Everyone knows Champagne’s big names, but what about the region’s smaller producers? These guys are making finely-tuned, precisely-made representations of their little patches of Champenois terroir. These are the folk that we get excited about, and frankly we think that you ought to get in on the act.
Grower Champagne Case includes:
Jacques Lassaigne Les Vignes de Montgueux Blanc de Blancs NV
From a vineyard known as the little Montrachet, this is Blanc de Blanc (Chardonnay only) champagne exactly as it ought to be. Brimming with vineous-ness this is a champagne to take your time over.
Cédric Bouchard Roses de Jeanne Blanc de Noirs NV
From Troyes, the land of andouillette and Pinot Noir, Cedric Bouchard is a biodynamic winemaker who coaxes extreme beauty out of his grapes. This is complex, rich, savoury and begging for some roast goose.
Larmandier-Bernier Vieille Vignes de Levant 2007
This comes from one of the acknowledged stars of the new Champagne firmament. A single-vineyard champagne that is both muscular and elegant with incredible length and complexity.
