This is a rare example of a Champagne that can appeal to any person and style of Champagne drinker. This bottling is made from all estate fruit, with a slightly higher percentage of Chardonnay (60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir) and spends four years sur lees. All of these elements together, from the higher acidity of the Chardonnay, to the richness and heavier mouthfeel of the lees aging add up to create an extremely well-balanced Champagne. Charles Ellner is a great producer that should be on everyone's radar, whether new to Champagne, or an old pro.
