focused with layer upon layer of green and yellow fruits intertwined with chalky and steely minerality; it is textbook Blanc de Blancs. We always look forward to the release of this flagship, Cuvee, and 2012 is a knockout. AR Lenoble's Champagnes stay true to their terroir and have a great expression, and while this can be approached now, these are sneaky good in the cellar and continue to impress with age. We have great pricing on this new release, and it is not a bottle to miss for the serious Champagne drinkers out there.

Wine Enthusiast (Roger Voss) 94 points! "Grand cru Chardonnay and a low dosage set this Champagne up for a great future. That is to say, with its concentrated minerality contrasting with Meyer lemon fruitiness, the wine is only just hinting at some nuttiness and has far to go. Drink from 2022"
