Germar Breton Millesime 2014

£45.95

Aube is Champagne’s most southerly and until-recently-least-fashionable growing region.  It's grapes have traditionally been undervalued by the rest of Champagne, largely due to geography (its vineyards are actually closer to Chablis than to Reims or Épernay). But actually, Aube has used this distance to its advantage. The region has been less swayed by the tide of tradition in Champagne, which is why grower-producers started springing up here way before the term became fashionable in the Marne.  

The Germar family have been cultivating the vineyards of Aube since the 50s. In 1989 Laurent Breton, youngest among his brothers, together with his wife Karine Breton decided launch their own winemaking activity in the Côte des Bars area near the village of Colombé-la-Fosse. In 2005, eager to develop their own Champagne, they decided to launch “Champagne Germar Breton”.

This 100% Chardonnay is a delicate cuvée with finesse and lightness. Fresh and fine with a tight texture.
