Champagne Gardet, Chigny les Roses, Marne, France.
Champagne Gardets top non vintage wine. This cuvee is made from grapes grown in the 1er Cru & Grand Cru vineyards in the Montagne de Reims, Cotes de Blancs and Vallée de la Reims.
A blend of 33% Pinot Noir, 33% Pinot Meunier and 33% Chardonnay.
Around 20% of the blend is older ‘reserve’ wines previousy aged for 1 to 2 years in oak barrels. These precious reserve stocks give the wine a complexity that will delight all Champagne drinkers. Furthermore the wine is matured on its lees for at least 6 to 8 years to provide a richer flavour and delicious softness.
On taste this ripe and mature Champagne may be enjoyed as a fine aperitive or with good food.
