The Blanc de Noir Reserve is 100% Pinot Noir wine made by 6th generation winemaker, Arnaud Gallimard in Riceys (South Champagne). The heavier soils of their vineyards in the Cotes des Bar sub-region, tend to produce a richer style of wine and this one is no exception.
Unofficially organic, the Gallimard Family have embraced natural and sustainable farming methods with no insecticides or pesticides, no tilling of the soil and a minimal addition of sulphur. The fruit is slightly macerated in the press and the result is an unusual orange tint as well as a rich and fruity bouquet. The process of malolactic fermentation also develops creamy and fruity flavours.
A truly independent Champagne house with an ethical approach. Expect an opulent wine with wild berry, cherry and tart apple fruit and a toasted brioche finish. What’s not to love?!
Good for the price
