CHAMPAGNE WINE REGION

It is said that a champagne bottle is popped open every second of the day somewhere in the world.

The last 20 years has seen unprecedented growth in export sales, led by the UK along with mergers and acquisitions of brands and estates by the big Champagne houses. Whilst auspicious brands as Dom Pérignon, Krug, Pol Roger and Louis Roederer's Cristal rightly command attention and respect, the very essence and spirit still remains with the growers and the quality of the vineyards.

TASTING NOTES

From one of the very finest vintages of the past three decades this is already oozing with class and sensuous appeal. It is marvellously complex with ripe aromas of ripe orchard fruit and zesty citrus. The palate just continues the seduction with an array of flavours that reminds you why Champagne is one of the noblest wines of all.

Deliciously precise with high toned citrus fruit providing thrilling focus and definition.

TASTING NOTES

The nose of this Champagne is a spring bouquet: rose, wild strawberry, raspberry and later blackberry, combine perfectly to offer the taster aromas, which would be unexpected in a normal rosé Champagne. The mouth follows on from the nose, with the structure of the Pinot Noir leaving at a convincing vinosity at the finish. By virtue of its freshness, this...

Very attractive, bright and fragrant red fruits on the nose here. This has a wealth of fresh yeasty characters, fresh pastry and bread dough, plus red fruits, pink grapefruit, and some floral notes too. The palate has a strong nectarine and light cherry flavor thread. Chardonnay has a lot to say here; the texture is creamy and the balance right...

Light yellow-gold. Ripe peach and poached pear on the deeply perfumed nose, with complicating notes of iodine, truffle and musky flowers. Smells a lot like a Chassagne.

CHAMPAGNE WINE REGION

As important as the big name brands will continue to be, Champagne domaines such as Pierre Gimonnet epitomise the spirit and, above all, future for this region. It is worth remembering that there are over 300 villages and defined vineyard areas in Champagne but only 51 of these command Premier or Grand Cru status.

The region's name conjures up an immediate sense of celebration and joie de vivree, revered the world, with an image which the Champagne industry has promoted brilliantly for over a hundred years.
