NV Champagne Roland Champion Cuvée d'Aramis - Washington Post

Washington Post"This is a powerful champagne, showing the red-berry fruit of its red grapes — pinot meunier and pinot noir — and the chalky minerality of the region. Delightful, and a terrific value."

Washington Post (Dave McIntyre, December 19th 2012), (Between "Very good" & "Excellent")

bti"Brilliant pale yellow straw color. Lively, complex aromas of honeyed biscuit, buttery praline, and poached Asian pear with a supple, lively, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and an elegant, long creme brulee, white balsamic reduced lemon, spiced nuts and tangerines, and grassy earth and minerals finish with well-integrated, fine tannins. A layered and vibrant champagne with cascading waves of fresh and mature flavors."

i winereview logo"This Meunier based blend offers generous aromas of peach and apple pie with leesy notes. On the palate, it’s plump and chewy with bold flavors of melon, white cherry, and apricot complemented by toasty lees. Finishes long with nice grip and a smoky nuance that lingers. A blend of 70% Pinot Meunier, 20% Pinot Noir, and 10% Chardonnay. Good value in a grower Champagne."

Wine Spectator 90 Pts"This delicate version features well-meshed acidity, with a thread of aromatic ground spice winding through the flavors of fresh quince, white peach and green almond. Moderate finish. Drink now. 900 cases made."

Wine Enthusiast 88 Pts"This is a full-bodied wine, with the Pinot fruit showing strongly in the blend, producing richness and a sweet-tasting character. This most recent cuvée from Roland Champion is powerful - a fine combination of minerality and bottle age. Keep it for 3-4 years, but it can be consummed now."
