CHAMPAGNE FRIDAY – Lancelot Royer “Cuvee des Chevaliers”

No meetings this Friday so I’m posting a favorite from the last couple of weeks. Lanceleot Royer is a grower/estate bottler in the village of Cramant in the Cote de Blancs of Champagne. Cramant is a Grand Cru village so this is a 100% Chardonnay Grand Cru Champagne.

LANCELOT ROYER Cuvee des Chevaliers Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru, Champagne, NV
Tech: 12% Alcohol. 100% Chardonnay all from Grand Cru vineyards in Cramant in the Cote de Blancs.       Sensory: Straw in color, bright and clear and fully sparkling; dry, medium-bodied with crisp acidity. Fresh but ripe mixed citrus with a hint of tree fruit accented with chalky children’s vitamins mineral terroir; long clean, fresh finish. This is a toasty, yeasty, focused, rich Champagne offering citrus and spice. Classic Chardonnay bubbles. Long and alive in the mouth. Delicious. Excellent. BS: 94+. ($48.00 per 750ml)
