Inaugural Holiday Release of Relié Cuvée Champagne!

Our Longtime Dream of Offering Our Members Champagne for Celebrations has Been Realized!

Our Relié Cuvée is very limited and available to Allocation members at $75 per 750ml bottle. Purchases are limited to six bottles.

Please note that this is a phone or email order only. Call is at (707) 944-5620 (Prompt 3).

The inaugural holiday release of The Good Life Wine Collective’s Relié Cuvée Champagne (roo-lee-ay) is a tale of our American owner families linking their love of wine with the Guilleminot (gill-me-no) family of Champagne. These family connections were made through Frederick Boelen, Tasting Gallery Manager from sister winery Jessup Cellars.

Frederick grew up in Normandy with a French father and British mother. His British uncle Johnny married Carine Guilleminot, whose father Michel has guided the Champagne to its highly respected reputation today.

The Guilleminot family has been making Champagne for four generations. To celebrate the link between families across the globe, we’ve created Relié Cuvée, which means ‘linked’ or ‘bound’ – similar to a book binding, une reliure.

Relié Cuvée is a Brut Blanc de Noirs (100% Pinot Noir) Champagne, with a blend of approximately 70% current vintage and 30% of reserve wines. The Champagne is fruit forward, yet elegant with very fine bubbles. Fragrant fruit on the nose combine with a classic biscuity note and vibrant accent.
