A cuvée of 25% Chardonnay from Chouilly, 30% Pinot Noir from Bissueil and 45% Pinot Meunier from the Marne Valley. Of these, a total of 35% are reserve wines from 2014, aged in magnum bottles. A.R. Lenoble has – as the name “Zéro” suggests – completely dispensed with dosage for this champagne, which the first mouthfeel would not reveal. Dosage Zéro has been on the lees for at least 3 years. A balanced, rich and precise champagne with fine mineral notes, aromas of citrus and light hints of brioche. It is worth highlighting the beautiful balance between fullness and freshness.
- In the glass: an intense golden yellow with light silver reflections and a delicate, persistent perlage.
In the nose: expressive of red fruits
On the palate, full-bodied and fresh with notes of white fruits and white flowers
- Solo or as a food accompaniment
This champagne is excellent with oysters, shellfish or tuna
The Champagne House A.R. Lenoble
Champagne A.R. Lenoble was founded in 1920 by Armand-Raphaël Graser. It is one of the few champagne houses that has been family owned for over 100 years. The current owners Anne and Antoine Malassagne are the great-grandchildren of the founder and thus the fourth generation of the family to run the winery. The 18 hectares of vines of the estate are distributed as follows: 10 hectares in Chouilly where Anne and Antoine grow Chardonnay in Grand Cru sites – definitely the jewel of the Champagne house, 6 hectares in in Bisseuil (Pinot Noir, Premier Cru) and 2 hectares in Damery.
