Bernard Lonclas Millesime Champagne 2013 (3pk)
- Rich, complex
The 2022 Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championship Chairman’s Award goes to... Bernard Lonclas. This recognition makes them one of the greatest Champagne producers of the moment. Congratulations are in order; they are our grower-producer friends, and what they do is nothing short of outstanding. The 2013 ‘millésime’ vintage is a seriously great Champagne, too. Despite the understated, humble label, this is all about what’s in the glass. There are meyer lemons and grapefruit pith flavours that speak to an 80% dominance of chardonnay. Mouthfillingly fine bubbles interplay with lees, toastiness and a gorgeous saline slipperiness that flirts with superb nervous tension. Are you looking for a reason to drink one of the Champagne producers? Here’s a tip - you don’t need one. All you need to do is make the decision. Go for it.
Full price $260.00 from the producer.

Champagne is not generic sparkling wine, it's a region. There I said it. Get it right people. The reason the French get their lingerie in a twizzle when we call Trilogy 'Champoyne' is the history, the money and the angst that have all gone into making Champagne what it is today: a bureaucratic, strictly controlled, marketing-driven behemoth, that still manages to pump out some of the world's finest and most consistent wines. Adding bubbles to wine was a masterstroke of genius, and makes wine from marginal regions not only palatable, but unique and eminently desirable. But it's the way the grapes are grown, the land they're grown in, and the way the bubbles are generated that makes traditional method sparkling (which all Champagne is) special. There will always be alternatives, but none have the history and marketing power of the luxury Champagne powerhouses. You're not buying wine; you're buying a brand name. And that's ok.
