This is from Southern Champagne, Riceys. The heavier soils in this region produce richer style of Champagne, it is great value, round and medium rich.
Gallimard is a small grower Champagne, specialising in Pinot based fizz. We use this one because it it has really good value for the price. Champagnes based around Pinot Noir, give a richer, textured style of fizz. Blanc de Noirs means it is a white wine made from black grapes, so there is no Chardonnay in this blend.
100% Pinot Noir
The beautiful rose gold colour of our Blanc de Noirs comes from the gentle whole bunch pressing of Pinot Noir grapes (hence, “white of blacks”). Coupled with extended on-lees ageing this has created a rich, complex and full sparkling wine with mature autolytic character and hints of red fruit notes.
Sparkling Portugese red, bursting with fruit and vibrancy. Delicious with cured hams, meats and quality bread.
CHARDONNAY 70%, PINOT NOIR 30%
Wonderfully developed, nutty, leesy character on the nose with hints of caramel. The palate is rich, with buttery flavours, hints of croissant and a great texture, making for a very approachable sparkler.
Drink as an aperitif, or with smoked salmon and rabbit terrine.
