Staff Reviews

Ric McLeod - Premier Wine & Spirits September 24, 1997

"What better way to celebrate than to pop a cork from a bottle of fine French Champagne. Full of life, this bubbling sparkler has a fine effervescence with creamy fruit that highlights smooth vanilla, pear, and spice notes and a crisp toasty finish. It’s like “drinking the stars.” So let’s lift our glasses and toast to the good times the holidays bring, we may never pass this way again."

Critical Acclaim

WS91 Wine & Spirits December 1, 1993

"Beautifully integrated aroma. Smooth and creamy in the mouth, rich with fruit, the fine effervescence carries the wine’s full flavors as if they were weightless. Dry, leesy length of flavor, with touches of complexity." (91 pts.)

WE91 Wine Enthusiast 11/1/1994

"A clean and lively nose leads to an explosion of bubbles on the entry. Full bodied and high in acidity, the palate shows a zesty green fruit quality through the lingering finish." (91 pts.)

BTI89 Beverage Testing Institute April 1, 2001

"Pale golden hue. Impressively nutty, toasty, developed aromas. Concentrated and vibrant flavors on the attack with a medium body and a piercing, tautly-fruited finish." (89 pts.)

SP88 Wine Spectator Dec 31, 1994

"Clean, delicate and complete; a light style with bright fruit flavors and floral, spicy accents. It has great balance and a subtle, fine effervescence." (88 pts.)

RP88 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Dec 2008

"The NV Brut La Française is a pretty, mid-weight wine with good definition in its ripe peaches, flowers and sweet spices, and a refined, clean finish. This is an attractive, well-balanced NV Champagne to enjoy now and over the next few years. The blend is 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay. This is Lot: L7146PK00100, disgorged April 10, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2010." (88 pts.)

Champagne

Bring on the bubbly! Perhaps no other wine region in the world has the name recognition of Champagne, to the point where people often mistakenly use the word "Champagne" to describe any sparkling wine. Yet only wines produced within the region can legally be called "Champagne," and to this day it produces some of the finest sparkling wines known to earth.

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
