NV – Champagne – 150 – Champagne
The house of Arlaux is one of Champagne’s best kept secrets, its vineyards are all Premier Cru on the “Montagne de Reims”, the greatest terroir in the region and most of its tiny hand-crafted production goes to the finest Michelin starred restaurants around the world, from Paris to Tokyo. This is champagne of the very highest quality at a price that is far below champagnes of a similar class. Robert Parker, a few years ago selected and blind-tasted 50 of the best non vintage champagnes on the market and the top 3 in order were: 1. Arlaux Brut Premier Cru NV – 92 Points 2. Bollinger Spécial Cuvée NV – 91 points 3. Taittinger Brut Réserve NV – 90 points Arlaux was described as ‘value priced’, Bollinger and Taittinger as ‘ultra premium priced’.
