Champagne Brut Réserve 1er Cru N.V. Pascal Lejeune


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 Champagne that has spent 5 years in the bottle before being released. It has the character of a great Champagne but without the price tag; and it has just been awarded a Bronze Medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards!

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!

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! * Delivery in 3-5 working days *

Probably the most stunning Blanc de Blancs Champagne we've tasted so far, the type that makes you whish you had more! 100% Chardonnay Champagne – that’s what Blanc de Blancs means! - thin bubbles, elegant, fresh, with a buttery palate of white fruit (apple) and flower (lime-tree). Finish is super-long, nicely creamy with a hint of citrus and a very well...
