 Product Description

The best of the best of the best

Whilst there is no such thing as a perfect year in champagne, Bernard de Nonancourt believed that through blending it is possible to create the perfect champagne.

Bernard de Nonancourt's inspiration for this wine was found in his grandfather’s precious tasting notebook which detailed the subtle differences between the various growths within Champagne and how these same growths varied from vintage to vintage. Bernard observed that there were years of exceptional freshness, years where finesse predominated and others when wines were much more structured. So, contrary to everything being done in Champagne, he decided to create a prestige cuvée that was not a single vintage but instead used several vintages, each with excellent but different characteristics. In effect, blending the best with the best to obtain the best, and so his quest for perfection began.

It was first released in 1959 though it had been previewed the year before when Bernard sought the opinion of some visiting restaurateurs from the Cote D’Azur. The first cuvée was based on 1955, 53 and 52 vintages, today we are tasting the 17th iteration.
The bottle is a replica of a bottle from 1705 in the midst of the ‘Sun King’s reign’ of Louis XIV, a period of unprecedented prosperity for France and this champagne celebrates that period.
