Notes from the Winemaker:
Cuvée Gentilhomme is made with Chardonnay only from Chouilly, classed as a Grand Cru in Côte des Blancs. It is in the heart of Champagne, in the village of Chouilly, one of the 17 villages to be rated as a Grand Cru out of the 321 in Champagne as a whole, that the greater part of the vineyards of the AR Lenoble Champagne House are to be found. An exceptional terroir whose qualities are sublimated in this Cuvée Gentilhomme. Made with Chardonnay grapes from the best plots of vines and produced only in the great years in very limited quantities. 3 to 4 000 bottles only are sold each year. Its name, Gentilhomme, evokes the values of AR Lenoble, values that it has perpetuated for 4 generations: respect for the past, a sense of duty and the determination to pass on our skills. Anne and Antoine Malassagne watch over the heritage of their ancestors and apply the traditional methods learnt from their forefathers each and every day with passion. The family spirit is safe in their hands.


VISUAL ASPECT
A deep and intense golden colour with very fine bubbles. Delicate foam.

NOSE Very expressive with complex and rich aromas of white fruit. A great wine that should be left to open up in the glass and reveal all its richness.

ON THE PALATE
This wine of contrasts expresses all its complexity through a combination of smooth maturity and fine acidity endowing it with lots of freshness. The attack is buttery, leading into more contrasted, intense aromas of white and yellow fruits. A magnificent wine combining opulence and elegance, freshness and power


Ratings & Reviews
93 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Finely balanced, with rich accents of toasted almond, biscuit, smoke and spun honey meshed with lemon curd, golden currant, white peach and stony mineral notes. Vivid acidity and a lively bead lead to the firm, floral finish. Drink now through 2026." –AN (Jul 31, 2013)
