Tasting Notes

René Collard was born in 1921 in the heart of the Marne Valley. At 22, his father (who was a grower) saw his dedication to the family vineyards and gave him a little less than a hectare of vines in the village of Reuil. Since that time he has been making a tiny amount of the most unique Champagne in the world. He has slowly added to his estate- buying up choice vineyards in the villages of Reuil and Damery. His estate is just less than 7 hectares (17.5 acres) planted to about 90% meunier and 10% chardonnay. He has the good fortune of having an amazing cellar that is 25 feet deep at its shallowest and 75 feet deep at the far end... Here the wines that are now on offer have rested, at a perfect 8.5 degrees Celsius since the day they were made. This superb 1985 is a blend of 90% meunier and 10% chardonnay all from Monsieur Rene Collard's vineyards in the Valley of the Marne. White truffles, brioche and pine-nuts! This is such a complex, elegant and completely fresh wine that it is hard to believe it is so young, and hard to believe it is so old! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne and Sherry Buyer)
