Armand-Raphael called the house Lenoble because “Champagne is the noblest of all wines, Champagne Lenoble, the noble Champagne.” AR Lenoble celebrated their centenary in 2020 and this House has earned the respect of many in the wine world under the continued stewardship of sister-and-brother team Anne and Antoine Malassagne, the great-grandchildren of founder Armand-Raphaël Graser. Focussing on sustainability, the vineyards of AR Lenoble have been certified HVE (Haute Valeur Environnementale), one of the first Champagne Houses to be do. Beehives were introduced into the vineyards of the domaine nearly a decade ago, a testament to their commitment to biodiversity. AR Lenoble owns 18 hectares in three prime locations in Champagne. Chouilly, Bisseuil and Damery. 100% of the Chardonnay used to craft their wines comes from the Grand Cru village of Chouilly while 100% of the Pinot Noir comes from the Premier Cru village of Bisseuil. Pinot Meunier comes from the village of Damery.
This is an elegant Champagne with a dominance of Grand Cru Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs providing soft nutty flavour with fine bubbles and a fruity nose. Fresh acidity complements the brioche and baked apple pie notes which can be tasted long into the finish.
The perfect aperitif and accompaniment to white meats, grilled fish or a moderately sweet dessert.
