Champagne Lelarge Pugeot, Brut Tradition
91 points, Wine Enthusiast
Lelarge-Pugeot NV Premier Cru Brut Sparkling (Champagne)
In the dry style characteristic of the Lelarge house, this is a finely delineated wine with fresh, crisp lines of acidity cutting through bright citrus and green-apple flavors. The wine is light on the palate without sacrificing depth of flavor. It is showing good signs of maturity so drink now—2018.— R.V. (12/1/2013)
