Champagne Lamiable is a grower located in the grand cru village of Tours-sur-Marne. A small team, Ophelie, makes the Champagnes and Arnaud farms their vines sustainably. The 2012 Cuvee Heliades is their Tete de Cuvee, and a show stopper. A blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir from grapes are all from their grand cru sites with vinification done in oak. The Cuvee Heliades is very reminiscent, and about the same blend as Vilmart Coeur de Cuvee. It screams from the glass with its tiny bubbles and notes of fresh apple, citrus, stone fruits, minerals, and a touch of nougat. I dosage is perfect at 5 g/l, and the finish lingers for minutes. A tour de force in Champagne that is approachable now, but will only get better over the next few years. Suggested retail is north of $100 per bottle, and we were able to procure the only bottles available in the USA!
