‘Great discovery…exquisite…warm brioche…lovely richness’ "A sip is a proper sliver of luxury" - Victoria Moore (The Telegraph)


Tasting Notes

The current release is a blend of four vintages, with 35 per cent from 2013 and the balance from 2012, 2011, and 2010 kept in large oak foudres for 15 months and aged for a further three years on the lees before disgorgement.This is special! WINNER OF the COUP DE COEUR for BEST CHAMPAGNE IN ITS REGION. The aromas pay tribute to those grand cru Chardonnay grapes. Ample and generous, with quintessential champagne notes of brioche, lemon, white pear and biscuit combined with a freshness as invigorating as sea spray. It has that combination of power and elegance that you find in Billecart-Salmon's Blanc de Blancs. The palate is substantial, a grand champagne in both richness of flavour and texture. Lemon syllabub springs to mind, with its blend of creamy mascarpone and sharp lemon rind, then it expands into riper flavours of apricot, honeyed peach and millefeuille pastry. It's a champagne that you can drink now or lay down for 3-5 years as it will gain further complexity. - Matured in large oak casks like the great Champagnes of the past - - Only approximately twenty other Champagne houses use these traditional sized barrels - - Outstanding quality, made exclusively from first pressing juice - - a blend of 50% Grand Cru Chardonnay, 25% Premier Cru Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes -


Press Note:

"A gleaming, quiveringly good chardonnay-based champagne (with 25% pinot meunier and 25% pinot noir). It is both luscious and taut, like a lemon tart from an expensive patisserie, with exquisite pastry and sharp, icing sugar-dusted, filling. In contrast to the nice but forgettable supermarket bottles that have flooded our lives, Collard-Picard Cuvée Prestige pauses the world. A sip is a proper sliver of luxury." – Victoria Moore, Telegraph Weekend, April 11, 2015 BEST CHAMPAGNE FOR CHRISTMAS 2014.- The Telegraph "This is a great discovery, made by Champenois couple Olivier Collard and Caroline Picard. This is predominantely grand cru Chardonnay with an equal blend of premier cru Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, and is a blend of four vintages; 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008. It is matured in 700 litre foudres for 15 months and aged for a further three years in bottle before disgorgement. The result is exquisite, with notes of melon and warm brioche. Lovely richness on the palate with ripe apricot and sweet apple characters with a hint of honey on the finish. Taster: Christelle Guibert. Alc 12.5%" "A great example of a progressive grower champagne house, now with cellars on the prestigious Avenue du Champagne in Epernay."
