“Subtle and smoky, this well-balanced version offers a soft and creamy mousse that carries hints of poached pear, candied orange zest and ground ginger” – Wine Spectator
This zero dosage Champagne has a linear mineral palate with notes of stone fruits – a delicate wine that is ideal with scallops and other shellfish.
AR Lenoble has mastered the art of Dosage Zero. Which means they haven’t added any sugars or flavours after bottling and racking, they got it right the first time. It’s well-structured and very ripe with a creamy mousse-y mouthfeel to soften the finish.
AR Lenoble Champagne AR Lenoble is one of the rare producers in Champagne that has been consistently family-owned and entirely independent since the very beginning. Sister-and-brother owners Anne and Antoine Malassagne are the great-grandchildren of Armand-Raphaël Graser.
In just over twenty years, they have quietly yet confidently transformed AR Lenoble into one of the jewels of the Champagne region. AR Lenoble was the second House in Champagne to be awarded the “Haute Valeur Environnementale” certification to encourage sustainable development.
AR Lenoble believes very strongly in privileging the characteristic expression of fruit from its own vineyards located in three prime locations in Champagne:CHOUILLY, the northernmost Grand Cru village located on the celebrated Côte des Blancs and home of some of the most magnificent Chardonnay in all of Champagne. BISSEUIL, the Premier Cru village located between Mareuil-sur-Ay and Tours-sur-Marne and home of rich and structured Pinot Noir. DAMERY, the site of AR Lenoble since 1920, located to the immediate east of Cumières. The village is home to some elegant and expressive Pinot Meunier due to soils that are a combination of clay and limestone.
