This family owned Champagne house is situated in the heart of Epernay. The business was founded at the end of the 19th Century by Charles Emile Ellner and is today run by his Grandson, Jean Pierre. Owning 54 ha of vineyards located in 15 villages in the Champagne region, Ellner is unusual in producing such a high proportion (50%) of its Champagne from its own vineyards.
A blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir, the bouquet is firm and focused with subtle aromas of nougat and brioche. The mousse is creamy, mineral driven and tightly knit with black cherry, almond and a delicious biscuit character giving added dimension. The finish is fresh and long with a hint of citrus.
Perfect as an aperitif, or try it with salmon in puffed pastry or crab flan
