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.

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.

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 & "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
This Champagne offers rich yellow fruit and crisp white stone fruits balanced with a full texture. Hints of the wood used in fermentation add to the ripe feel. Still a little young, it will be much better from 2019." - Roger Voss (12/1/2016)

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Well-spiced and creamy, with a mouthwatering mix of baked pineapple, apple blossom, black cherry and mandarin orange peel. Fine and balanced, offering hints of candied ginger, graphite and coconut on the fresh finish. Drink now through 2028. 916 cases made." – AN (Nov 30, 2016)

90 Points - James Suckling:
"A bold oak thread with plenty of pithy lemon citrus fruits and vanillin, too. The palate has an almost chewy edge, and very pithy lemon fruit flavors. Oak tannins square up the finish. Drink now." - (October 4, 2017)
