Champagne Gremillet, Brut Selection Nv

Champagne Gremillet, Brut Selection Nv

Ref: A0736

Our 'House' Champagne made from a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. This is excellent value for money and has a lovely elegant 'mousse' ('mousse' is a term used with sparkling wines to describe the finesse of the bubbles within the wine). The high proportion of Pinot Noir in the blend results in a champagne that is quite creamy in texture and has a lovely depth of fruit. 12.5% abv

Jean-Michel Gremillet’s ‘grower’s Champagne’ continues to be extremely well written-up in press reviews but, more importantly, has won over an increasingly large band of supporters in the past fifteen years. These are extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.

The Gremillet family own some prime-site vineyards in the Aube département and their impeccable cellars are situated in the village of Balnot-sur-Laignes, about 50km. to the south-east of Troyes. The Brut Selection has a firm structure with a lovely soft, toasty fruit and pale straw colour. 9 g/l residual sugar.

GREMILLET, Balnot-sur-Laignes
A small négociant with 40 ha of their own Côte des Bar vines near Riceys and agreeably low prices. Pinot Noir dominates.

Gremillet NV Champagne- Article from Jancis Robinson entitled "New Wave Champagnes" June 21st, 2018.
This seems rather a steal to me. Light and well balanced with perceptible dosage but flirtatious (non-excessive) mousse and no searing acidity or astringency. Reasonably persistent. Quite a surprise at this price. Not a wine to keep but I would happily serve this at a party. GV

This is a lusciously raspberry filled pink sparkling wine from Frassinnelli. Great value and brilliant for parties.
