CHAMPAGNE AND OTHER SPARKLING WINES

Fizz - GREMILLET, Brut Selection. Champagne

GREMILLET, Brut Selection. Champagne

Alcohol Percentage: 12%
Area: From vineyards about 40km south of Troyes in the Aube Valley - a slightly warmer area than the main Reims-Epernay region
Grape Variety: 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay
Producer: Gremillet are a family owned estate of around 45 hectares. Until 1979 they sold their grapes to others but since then have been making their own Champagne. Anne Gremillet is currently in charge
Cellar Potential: Will improve for up to a year, but then drink within 3 years maximum
Food Match: Obviously a natural aperitif; but the Pinot Noir dominance of this Champagne gives it the backbone to match all sort of nibbles and salads or fish dishes
Old Bridge Rating: From a family-owned estate in the Aube Valley. Aged for a relatively short period, this is a crisp, light, lively style. But it shows none of the rather bitter, sweet-and-sour flavours of many less expensive Champagnes
Press Reviews: Silver Medal, International Wines and Spirits Competition, 2011.
16.5/20 in 'The World of Fine Wine', Issue 32, 2011 - "The palate echoes the aromatics of the nose, dominated by minerals that give direction through an attractive blend of apples, pears, nuts and floral intrigue. Good wine" Alison Buchanan. "...Finely balanced mouthfeel confirms the nose...Quality here and a proper time on lees" Michael Edwards
