CHARLES DE CAZANOVE BRUT TRADITION

WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS - "This Champagne offers an array of flavor, including toasted brioche, Gala apple, lemon zest, graphite and ginger, with a touch of honey. Elegant, but with good intensity and a moderate, nut-tinged finish. Drink now through 2018. 2,000 cases imported."

Made of 60% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier and 10% Chardonnay, this Brut is configured more for easy cocktail quaffing, rather than for contemplation. That said, this is still an impeccably crafted and poised Champagne as these Wine Spectator notes suggest.

Founded in Avize in 1811 by Charles-Gabriel de Cazanove, the Charles de Cazanove house rose to prominence under the guidance of his son, Charles Nicolas. Charles Nicolas was a trained botanist who gained fame for his work fighting the phylloxera scourge. Sales of the brand expanded rapidly after the Second World War and today the firm is now the largest family-owned Champagne producer as well being the second-leading Champagne brand sold in France. The firm was purchased by its present owners, the Lombard family, in 1985. The house style is a modern one emphasizing fruit, freshness and accessibility. Despite all their history and sales success in overseas, Charles de Cazanove is virtually unknown in the U.S. This anomalous situation is now being addressed by the winery through some very aggressive pricing programs that we are only too happy to pass on to you. It should be noted that the lionís share of the juice for De Casanoveís Champagnes is sourced from the companyís own highly-rated vineyards, a factor which results in lower production costs as well more consistent quality.
