Gremillet Champagne Premier Cru Brut
The Gremillet estate was founded by Jean-Michel Gremillet in 1979 when he inherited a plot of vines from his mother, Lulu. Today, the house possesses over 40 hectares of vineyards and is situated in a small village 45 kilometres from Troyes - the historic capital of Champagne - and 180 kilometres south of Reims. The vines lie on steep, sun-drenched hillsides in Kimmeridgian clay-limestone soils. Pinot Noir is king here, and constitutes around 94% of Gremillet’s plantings, with the remainder dedicated to Chardonnay, ideal for creating a classic, baked biscuit, rich, fruit-flavoured Champagne.
Very beautiful pale yellow gold colour with soft silver reflections. Brilliant, luminous and clear. Thin bead, creamy foam, very fine and very delicate bubbles.
The nose invites us to enter an almost monastic esoteric universe, of flowers, spices and precious woods. You have to smell it without violence to understand all its subtleties.
The well-structured palate with a fine balance between liveliness and softness is immediately seductive. Liquorice, vanilla, bakery and woody notes combine in the finish to make us participate in a moment of pure happiness.
