Charles Ellner:
It is interesting to note that "Charles Emile ELLNER" the founder of the House, began acquiring small vineyards in Epernay while he was at the start of a career as a professional "riddler". This marked the beginning of his adventure in the world of "Champagne" In addition to the work of cultivating his vines, his independent nature and his passion for wine led him to vinify and blend his wines and to sell them to a private clientele.

can't find a better $30 french champagne. The fine bubbles and yeasty nose is great. There are better champagnes but you have to spend north of $45 to get there. At $30, it is a regular drinker...

Dry and rich with minerality and chalkiness along with a strong acidity. Flavors of quince, candied lemon peel and ginger. Nice flavors and balance. 3/31/12

The NV Brut Cuvee de Reserve is 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir from the 2002 and 2003 vintages. The wine shows lovely freshness and minerality in a focused style, with an energetic finish.

A dry, minerally style, with lightly chalky acidity framing the frothy bead and flavors of biscuit, quince, candied lemon peel and fresh ginger. Lightly juicy and mouthwatering through to the finish. Best from 2013 through 2018.

A baked apple pie flavor - with all the ripe apple, pastry crust, nutmeg, anise and cinnamon notes - runs through this well-meshed Champagne, which is enlivened by fresh, almost lightly chalky acidity and good cut over-all, with a smoky finish. Drink now through 2016.

Riddling, or andldquo;remuageandrdquo; as the French call it, is the process of turning champagne bottles in the cellar. Doing so not only ensures proper secondary fermentation but also slowly sifts the lees (dead yeast) towards the bottles neck to be expelled later on (as is necessary in the mandeacute;thode Champenoise). Riddling is where Charles Ellner began his work with champagne. His house, in turn, has crafted this very fine product. It is 40% Pinot Noir and 60% Chardonnay and has notes of spice, tropical fruit, honey and a touch of butter on the palate. Not only will you reward yourself with this wonderful champagne but you will also honor those who, like Charles Ellner, spent hours meticulously turning these bottles for your future enjoyment.

An opulent Champagne, with mushroom, toast and honey aromas and flavors. Appealing, this draws you in with its lush texture and supple mousse. Fine length, with a long vanilla- and honey-tinged aftertaste. Drink now.

Rich and medium-weight, offering citrus and ginger flavors, with a touch of honey. It holds together well, with a mouthwatering finish. Thereandrsquo;s lovely ripeness overall, with a firm structure underneath. Drink now.
