Inside Information

Gerard Basset selected AR Lenoble Rosé Terroirs as one of his 16 favourite champagnes in December 2016. “I love this house, I love this rosé and I love the philosophy of Anne Malassagne and her brother Antoine and what they are doing there. This is a top producer flying under the radar making high-quality wines. I like the vintage wines, but this nonvintage rosé (based on 2012 fruit) is fantastic for the price. Flavours of yellow cherry and redcurrant with great depth that would suit pigeon salad with a raspberry vinaigrette.”

Vinum 17/20
With a salmon pink appearance and a superb, complex bouquet of stewed berries, this rosé is in the house’s characterful, individual style, intense yet elegant, fruity and spicy, ripe and long; excellent with poultry and white meat or exotic cuisine. Sophisticated.

Bettane et Desseauve Guide 2017 16/20

Wine Spectator 91/100

Smoky mineral notes and a citrusy overtone lead the way in this dry rosé Champagne. The chalky texture carries subtle accents of black cherry, orchard blossom and biscuit. A Champagne for food. Drink now through 2019.

La Revue du Vin de France Guide 2017 15/20

Tyson Stelzer’s Champagne Guide 2016-2017 92/100
AR Lenoble’s pinot noir and meunier is too rich to stand alone as a rosé, so the house tactically calls upon the structure and fresh acid drive of its Chouilly chardonnay…These citrus fruits are heightened by a touch of Bisseuil pinot noir, and the discreetly handled texture of a touch of oak. It concludes elegant and fine.

Falstaff 91/100

Wine Enthusiast 91/100
The base of this wine is Chardonnay with some Pinot Noir added to give color. The result is a pale-colored wine that’s ripe and full of fruit. It has a rich character lifted by the tight, mineral acidity in the aftertaste.

BWW 2020 Competition



BWW- The Best Wine of the World 2020 -competition

"We believed the opinion of 10,000 consumers or 1,000 professionals to be more correct and more significant than a small group of wine professionals.”


BWW-The Best Wine of the World-competition is by far the toughest wine competition on this planet. Unlike any other industry competition, only 1% of the wines involved will be awarded. 

BWW is also the largest wine competition: The BWW competition 2019 was held in the world's largest wine information service - tastingbook.com. 18,477 wines received in total 2,354,989 votes from 416,000 wine professionals and wine lovers from 116 countries during the three months voting period.
