Champagne Jacquart Blanc de Blanc 2012 (1x75cl)

The varied origins of their Chardonnays are one of the key components of the Jacquart signature. This very singular 100% Chardonnay cuvée is the fruit of a blend of a variety of nuances, selected with lavish care and attention. Crafted from one single variety, Chardonnay, and only the noblest of grapes, which find their pure and unreserved expression in a vintage of absolute exception. The 2009 vintage will be remembered for its excellent conditions and superb balance.

This champagne is made using the area's traditional methods but it also spends 5 - 6 years maturing on its lees giving the champagne its unique character.

A seductive nose, full of finesse, with the fragrance of acacia flowers, rose petals and lime blossom. A few minutes airing allows notes of preserved lemon, almond milk, fresh hazelnut, brioche and pear compote to develop. Fresh and supple with beautifully creamy, soft effervescence, this is a mouth-filling champagne with a chalky minerality and pronounced aromas of Mirabel plums and herbs such as coriander and anise. The finish is lingering, concentrated, full, sensual and mouthwateringly saline.

£42.20

Champagne Jacquart Brut Mosaïque Rosé Non Vintage (1x 75cl)

Delicate bubbles wrapped in intense salmon pink. Red berry-fruit aromas of ripe redcurrants, cherries and wild strawberries give way to notes of plum. Fresh and full, with a fine finish.

Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millenaires 1995 (1x 75cl)

Awarded 96 points and a Platinum Best In Show at the Decanter World Wine Awards (www.decanter.com): see their August 2017 DWWA supplement (see blue link below).

Heidsieck Blanc des Millenaires 1995 - August 2017 Decanter review

Charles Heidsieck is one of the most admired Champagne houses thanks to the unrivalled and consistently high quality of its wines. The current range is one of the most awarded collections of wines in the world. The intricacies of the champagnes' complex make-up have been perfected over the years by one of the most celebrated winemaking teams in Champagne - between three winemakers they have been awarded 'Sparkling Winemaker of the Year' at the International Wine Challenge fifteen times. This winemaking legacy, paired with the house's flamboyant history since its foundation in 1851 by the man who would become known as 'Champagne Charlie', makes it a unique offering from Champagne: a house with great, hand-crafted wines, heritage and proven quality.

The 1995 Blanc des Millénaires is a blend of Chardonnay from five crus: Cramant for complexity and ageability, Avize for verve and minerality, Oger for creaminess and weight, Mesnil-sur-Oger for balance and Vertus for floral freshness.

1995 was a fresh and balanced vintage, producing wines of excellent ageing potential. Generally good conditions throughout summer and autumn meant grapes were harvested in prime condition. It was the first universally declared vintage since 1990.

After fermentation, the wine is racked to separate the lees and then undergoes malolactic fermentation to soften the natural acidity. After blending the different crus, the wine is bottled and selected yeast added for the second fermentation. The bottles are placed in the cellar at a temperature of 10°C, and aged for at least 15 years before release.

Exceptional. This displays all the noble characteristics of mature Chardonnay and its incredible potential for ageing. Pale gold colour with pale green hues. The bouquet is balanced with a richness and distinct pastry aromas expressing full buttery notes, intense cinnamon and vanilla spice. Silky notes of candied apricots, quince and dried fruits, hazelnuts and almonds.

 

£114.30

Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve half bottle (1x37.5cl)

A radiant pale gold appearance with fine, persistent bubbles. Complex pastry shop aromas are followed by floral notes of lime-tree, violet and lilac, alongside blueberry and concentrated, soft dried apricots. The palate begins with a silky smooth sensation, developing into ripe fleshy apricot, melon and enticing rum pastry flavours, ending with delicate spice notes. A perfect balance of freshness and full bloom.

Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve NV (1x75cl)

Charles Heidsieck is one of the most admired Champagne houses thanks to the unrivalled and consistently high quality of its wines. The current range is one of the most awarded collections of wines in the world. The intricacies of the champagnes' complex make-up have been perfected over the years by one of the most celebrated winemaking teams in Champagne - between three winemakers they have been awarded 'Sparkling Winemaker of the Year' at the International Wine Challenge fifteen times. This winemaking legacy, paired with the house's flamboyant history since its foundation in 1851 by the man who would become known as 'Champagne Charlie', makes it a unique offering from Champagne: a house with great, hand-crafted wines, heritage and proven quality.

Charles Heidsieck have built exceptional relationships with the most experienced growers across the Champagne region, and can draw on a rich palette of crus. Precise selection of grapes takes place from 60 specific sites. Vineyards which are integral to producing grapes which build the house style are Oger for Chardonnay for its texture, floral notes and ageing ability, Ambonnay for Pinot Noir for its power, vinosity and fruit, and Verneuil for Pinot Meunier for its acidity, body and aromatics.

After the first fermentation, the wine is racked to separate the lees and then undergoes malolactic fermentation to soften the natural acidity. After blending, using 40% reserve wines which have an average age of 10 years, the cuvée is bottled and selected yeast added to begin the second fermentation. The bottles are placed in the cellars at a temperature of 10°C. In order to achieve the depth and complexity required by the house style, Charles Heidsieck age their Non-Vintage champagne for 5 years before disgorging, much longer than the legal requirement of 15 months.

The Brut Réserve NV is a radiant pale gold colour with fine, persistent bubbles. The nose is characterised by complex pastry aromas, with an opulent combination of ripe apricot, mango and greengages, dried fruits, pistachio and almond. The palate begins with a silky-smooth sensation, developing into ripe fleshy apricot, melon and enticing plum pastry notes and delicate spice. There is perfect balance of freshness and generosity.

£38.05

Cuvee Prestige Millesime, Champagne Gobillard 2011 (1x75cl)

the 2010 vintage was awarded 90 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their January 2018 edition panel review of Vintage Champagne (see blue link below).

Gobillard Cuvee Prestige Brut 2010 - January 2018 Decanter review

Hard to believe today, perhaps, but the 1930s were a tough time in Champagne. Only the most famous names were enjoying success and prosperity, while smaller producers and growers suffered in relative poverty. All of which makes Gervais Gobillard’s decision to branch out on his own, buying two hectares of vines in Hautvillers in 1933, particularly courageous. This is the true heart of Champagne. Thierry lives about 10 metres from the grave of Dom Pérignon, and decades of hard work have secured 26 hectares of vines, much of it Premier Cru. Grapes from carefully selected growers are also sourced, yielding a range of Champagnes that accentuate brightness, minerality and elegance over power and richness.

The grapes for this cuvée are selected from old vines with low production, which have the the best exposure, located mid-slope on the chalk. The base wines from this first plot selection, more concentrated, will then undergo a blind taste test which is very rigorous before it is included in the cuvee that will become the flagship of this Champagne House. 

This fine, vintage 'grower Champagne' is aged for at least four years before it is ready for release, the extended time on the lees creates complex tertiary aromas of dried fruits and hazelnuts that lead to an elegant palate of citrus blossom, greengage and honey. It is a connoisseur's wine, made with hand selected premier cru grapes, delivering the ultimate expression of premium Champagne, a style that will work perfectly as a distinguished food match or sophisticated aperitif.

£29.80

Devaux Cuvee Rosee NV (1x 75cl)

This wine is complex, with very fine bubbles,  a creamy mouth-feel, flavours of raspberry, strawberries, some hazelnut notes and a long finish.  
£33.55

Devaux D De Devaux Le Rose NV (1x 75cl)

This is the most delicate of the Devaux Rose Champagnes with the greater percentage of Chardonnay contributing a firm, elegant freshness to the palate. Fresh red fruit aromas from the Pinot Noir combine with a hint of hazelnut complexity which was encouraged by extended ageing on the lees when in bottle.
£46.85

Devaux D De Devaux Vintage 2008 (1x 75cl)

Awarded 90 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their January 2018 edition panel review of Vintage Champagne (see blue link below).

Devaux D Brut 2008 - January 2018 Decanter review

Devaux is a boutique Champagne brand located in Bar-sur-Seine in the southerly Aube region of Champagne, some 60km north of Burgundy. Thanks to this favourable southerly location, Devaux is a Pinot Noir and rosé specialist. The house was founded in 1846, and was family owned for generations. In 1987, in the absence of a family heir, ownership was passed to a united group of winegrower families, known today as the "Groupe Vinicole Champagne Devaux". Thanks to being owned by these growers, Devaux can boast total control over its grape supply which is a rarity in Champagne, a region where growers traditionally sell to the houses who control the brands.

The "D Collection" wines are Devaux's very best. The grapes come from highly select, sustainably farmed parcels across 35 hectares. The majority of the vineyards are situated in the Aube on Kimmeridgian limestone-clay soils. This continental location, on the slopes of the Côte des Bars, is important; it gives the Pinot Noir richness on the nose and a long finish, while retaining finesse. The Chardonnay in the blend is grown on the fine chalky soils of the Côte des Blancs, Vitry and Montgueux ("the Meursault of Champagne") to give liveliness and elegance.

2008 was initially a difficult year with widespread mildew. However, drier conditions in August and a fine, warm September helped to balance the ripening of the grapes. The 2008 wines have fresh acidity balanced by sound ripeness achieved towards the end of the season.

The wine was fermented in stainless steel, followed by partial malolactic fermentation to give extra suppleness. Following fermentation, the liqueur de tirage was added and the wine underwent a slow second fermentation in bottle, and extended ageing on its lees for seven to eight years. This resulted in a wine with a finer, more persistent mousse and greater potential for complexity. After disgorgement, the wine received a Brut dosage of around 6g/l and was aged for a further six to nine months before release.

Deep gold in colour. Complex and elegant aromas of white peaches and orange zest are followed by warm bready notes. The palate has a refreshing acidity and evolves with elegant citrus notes, finishing with a dried fruit character.

£55.90

Devaux Grande Reserve half bottle NV (1x 37.5cl)

The wine has a lovely Pinot Noir richness on the nose, with aromas of baked apples and vanilla. On the palate, it is full, rounded, and well balanced, with a lively, persistent finish.

£18.80

Gobillard Brut Baron De Marck NV (1x 75cl)

Much of the trick in buying Champagne liess in finding a good one without being taken for a ride pricewise, often by the draw of the big names. This Baron de Marck has a beautiful and pure fruit character as well as a hint of brioche, giving it a soft rounded flavour. This is a Champagne which is perfect as an aperitif or with canapés and nibbles or with lighter dishes. Great Champagne, great price.
