Gremillet, Brut Sélection

France, Champagne

From a family-owned estate in the Aube Valley. A Pinot Noir dominant blend this is a savoury and fuller bodied style, which exemplifies the character of this important satellite area of Champagne.”

Origin

From vineyards about 40km south of Troyes - in the Aube Valley. A slightly warmer area than the main Reims-Epernay region, grapes here achieve greater ripeness which leads to a richer fruit, producing the classic, baked biscuit flavours mixed with characteristic, toasty yeast overtones.

Grape Variety

70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay.

Only the first, lightest pressings are used, as usual for fine Champagne. Slow fermentation takes place in the bottle, before the Champagne is matured on its lees for at least 24 months.

Alcohol Percentage

12%

Cellar Potential

Will improve for up to a year in bottle, but then drink within two years maximum.

Producer

Gremillet is a family owned estate of around 45 hectares; traditionally winegrowers, since the 18th century they have sold their grapes to other producers. However, since 1979 they have been making their own Champagne, with Anne Gremillet currently in charge of proceedings.

Food Match

Obviously a natural aperitif; but the Pinot Noir dominance of this Champagne gives it the backbone to match all sort of nibbles and salads or light fish dishes.

Suitable for vegetarians.
