Laurent Bénard La Clé des Sept Arpents Extra Brut Premier Cru 2014 France - 750 ml
This 66% Pinot Meunier, 17% Pinot Noir, 17% Chardonnay blend is hand-harvested and carefully fermented in a blend of stainless steel and oak barrels, producing a deep, rich expression. Brioche, lemon custard, Asian pear, toasted cashew, white flowers, and chalky limestone abound. This Champagne is Extra-Brut, finishing bone-dry, clean, and fresh.
Make no mistake: this wine is as distinguished, classic, delicious, and long-lived as any of the bigger players out there. Drink now or happily cellar for another 5-10 years for glorious results.
