Champagne AR Lenoble Cuvée Gentilhomme Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs 1996 is made of 100 % Chardonnay from the Grand Cru Chouilly.To celebrate their 20th anniversary together in 2016, Anne and Antoine decided to offer this wine from their first vintage that had not been offered for sale previously: 250 bottles of 1996 Cuvée Gentilhomme Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs.This Champagne comes with a low dosage of 2g/l (Extra Brut). Today, Champagnes with low or zero dosage are in very high demand, but 18 years ago that was not the case.
Characteristic:A pale lemon-gold of impressively youthful hue, and still the energy to generate a steady stream of fine bubbles: the strong pulse of a Champagne full of life. Autumnal bounty, pre-harvest, on the nose: clean, fresh white mushroom, then, with air and a little warmth, subtle scents of baked apple and cinnamon. A fine mousse on a medium body, at once flowing, supple, and vigorous, the ripe acidity contributing to a gently spiraling finish of excellent length. Superb with a soft truffled cheese.
