Save-the-date NOW for our AR Lenoble “Portes Ouvertes” 2018!

December 7, 2017, Christian Holthausen

The last day of 2017 has not even arrived yet but we’re already thinking about our 2018 “Portes Ouvertes” at Champagne AR Lenoble in Damery. We look forward to welcoming our friends from all over the world on Sunday 15th April 2018 and Wednesday 18th April 2018.

This will be your chance to taste the 2017 vins clairs from our own 18 hectares of vineyards in Chouilly, Bisseuil and Damery as well as special treasures from our cellars, including AR Lenoble Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Vintage 1988!

This will also be your chance to discover the brand-new AR Lenoble Kitchen. Although Maison AR Lenoble was founded in 1920, our buildings in Damery date back to 1772, that is to say seventeen years before the French Revolution. Major renovations that started in April were completed in November 2017.

The renovation of our house centered around the creation of a professional tasting room, a living room and a dining room, but also, and above all, around a kitchen which is now our centre of life and a place for sharing.

The kitchen has been equipped by Gaggenau and features a central cooking station to allow us to prepare simple dishes in front of our guests. Our rôtisserie allows us to cook our favourite meals like roasted farm-raised chicken. Our idea is to show that the wines of Champagne are even better when enjoyed in a warm setting accompanied by simple dishes and good friends.
