Disgorged in 2021, this new and ultra rare bottling from Prévost has debuted with the LC19 release comprised from grapes purchased “from sources that emphasize cultivated soils, low yields and full ripeness.” The base wine is a blend of equal parts Chardonnay from Le Mesnil and Pinot Noir from Puisieulx, at the northern end of the Montagne de Reims. Then, there is 20% reserve wine from 2018. While of course very young, it shows incredible depth and complexity today, and quite Burgundian and to no surprise, vinous in its expression. It flaunts a deep caramelized stone fruited profile with salted hazelnuts, curry leaf, gun smoke and lavender. The full bodied and satiny textured palate is just riveting with energy and it gives way to a mineral and saline driven finish that goes on and on. Wowza. — 6 days ago
Pinot-Meunier grape variety. More concentrated dress than expected. Fine nose, interesting, on vegetal notes, peppery, blackcurrant-griotte. In the mouth the acidity is marked, the fruit is respected. We are on a northern red wine with very fine but salivating tannins. An alternative to Pinot-Black or gamay.
Cépage Pinot-Meunier. Robe plus concentrée que prévu (vieilles vignes?). Nez fin, intéressant, sur des notes végétales, poivrées, cassis-pomme-framboise. En bouche l’acidité est marquée, le fruit est respecté. On est sur un vin rouge septentrional avec des tanins très fins, mais salivant. Une alternative aux Pinot-Noir ou gamay. — 5 days ago
Starting with bubbles today on this hot summer night at just below a 100 F. Very refreshing, prickly acidity edged by slight hints of peach and cantaloupe and hazelnuts … I think. Not a connoisseur on Champagne. But I liked it!! Very balanced and easy to drink. — 4 days ago
Pale salmon in color.
Strong nose of raspberries, strawberries, limes, green apples, minerals, yeast, spices and bread.
Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and small bubbles.
Dry on the palate with citrus, white cherries, strawberries, earth, spices, yeast, apples, pears and light grapefruits.
Long tangy finish with light almonds.
This is a delicious Rosé Champagne from the house of the Rothschild family. Nicely balanced with a great mouthfeel.
Loved the nose here, and the bubbles are nicely integrated and not intrusive at all. Very easy to drink.
Really good right out of the bottle, and better after an hour of airtime.
Elegant and luxurious, with nice complexity.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with Avocado Tuna Tartar.
A blend of 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir. Kosher and not Mevushal.
12% alcohol by volume.
