About Our Ratings

Lelarge Pugeot 2004 Quintessence Brut Champagne, Premier Cru
Number 38 on Wine Enthusiast Magazine Top 100 Wines of 2013 One of the most exciting categories of wine today are grower Champagnes. Just recently in the New York Times Eric Asimov wrote "The grower-producer Champagnes emphasized authenticity and purity." Longtime growers in Champagne, the Lelarge familyís 21 acres of vineyards in the village of Vrigny are classified Premier Cru. As of 2012 their vineyards are certified organic. Current owner Dominique Lelarge was selling grapes to large producers like, Moet and Roederer for many years but decided recently that the quality of his grapes was too good to keep selling them off and he became a grower-producer. This is their flagship Champagne. Wine Enthusiast Magazine made this an Editors Choice. They scored it 94 points and said "Made from 50-year-old vines, this is a fine wine with a steely minerality. Partial fermentation in oak gives it complexity without detracting from itís elegant fruitiness. Floral notes and white and yellow fruits are balanced by a hint of toast. Itís ready to drink now, but will improve over the next few years."
