What's included in this Bundle -
Dhondt-Grellet Dans un Premier Temps Brut Champagne
To say Adrien Dhondt is a young rising star from the Côte des Blancs might be an understatement as his wines have recently been sought after by the world's best restaurants and drunk by sommeliers on their day off. Since 1986, Adrien and his sister, Alice, have been taking their family estate to a new high with biodynamic viticulture and high quality winemaking. This Champagne is a classic Champenois blend of 50% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier, from their Grand and Premier Cru plots in Cramant, Chouilly and Cuis. It is also worthwhile to note that the base wine is from 2015, with 30% reserve wines from their family solera, started since 1986.
Charles Dufour Bulles de Comptoir #9 “Tradition”
One of the most important figures for organic production in Champagne, Charles Dufour is a true artist. Based in the Côte des Bar in the village of Landreville where he makes most of his wines, he started producing high quality Champagne in 2006, and in 4 years completed full conversion to be certified organic. The Bulles de Comptoir #9 is an assembly of 60% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay with 10% Pinot Blanc from 2018 plus reserve wines. It spent 9 months in barrels, plus 3 months in stainless steel, and another 15 months in bottle on its lees. With less than 4g residual sugar, it features slight oxidation, nice minerality and a floral touch, definitely a Champagne for the discerning palate.
Savart L'Ouverture Brut Champagne Premier Cru
Savart, one of the original Champagne rockstar producer, believes in the mantra “small is beautiful”. With only 4 hectares of land, he’s making some of the world’s most sought after bubbles and the L’Overture is no exception. Made entirely of Pinot Noir with 40% of the blend being reserve wines, the soft acidity lifts your palate while the long and voluptuous finish makes this a delicious drink for any time of the day.
