Champagne AR Lenoble Rosé Terroirs Chouilly-Bisseuil

19/20 — THE TOP SCORE FOR THE CATEGORY — “Some rosés take red wines as their role model, and others offer particular elegance and finesse. This wonderfully complex, floral, mineral wine is one of the latter: airy, transcendent, immensely elegant and precise.”

18/20 — THE TOP SCORE FOR THE CATEGORY — “Superb nose of a young Meursault with hazelnut, vanilla and brioche aromas as well as floral and citrus fruit notes, crystal clear in the attack with an equally crystalline structure, sophisticated and elegant, sinewy and lingering, excellent value for money.”

Champagne AR Lenoble Les Aventures Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Chouilly

18/20 — THE TOP SCORE FOR THE CATEGORY — “Bewitching bottle age with exotic fruit, dried apricot and pastry spice aromas such as vanilla and cinnamon, full in the attack, dense structure, impressively lingering; the complexity and structure of a great white Burgundy, made up of the 2002 and 2006 harvests.”

Champagne AR Lenoble Cuvée Gentilhomme Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Chouilly Vintage 2009

18/20 — “Impressive nose of hazelnut, vanilla (Bernese nut cake), toasted, floral and herb notes with some apricot, creamy in the attack, a dense yet paradoxically also airy structure and a very lingering finish, a wonderful wine at a great price.”

Champagne AR Lenoble Intense « mag 14 »

16/20 — “This wine’s name is well-chosen as it offers up an intense nose of pastry spice, vanilla and fruit aromas, compact and full on the palate with the notes in the finish reminiscent of the nose. Original, more than worth its modest price tag.”

Champagne AR Lenoble Brut Nature Dosage Zéro

16/20 — “Immensely fruity, uncomplicated, direct, uncontrived, with its Rivella note paired with a touch of elderflower and caramel, but absolutely no sweetness. Serve with exotic dishes or bratwurst sausage. We love champagnes like this.”
