A champagne oozing elegance and finesse, surprisingly fresh for a 2002, although we feel this is a very present characteristic of this year compared to others. A light champagne, with apple and elderflower notes, developing into dark chocolate aromas on the nose and a crisp, minerality on the palate. Great with smoked salmon or bacon, cutting through the saltiness! From Bouzy in the Marne. Winner of 2* Guide Hachette 2014, a remarkable wine.

The latest vintage from the Leblond-Lenoir house, following the 2005, which sold out much earlier than anticipated. A testament to this family's outstanding champagnes. Blending Pinot Noir & Chardonnay, this has a surprising freshness for a vintage, which dissipates into a long, well-balanced finish. Great for aperitifs and richer meat dishes. Also perfect for summer!
