K&L Notes

This Champagne is made exclusively from Veuve Clicuquot's fabulous library of reserves. Anchored by the 1988 Chardonnay from Cramant, this wine also has Pinot Noir from the Aube in 1996 and Verzy 2006. The youngest wines in the blend come from Aÿ with some 2009, and Ville-Dommange with some Meunier from 2010. In the end, the composition came out to about 50% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, and 20% Meunier. The wine was aged for three years on the lees. The dosage is very low at 3g/l, but the age of the wines makes it show more like a dry brut than an austere extra brut. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

    We had this Champagne with some mushroom pate that Cinnamon made out of hen of the woods and crimi’s from a local grower at the Menlo Park farmers market on toasts made out of the Woodside Bakery’s walnut bread. While the wine was clean, refreshing and bright the whole time, it also magically had vinous depth and complexity that on rarely encounters in current release Champagne. The subtle way that this power and depth presents itself is a testament to the blending mastery of Dominique Demarville, a cellar master at the top of his game. The savory, earthy flavors in the pate brought out the same in the wine, but without the food I might have missed them completely.
