A.R. Lenoble 1988 Rare Collection Brut Champagne

Vintage 1988 turned out to be one of the best pure vintages of the last century. At this stage, after nearly three decades of aging in our cellars, you'll notice a rich aromatic palette accompanied by beautiful notions of freshness. Walnut, dried apricot, coffee, and mingle truffles with notes of ripe fruits.

To celebrate great vintages in Champagne that end in '8', AR Lenoble is proud to be able to offer you a special release of our legendary AR Lenoble Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Vintage 1988 . We just disgorged 100 bottles after 29 years of aging on the lees in our cellars here in Damery.

The 1988 viticultural year began with a mild winter followed by spring frosts, a precocious April and a rainy month of May. Flowering happened under absolutely normal conditions and was followed by a summer that started off dry but was later punctuated by thunderstorms. In spite of these rather banal weather conditions, the grapes evolved perfectly in time for harvest to begin on 26 th September 1988.

The chardonnay grapes from Chouilly are remembered to have shown particularly promising potential during the 1988 Harvest at AR Lenoble. The alcoholic degree was higher than that of the two previous harvests, with an average of 9.2% vol. The acidity, with an average of 9.4 g/l, gave us the freshness to guarantee a great aging potential. Champagne House Notes
