With over 200 years of history in every bottle, it’s no wonder Charles de Cazanove’s Head Winemaker, Christophe Rapeneau, was named Sparkling Winemaker of the Year at the International Wine Challenge 2017.
We think this wine is remarkable value and from one of the most important family owned champagne producers. As the flamboyantly Gallic Jean Remy Rapeneau (pictured) likes to mention, “We make Champagne not handbags and shoes” a poke at the conglomerates that own most of the big name Champagne houses. Order a six pack for delivery this week and taste the difference.
Charles de Cazanove Champagne Brut Rose – $54.95 per bottle – 91 Points Wine Spectator.
Refined, with well-meshed acidity providing a backbone for delicate flavors of dried currant, graphite, green plum, meringue and grapefruit zest. Fresh, smoke-tinged finish.
This undeniably value-priced Rose Champagne punches well above its weight, and then some.
