In Champagne many big producers go for volume but husband and wife team Bénédicte Ruppert and Emmanuel Leroy strive for elegance and nuance above all. Ruppert-Leroy duo carry their land like they would a newborn with a soft skull and a jello neck. They have a teeny certified organic property in the southern end of Champagne that they treat better than I treat my body. This blanc de noir is lively, expressive and perfectly structured and it’s what you should buy if you need cheering up. All of us agree, it is the cuvee from Ruppert-Leroy.
