Tasting Notes

The late Mr. Rene Collard only made vintage wine in exceptional years. The decade of the eighties only saw two vintages and the nineties the same. In extremely rare instances, Mr. Collard made Roi Rene, his top of the line wine. We were lucky enough to get some of this fantastic, utterly individual wine! This Champagne is composed of 85% meunier and 15% chardonnay from Mr. Rene Collards ancient vineyards in the villages of Reuil and Damery. This has all the richness of the regular '76, but with more lift and elegance. The freshness it offers at 35 years makes it seem like a counterfeit. This is exceptional Champagne for main courses; veal chops with truffled risotto or Portobello mushrooms stuffed with Chanterelles and bacon come to mind. This bottle has more concentration than many of our biggest Bordeaux's, and after more than 30 years it is finally ready to drink. Are you ready for it? (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)
