A good glass of... #Champagne Paul Lebrun Cuvée Prestige

25 July 2014, by Sebastian Nickel

Oubviously there is a touch of „déjà vu“ when you taste the Cuvée Prestige of Champagne Paul Lebrun.

Champagne Paul Lebrun Cramant

This Champagne has indeed some commonalities with its little brothers and sisters of the estate. Which is quite normal and even desirable, as I am convinced, that each winzer should leave (a slight) fingerprint on the style of his wines. It’s part of the habits of the Vignier-Lebrun family to ripen their Champagne for a long time on fine lees, before they take them out of the cellar. A single exception may be found in their cuvee “Carte d’Or”, which presents a younger, more lively and citric style.

The Dean of the estate, made from grapes of the finest terroirs of the Côte des Blancs, shows a warm golden colour and very fine, regular bubbles. A pleasant-smelling bouquet of ripe peaches and dry apricots, old Armagnac, crème brûlée and blond tobacco. A nose that invites to sit down and take your time…

The wine is dense and creamy on the palate, accompanied by fine, discreet bubbles. A well-structured Champagne one would like to eat and chew to bring it to full expression. I prefer to drink it “solo”, together with piece of old parmesan cheese and some good friends…
