NV Gremillet Sélection Brut Champagne

£30.50 inc. VAT

Here’s a super small production  ‘Grower’s Champagne’ available at a super price!

The Gremillet estate was founded in 1979 when Jean-Michel Gremillet inherited a plot of vines from his mother. Today the house owns 45 hectares of vineyards, the majority being Pinot Noir which suits the clay and limestone soils of the area. There is a high emphasis on sustainability and pesticides are used at an absolute minimum. One of their cuvées is certified organic and the plan is that this is the start of a bigger process. Much care is taken during vinification with only a light, first pressing used so we are talking great finesse here. The wine is aged on its lees for over 18 months before being released.

The term ‘Grower’s Champagne’ describes producers that use just grapes for just their own vineyards. Many of the larger Champagne houses buy from outside due to the high volume of bottles produced. Although not certified organic Gremillet practice sustainable farming and keep chemicals to an absolute minimum.

A blend of 70% Pinot Noir & 30% Chardonnay. There is a wonderful freshness on the nose with hints of white flower, brioche and a touch of peach. A lovely delicate mousse and a bright, citrusy finish.

An outstanding Champagne for the money.
