NV Charles Le Bel Champagne Inspiration 1818 Brut

$34.99
NV Charles Le Bel Champagne Inspiration 1818 Brut
One of the best Champagnes for the money we have tasted in quite some time. The Charles Le Bel is a powerful vineyard-driven bottle that drinks way above its price point—showing gorgeous aromas of orchard flowers, ripe apples, and liquid minerals wrapped with wonderful acidity. The perfect Champagne for this holiday season and a great cellar saver!

We have a unique Champagne to offer that some may recognize from Charles Le Bel. This Champagne is unique because it is the Second Label to the Champagnes of Billecart-Salmon. Billecart typically vinifies more parcels than they will end up using for the NV Brut Reserve, and that which doesn't make it goes into the Charles Le Bel Inspiration 1818 Bottling. These parcels are typically the younger vines of the property and are chosen by a tasting committee. The entire process is handled at Billecart-Salmon headquarters, including vinification, aging, dosage, and disgorgement. The blend here is Chardonnay 37%, Pinot Meunier 30%, and Pinot Noir 33%, 70% of which comes from reserve wines and is finished with a moderate dosage. The 1818 shows very fine and crystalline bubbles with a light golden yellow color and has an impressive nose of brioche, almonds, butter, apple, and pear. The palate is also beautiful and very mineral, with a good balance between acidity and roundness, citrus fruits, and a lingering finish. It is an excellent buy for Champagne and carries some of the same precision and quality that we expect from a House like Billecart-Salmon and would be a perfect party Champagne for the Holidays.
