CHAMPAGNE AGRAPART

Mineral Extra-Brut, 2011

Champagne Agrapart led by Pascal Agrapart extends over 10 ha in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, in its commune of Avize and around Cramant and Oiry. This Blanc de Blanc is light golden in colour with a perfect mousse and a nose of citrus and orchard fruit. The palate has a fresh acidity, a chalky minerality, and notes of apple, marmalade, apricot and lemon peel on the lingering finish. Delicious with truffles omelette, sushis and sushimis, or creamy veal escalop.

CHAMPAGNE DRAPPIER

Nature sans soufre, NV

Champagne Drappier Nature sans soufre (without sulphur) made from 100% Pinot Noir, has a very fresh nose, evoking pear, lemon and hazelnuts. In the mouth, a very dry and mineral Champagne that overflows with notes of green apple, roasted hazelnuts, brioche and orange blossom, with elegant bubbles and a fine, persistent finish. Wonderful with caviar, oysters, berry pavlova

CHAMPAGNE EGLY-OURIET

Brut Rosé Grand Cru, NV

An elegant and vibrant Champagne almost rose gold in appearance with a fine bead. The nose bursts with aromas of strawberry, brioche, spicy vanilla and nutmeg. The palate is abundant in notes of strawberries, strawberry leaves, oranges and lemons with a grippy acidity on the finish. Pair beautifully with canapes, raspberry tart.

CHAMPAGNE FRANCOISE BEDEL

L’Ame de la Terre Extra Brut, 2005

Francoise Bedel is an organic producer characterised by champagnes with high proportions of Pinot Meunier and long lees ageing. L’Ame de la Terre, made from 60% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir, is golden in colour with copper highlights and vivacious bubbles. On the nose we find aromas of ripe yellow apples, citrus and plums. The palate is rich and complex with notes of lemon, lime, butter and apricot, with a balanced acidity on the finish. Exquisite with a truffle risotto.

CHAMPAGNE LARMANDIER BERNIER

Rosé de Saignée Extra Brut, NV

Blood orange in colour with fine bubbles and aromas of berries and floral notes. The palate is full on notes of wild strawberries, pink grapefruit, raspberries, candied plums, pie crust combined with a chalky minerality, sharp acidity and an intense and persistent finish. Sublime with grilled lobster.
