Hey, we just found these 750ml. bottles, but Renee always like to keep half bottles of Champagne and Franciacorta on hand for “rewards” after a long day of work in the store, or while she is preparing dinner. The Tendil et Lombardi is her current favorite.
The Aube region was long ignored as a singular region, and in fact something of a stepchild in Champagne, but has always played an important, albeit silent, role for sourcing grapes to the more famous northern regions of Reims and Épernay. However, in recent years, the Aube has become highly regarded in its own right thanks to independent vignerons such as Cédric Bouchard, Marie-Courtin, and Dosnon & Lepage. The limestone and clay soils are quite like those found in Chablis and lends to great weight and complexity without sacrificing mineral acidity.
The hallmarks of quality for all Tendil & Lombardi Champagnes are the use of only first press wine and extended aging on the lees (a minimum of 24 months and usually more).
The Cuvée Brut Traditionis a blend of 30% Chardonnay and 70% Pinot Noir aged 24 months on the lees. Dosage: 9gr/l Alcohol: 12%
