Champagne: 2017 New Releases

Champagne remains one of the hottest regions in the world. The emergence of small, family run domaines continues at a fast pace as the grower Champagne movement comfortably settles into its second generation. Many of the grandes marques, Champagne’s historic high-end houses, have quietly expanded their ranges, with an assortment of single-parcel and/or late-release ultra tête de cuvée bottlings that did not exist just a few years ago. All of that means consumers have never had more choice – at all ends of the quality and style spectrum – than they do today.

I haven’t done the math, but I would be willing to bet no other place in the world can match Piedmont for its sheer concentration of world-class restaurants, most of which are located within a few kilometers from each other.

2016 Domaine de la Voûte des Crozes/Nicole et Romain Chanrion Côte-de-Brouilly, 92 points

This Beaujolais displays impressive energy and finesse, in the style of the vintage, with excellent depth of flavor. While the 2016 has the potential to reward patience its vibrant red fruit, floral and mineral character make it awfully hard to resist now, so why wait? (JR)
