Champagne Brut NV - Pascal Lejeune

This Brut is the perfect example of what a talented Champagne-grower can achieve and it doubtlessly competes with any Brut Champagne on the market! This is a blend of Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay from different vintages (like most Non-Vintage Champagnes) that has spent 3 years bottled in the cellar before being released - vs 18 months for most of its peers. As a result, this is a deliciously creamy and fresh Champagne with fine bubbles; developing lovely aromas of pastry (shortbread, almond paste) and fruit (peach, apricot, apple) on the palate...

By far one of our favourites Brut Champagne!

What experts say  
Decanter

88/100 "Yeasty nose and very harmonious palate with notes of pastry and lime and an underlying smokey character. Pin-point acidity."

  

Bronze Medal at Decanter World Wines Awards 2017

Hachette

1* "Pinot Meunier (80%) and Chardonnay (20%) gave a champagne with a well-opened nose of mirabelle, peach, apple and blond tobacco. The palate impresses with its roundness and delicious creaminess combined with a nice final freshness. A harmonious Brut that will be perfect from aperitif to dessert."

More and more popular, a Champagne Rosé always brings a touch of elegance to your glass. Pale pink colour, light and aromatic, it develops lovely notes of small red fruits on the palate. The fine bubbles and the long finish makes it a delicious Champagne to pair with a red fruit tart or just on its own for a few drinks!

The Cuvée de Réserve comes from plots classified as 1er Cru and has more Chardonnay than the Brut, which brings some acidity and freshness. Aromas of pastry and brioche are combined with notes of ripe white fruits and citrus. On the palate, fine bubbles, followed by a nice dry and creamy finish. Interesting to see the level of complexity of a Brut...

Finish is super-long, nicely creamy with a hint of citrus and a very well...

The jewel in the crown! This 2000 vintage Champagne has something really special: partially vinified in oak then aged for over 15 years in the bottle (!), it's an exceptional bottle for any amateur if vintage Champagne. It starts on a fresh and aromatic nose, followed by notes of honey, toast and a salty minerality. The palate shows a high level of...
