A stunning, award winning Champagne that delivers on all fronts!Tasting NoteThis Champagne shows fine mousse in the glass and fresh floral aromas mixed with characteristic sweet, doughy overtones, which are balanced by richer fruit, peach skin characters and classic baked biscuit flavours with a crisp citrus finish.Producer DetailsThe Gremillet estate comprises of 33 hectares of vineyards and is situated in a small village 45 kilometres from Troyes, the historic capital of Champagne, 180 kilometres south of Paris. The vines lie on steep, sun-drenched hillsides, ideal for creating a classic baked biscuit, rich fruit Champagne.In The VineyardThe vineyards, situated in the southern reaches of Troyes achieve greater ripeness which leads to a richer fruit and classic baked biscuit flavours mixed with characteristic toasty yeast overtones.In The WineryOnly the first, lightest pressings are used, as is usual for fine Champagne. Classic slow second fermentation in bottle followed by maturing on the lees for at least 18 months before being disgorged and released for sale.Food RecommendationsDrinks very nicely well chilled on its own of course (but not on your own - this is the sociable drink par excellence after all!) , but also recommended with light nibbles, salads and simple fish dishes.Awards & PressNV: International Wine & Spirits Competition 2012 - BronzeNV: Le Guide Hachette des Vins 2011 NV: IWSC 2011 - SilverNV: Challenge International du Vin.
