And couldn’t we all use some of that!
We are quite enamoured by the quality and style of boutique maison Champagne Ellner. There is increased zip and transparency in the wines due to no malolactic fermentation.
Quality was affirmed just this month by the Wine Spectator, who rated 350 Champagnes, and put examples of Champagne Ellner in both their Vintage and non-Vintage Recommendation short lists. Every other Champagne on the recommendation lists is more expensive than Ellner!
This doesn’t surprise us. We chose to work with them because we were impressed by the quality of their wine, and the reason you may not have heard of them is that they are not spending your money on slick marketing or sponsorship. Nice.
Which to choose?
Buy some magnums. I have never in my life felt that opening a magnum was a mistake.
Buy a 3-litre / jeroboam for your next big family gathering. You will put a smile on everyone’s face for quite small cost.
Grande Reserve is satisfyingly rich and complex and will offer the broadest appeal. I drink this one all the time. You are getting something with aromatic complexity, breadth and length on the palate, for the price of the usual mean and green stuff out there.
Blanc de Blancs is a personal favourite – very tight, energetic Champagne to serve with food. If you are really into Champagne, or you like to serve Champagne during dinner, get this one to try.
The vintage examples offer superb value in the category.
