About this Item

2008 L'Alchimiste Rosé Extra-Brut Premier Cru
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

David Léclapart is the 4th generation to farm his family’s 3 hectare estate, located in Trépail, a premier cru village in Montagne de Reims. He took over the winemaking mantle from his father who passed in 1996, and began releasing wines under his own name in 1998. David Léclapart has been making the finest contemporary examples of this terroir. David Léclapart is one of Champagne’s most vocal advocates of biodynamic farming, having been certified biodynamic since 2000, and with an approach in the cellar governed by the same principles. All of his Champagnes are released without dosage, and all are typically low in sulphur. These are highly individual Champagnes, marked by a striking purity and elegance, as well as a racy tension and savoury complexity derived from Trépail’s chalky soils.

Critics Ratings

‘Amazingly fresh, not tannic, fruity, raspberry, cranberry and some black currant, refreshing acidity. For the next 3-5 years.’ - Cellartracker.com, 93/100 (May 2022)
