Gremillet Gran Cru NV Champagne
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.
The Grand Cru values a particular terroir (100% Cramant) where Champagne Gremillet select the grapes. Proud of the network of winemaker-partners that it has been able to build over the last 10 years, it benefits in addition to its 48 hectares in the Côte des Bar, a supply of quality grapes that is highlighted in this Grand Cru.
The nose is a delicate rapture with a pleasant vanilla biscuit aroma. On the palate it captivates the whole mouth, is ample, well-structured and perfectly balanced, between smoothness, sweetness and vivacity.
