“At AR Lenoble, we strive to create wines with balance located somewhere between opulence and elegance. The goal is to create wines which are precise, vinous and full of character—wines recognized for their round, creamy texture with perfectly integrated bubbles. This Champagne is a testament to the values and winemaking philosophies we share with our friends at Jordan in California.” —AR Lenoble Winemaker Antoine Malassagne

Tasting Notes

Brilliant gold color with radiant bubbles. Subtle aromas of apple, pear and brioche define its elegant bouquet. Smooth and fresh on the palate, with a creamy texture balanced by lively acidity, crisp apple and citrus flavors and an attractive steely character. The reserve wines leave a lovely impression of richness that carries through a lingering finish with mineral notes and a hint of citrus. Drink now through 2020.

Food Pairing Suggestions

Because the Jordan Cuvée is a non-vintage brut that balances opulence and elegance, it’s a versatile wine for food pairing. It can be enjoyed as an aperitif, with light hors d’oeuvres such as antipasti, tapas or shellfish, but it also complements salads, ceviche, linguine with clams, shrimp dishes, and sushi and other Asian cuisines. This Champagne’s lively acidity also cuts through the fat in an array of cheeses, such as Comté or chevre, and stands up to spicy seafood or chicken dishes.
