Lancelot-Royer NV Brut Nature Grand Cru Cuvee des Chevaliers
Hand-crafted by hand by winemaker Michel Chauvet, an accomplished maker of grower Champagne. One of the smallest domaines in Champagne, Chauvet has uncompromising dedication to the terroir in which the vineyards are located. This wine is aged 3-4 years on its lees, longer than usual for a non-vintage champagne. Unfined and unfiltered, wines are bottled by hand.
The addition of 30% reserve wine really shows in this 0 dosage (sugar) cuvee. Bursting with stone fruit but amplified by the most intoxicating floral expression. Long, textured and seriously complex. Sexy stuff.
