When asked "Do you celebrate with wine after a performance?" by Wine Spectator, R&B singer Usher said: "Soon, hopefully, we'll have Champagne in my name that we can celebrate with—Usher de Venoge would be nice". Among the 5 newly released champagnes that got top scores in the latest edition of Wine Spectator, the decision about which Champagne to choose may be difficult to make.

In fact, before the end of the year's celebrations, wine critics are celebrating the excellence and uncompromising quality of de Venoge champagnes. Essi Avellan MW, Bettane & Desseauve, Tom Stevenson, Michael Edwards, Maggie Mc Nie MW, Simon Field MW, Antony Moss MW, Margaret Rand...recently gave high scores for their experience of the unique taste of Champagne de Venoge. Today, Champagne de Venoge has just received top scores from Wine Spectator for five newly released champagnes that are currently available for purchase:

Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne 1996 - 95 points

Brut Champagne Louis XV 1996 - 93 points (Newly released)

Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne 2002 - 93 points (Newly released)

Champagne de Venoge was also selected among the "100 Best Champagnes for 2011" in Fine Champagne Magazine. Essi Avellan, Master of Wine, conducted an extensive review of champagnes in this magazine and Champagne de Venoge got the 14th position among the Top 100 as well as the 3rd position for Vintage Champagne and Number 7 for Rose Champagne.

Among this list, Champagne Louis XV 1996 has already received international acclaims since the release of this prestigious cuvee. After spending more than 10 years in de Venoge's cellars in Epernay, this 1996 vintage is now on sale with a beautiful packaging and its famous «carafe» bottle. This moment in history reminds wine lovers that, on the 25th May 1728, King of France Louis XV signed a judgement that allowed the wines from Champagne to be both shipped and marketed in a bottle and not anymore only in barrels. A blend of 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay, this wine is a beautiful symbol of the great and long history of de Venoge Champagne House.
