I have a soft spot for this Champagne, beautifully aromatic Pinot Noir, gentle caressing palate, the balance of complexity and freshness is wonderful. The pure black grapes give the wine a slightly pink hue, though it is very faint, hence the name of the wine which translates to 'eye of the partridge' which apparently turns very faintly bloodshot in the moments before facing impending doom...

Information About Launois Champagne

The village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger in the Cote des Blancs, famous for its Grand Cru Chardonnay vineyards, is home to Champagne Launois Pere et Fils. The tradition and dedication of eight generations have honed the wine-making skills here, the quality is striking, from the Cuvee Clemence pure Chardonnay, to the Blanc de Noirs Oeil de Perdrix. We also get a small allocation of their old vine Special Club which is just brilliant. Severine and Caroline Launois also host a Champagne Museum.

Tasting Date : 09 October 2015

Medium gold, this has that Champagny nose in spades, mineral, earthy notes, with a sherbet edge, and hazelnut. There is an excellent complexity to the flavour profile, the palate is creamy and relaxed, it just drifts across the tongue with so much composure and balance. Subtle gamey notes coming through on the back of the palate, this is impressive stuff and brilliant value for money. There is precision here of a quality which is surprising at this price level.
