What to expect


This is the all-new release from AR Lenoble and it is safe to say that they have made an impact! In a recent tasting with Jancis Robinson, AR Lenoble scored the most it has ever received both the Intense and for Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Chouilly. The other top five wines tasted in this article were Louis Roederer Cristal Vintage 2008 (19.5), Dom Pérignon Vintage 2008 (18.5), AR Lenoble Grand Cru Blancs de Blancs Chouilly « mag 14 » NV (18/20), Jacques Lassaigne Brut Nature Vintage 2008 (18/20) and Jacquesson Cuvée 741 Extra Brut NV (18/20). 

Exotic nose, complex with cashew nut and a play between apricot and white peach. Pure mineral on the palate with tension (acidity, structure and flavours in check). Finishes very clean and delicate on the palate. Chouilly tends to be rich, round, generous and full. Anne Malassagne was seeking freshness and a finer finish. 

If you are into Burgundy, Chouilly has been compared to Mersault. Complex, nutty and generous.

"A bit more densely textured than the Intense bottling. Very pretty and, again, rather lacy and transparent. Long and impressive."

100% Chardonnay from the grand cru of Chouilly. Base 2014. Reserve wines: 40% including a fraction of 2010 reserves aged in magnum under cork to 2014, hence ‘mag 14’. Three years on lees. Release 2018. 25% oak fermented. Dosage 5 g/l. 

Jancis Robinson 18/20
