The world of Alexandre Lenique
« A cool, dry autumn, a mild winter and a wet springtime. Uncertainty at the time of bloom. Then the providential return of the sun at harvest-time… It all contributed to an exceptional vintage. ».

« Against citrus and orchard fruit notes (pear and apple) with hints of almond, this vintage offers a refined bouquet. Ageing in the cellar has certainly paid off: the champagne has a very refined, mineral taste. It is fresh and forthright, expressing the chalky terroir with an almost astringent final sensation, the sign of a well-rooted expression » - Gault et Millau
The simplicity of the moment
Surely a great 2008. Perfect with a tuna carpaccio or a fresh-and-smoked salmon tartare.
