Jordan Vineyard & Winery Debuts First Jordan Cuvée by Champagne AR Lenoble

Jordan Vineyard & Winery announces the official launch of its first Jordan Cuvée, 100 percent produced by Champagne AR Lenoble, owned and operated by the Malassagne family in the Champagne region of France. The Jordan Cuvée by Champagne AR Lenoble is a special bottling of non-vintage brut that celebrates the shared business values and common winemaking philosophies of both families.

The Jordan Cuvée by Champagne AR Lenoble will make its official debut to the public at the Belle Époque Spring at Jordan on May 13, a themed event celebrating Jordan’s new releases, including the first-ever Jordan Chef’s Reserve Caviar by Tsar Nicoulai; tickets are available online for $95 per person. The Jordan Cuvée will also be served at select wine dinners, all Jordan Winery culinary events and many Jordan Estate Rewards member experiences, including the new Champagne & Caviar Tasting. Due to limited availability, the Jordan Cuvée will not be served on daily Tours & Tastings at Jordan.

The Jordan Cuvée by Champagne AR Lenoble is comprised of 30% grand cru chardonnay from Chouilly, 35% premier cru pinot noir from Bisseuil and 35% pinot meunier from Damery, with reserve wines comprising 35 percent of the blend. This Champagne spent four years aging on the lees before debut, and its base wine vintage is 2012. The packaging includes both wineries’ brands on the front label and capsule—a non-traditional approach to a private label—and also describes the partnership on the back label. Uncommon in Champagne packaging, a cabouchon with the Jordan wordmark, which was assembled and attached by hand by the Malassagne family and their staff, graces each muselet. The Jordan Cuvée is a special selection of the house’s non-vintage brut produced in its cellars with grapes from AR Lenoble’s vineyards and long-term growers.

The Jordan Cuvée retails for $49 and will only be sold direct to guests who visit the winery in Healdsburg, beginning May 13. Online purchasing is not available at this time. Only 500 nine-liter cases were imported.
