The skill of champagne production is in the blending of different still wines. This happens after the initial fermentation to create an exquisite blend during subsequent fermentation in the bottle.
Our champagnes are produced only by award winning growers who oversee the full production process from vine to blend to bottle. They keep back the best wine from each year’s harvest, sometimes using many years worth of reserve wines to create their own unique and exceptional blended champagnes.
One of our best selling champagnes and top award-winners, blending all three of the main Champagne grape varieties from different years, this champagne is fresh, fruity, mellow and great for entertaining guests. Flavours of red and black berries to begin, a kick of freshness in the middle, with a finish of dried apricots and honey. This champagne has just picked up another Gold medal in the Concours Général Agricole 2013.
An innovative creation from the Jean-Jacques Lamoureux house, combining a third of each grape variety taken from three different valleys. Then, aged for one year on oak to create an extremely interesting flavour for a champagne! With three distinct parts to the palate, the richness of aged Pinot Noir, a kick of freshness from the Chardonnay and then a wonderful floral finish rounded off with wonderful honey notes from the oak.
Named in loving tribute to the daughter of the house, Flora, Chevrolat's Cuvée Florale is an elegant, subtle champagne only produced from the finest harvests. A silky smooth blend (as always) of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in equal parts; a fresh nose of white fruits such as grapefruit and pear. Perfect as an aperitif. This is a limited edition Cuvée from one of our longest standing winegrowers.
Morel is an expert blender in the village of Les Riceys, Côtes des Bars. So, as you would expect, this is a finely blended champagne made up of 4 years of still wines, currently from 2004 to 2007. A dry champagne, with subtle fruity flavours. Great as an aperitif. It has consistently featured in the Guide Hachette and has received a citation again in 2012.
