"Le Mesnil is the home of some of the most legendary and expensive blanc de blancs Champagne in the world." - Lettie Teague, The Wall Street Journal
Grand Cru Champagne for under $40? No wonder this is our top selling holiday Champagne every year! It would almost certainly be our top seller of the entire year, but it comes in and sells out in heartbeat every time. Today we've got the latest, freshest release of this go-to bubbly and you'll want to load up on this one in anticipation of the holidays.
'Le Mesnil' is arguably THE greatest site in Champagne. Located in the Cote de Blancs, it represents one of the most prized areas to grow Chardonnay (Blanc de Blancs), producing some of the most legendary (and expensive!) wines of the region.
We opened a bottle from this new parcel as soon as it landed, and it's incredibly impressive once again! Beautiful toasty brioche, great energy and length, with lovely overall elegance. This unquestionably drinks well above this price point.
It is nearly impossible to find Grand Cru Champagne at this price point, never mind 'Le Mesnil'. Grab some while we have it available, you'll be glad that you did. Cheers!
