Jancis Robinson publiceerde recent een artikel over champagne. De wijnen van AR Lenoble worden werkelijk heel goed beoordeeld! Maar liefst 17/20 punten voor de 'basiscuvée' Intense. Onderstaand een deel van de tekst:

Jancis Robinson: “AR Lenoble is probably the most admired boutique family house right now. There is an international buzz and it reflects the outburst of family creative energy in the past few years from brother and sister owners Antoine and Anne Malassagne. Based in Damery in the Marne, independent and family-owned, the house’s jewel of terroir quality is their 10 ha (25 acres) of Chardonnay in Grand Cru Chouilly on the Côte des Blancs. It provides the finesse and elegant minerality which is the heart of all their wines. Ploughing the soil, grassing the alleys (for low yields) and near-organic HVE-certified viticulture and winery practices all make for intense fruit and fresh precision in all their wines. Here is a small house making a big point.”
