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.

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.
