A great value alternative to Champagne, with real class. It's made by the same method as Champagne, with a high proportion of Chardonnay in this Réserve edition. The result is superb fruit intensity, depth and freshness. A bubbly of distinction.
We’ve listed Roche Lacour for over two decades, and the great haul of awards over the years – and 5-Star reviews – for the 'standard' edition speak volumes. It's our bestselling sparkler by a mile. The winemaker Viviane Gianesini works her magic beneath the cool hills of Limoux. Here, the monks of Saint Hilaire are said to have mastered sparkling wine methods in 1531, centuries ahead of Dom Pérignon. Bottles then were fragile and didn’t travel, so their success remained a secret. This special edition cuvée, rich in Chardonnay, like Champagne, and oak fermented, just like Krug, was aged a full 30 months in bottle, on its lees, and has only just been disgorged. The result is superb toasty complexity and length, like great Champagne.
"Excellent crémant. Brilliant alternative to champagne and just so drinkable"
