Showing fine mousse in the glass and fresh floral aromas mixed with characteristic toasty yeast overtones, balanced by richer fruit and classic baked biscuit flavours, with a crisp citrus finish.
Billecart Salmon Nicolas Francois 2002 A hint of struck flint reduction makes way for the icy brightness of grapefruit zest, lemon, white peach, then the warmth of figs, and later, yellow summer fruits. A decade in the cellar has set down layers of toast and nuts, even wood spice. Refreshing acidity takes time to uncoil, and minerality rises slowly, super fine, confident and taut, surging on the finish in a cascade of chalk that lingers, undeterred, for minutes.
Like all of the domaine’s blends, the Champagne GATINOIS Brut Rosé respects and reflects the unique character of the Aÿ terroir. It is made from the “heart of the terroir” comprising 27 parcels on the 7 hectare family domaine and is a true reflection of its powerful and elegant terroir.
This subtle and discreet rosé blend is produced from a delicate, secret combination of:
– The traditional blend of our white base wines, consisting of predominantly Pinot Noir and a touch of Chardonnay
– A red wine from “Coteaux Champenois”, produced by Gatinois in small quantities and only in very sunny years. It is made from “petits Pinots d’Aÿ” grown on the Domaine’s two oldest parcels, planted in 1954.
During the blending process, we aim to combine the freshness and festivity of a fine Champagne with the richness, elegance and structure brought by the red wine.
Intense hue with salmon-coloured highlights. Our Grand Cru Brut Rosé displays the characteristic elegant style of Gatinois Champagnes. The nose and palate offer up a subtle bouquet of red fruit (strawberries, blackberries, cherries) and a dash of spice which evolves into lingering notes of morello cherries on the rich finish. The dosage remains discreet at 6g/l.
A pleasurable champagne, a champagne with heart, characterised by elegance and warmth, ideal for an impromptu aperitif with friends and perfect for gift giving. It is also excellent with food, try it paired with seared Atlantic salmon, pink on the bones, or with desserts such as a red fruit gaspacho.
Laurent Perrier is pioneer the Brut Nature category, a wine with no added sugar.
Laurent Perrier Ultra Brut expresses the quintessential character of champagne and was known as a “Great Wine without sugar”.
Launched in 1981, Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut is a true illustration of the House’s know-how.
Blending and Wine Making:
45% Pinot Noir
One or two reserve wines from a complementary year are blended in Laurent Perrier Ultra Brut with around 15 cru wines used in the composition.
Laurent Perrier Ultra Brut has zero dosage – the bunches of grapes are rigorously selected to ensure that only grapes with high sugar levels and low acidity are retained. These conditions are necessary to create a finished champagne that has the required balance without any dosage.
Ideally this Champagne should be aged for a minimum of 6 years.
Very pale, crystal-bright in colour.

Benoît Lahaye’s Brut Nature highlights his chalk-streaked terroir surrounding the Grand Cru village of Bouzy. This Champagne is 90% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay, 80% from Bouzy and 20% from Ambonnay, all grown on brown chalk; the vines are an average of 35-years-old. Lahaye’s Brut Nature is a fine example of the clarity one can achieve in non-dosage Champagne. Raspberries align with white rocks making this a fine selection for rich seafood dishes, such as lobster bisque.

The Chardonnays from the Cote des Blancs: Choilly, Avize, Oger and Vertus, in all their diversity, add a touch of finesse. On the palate, the attack is ample, the body generous and complex and the finale the epitome of finesse and freshness.
Gosset where originally based in Aÿ before moving to their current home in Epernay. It makes sense that some of their best parcels are sourced from the Grand Cru of Aÿ along with Ambonnay, Verzy, Chigny-les-Roses and Tauxières.
Gosset Blanc de Noirs N.V – mineral, smoke, leather, cherries, kirsch and coconut making their presence. There is an abundance of minerality all flowing from the Grand Cru terroirs all holding their poise with great acidity, vibrant freshness (no malo) and definitive length.

Intense salmon pink.
Displays red berry-fruit aromas of ripe redcurrants, cherries, wild strawberries, giving way to notes of plum.
A fresh and full style of champagne with a fine finish and notes of peach and apricot.
This cuvée has all the hallmark Chardonnay finesse (35%-40%), rounded out by the ripeness of the Pinot Meunier (25-30%) and the structure of the Pinot Noir, of which 15%-18% is vinified as red wine. The addition of Pinot Noir red wine to the blend (15-18%) and a light dosage of 10g/L result in a very complete, balanced champagne.
Bright, limpid with a rim of fine, creamy bubbles. Just like a breath of fresh air, the nose is distinctly delicate with aromas of crisp blossoms. It is reminiscent of abeautiful summer morning and garden scents. Aromas of dried fruits, hazelnut and almond with fine, herbaceous notes.
The taste is rich and luscious with a perfect balance between vivacity and mellowness. The Brut Zéro Dosage is ideal for a splendid wedding. With such a voluptuous finish how could it be anything less than Noble?
The NV Premier Cru Extra Brut Mi-Pentes is a selection of parcels that are located on the mid-slopes around the village of Écueil. It’s pure Pinot Noir that is mostly (70%) from the 2014 vintage, complemented by 30% from the 2013 vintage, and 20% of the cuvée was fermented in oak. The wine offers a pure and fruity yet still lean and rather reductive bouquet. On the palate, this is a very fresh, pure, mineral and tensioned Pinot Noir with good grip and lingering salinity and structure. Still very young, this should benefit from further bottle aging. Disgorged in July 2017 with three grams of dosage.
The Vauversin family have been making wine in the Grand Cru village of Oger since 1640.
Laurent Vauversin is the current custodian, having recently taken over the family business from his father Bruno.

The 3ha vineyard in Oger sits on the chalky Côte des Blancs escarpment South of Epernay, an area renowned for its impressive Chardonnay Champagnes. The Laurent’s attitude and ethos towards wine making is clear; be less intrusive, simpler and allow the full flavour and incredible subtlety of the Chardonnay grape assert itself. This ethos is typified in the vineyard’s ongoing organic conversion effort.
