Tasting Notes

Without a doubt, this is one of the best Champagnes we carry at any price. Made from two plots of 65-year-old vines, one in the grand cru of Oger called "Chenys" and one in Mesnil called "Derriere Maison," this is among the ultimate expressions of Chardonnay that we have to offer. The wine shows the richness of the 2010 harvest perfectly with great ripeness but balanced by the scintillating acidity of the pure belemnita chalk. Add in the richness and complexity from old massal-selected, Grand Cru, mid-slope sites and you have a must-buy for any Champagne lover! Because of the shape of this 750ml bottle, it must ship in a magnum box. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

    There are not many champagnes that I wait in anticipation for, but the Special Clubs do it for me!. The Launois is a favorite and this one did not disappoint. The anticipation was worth it. The nose is enticing and almost heady. The fruit just exploded in your mouth then the acid and mineral stepped in and the finish lasted for extremely long time. I especially enjoyed the lingering aftertaste. This is a gotta have it!!!

    Not every champagne gets to enjoy the label of “vinous,” but this one here deserves it completely! The moment you bring the glass to your nose, you get lost in how deep it goes. On the palette, clean orchard fruits are laced with a little bit of salinity and nuttiness, with a minerality that will leave you breathless, and a finish that goes on for a ridiculously long time. Absolutely incredible! I’ll certainly be putting away a few bottles for myself, as will a few of my colleagues, so you’d better get this quickly!

    Wow! Just Fantastic! Deep, strong old vine fruit on the nose that lead to an explosive entry of mouthwatering Chardonnay fruit on the palate. Champagne like this will spoil you forever! Ralph Sands
