Gatinois Grand Cru Champagne

$76.17

Champagne Gatinois is a small producer based in the Vallée de la Marne Grand Cru village of Aÿ. As far back as medieval times this village was famous for the quality of its vines. The local Pinot Noir clone, Petit Pinot d’Aÿ, has been cited as Champagne’s most noble. Before there was a sparkle to champagne, the reds of this village were lauded by French nobility. Gatinois farm 7.2 hectares of this exceptional terroir, selling about half of their fruit to to the Grande Marques, including Bollinger. 

In the words of the winery – “Like all of the blends, the Champagne GATINOIS Brut Tradition is a true reflection of the Aÿ terroir’s unique character. It is made from the “heart of the terroir” comprising 27 parcels on the 7 hectare family domaine… Predominantly Pinot Noir (80%) which brings richness, structure and a delicious character. The 20% of Chardonnay adds a feminine touch to the blend. There is also a significant proportion of reserve wines in the blend (30%). The champagne is aged “sur lattes” (horizontally on racks) in our cellars for 2 years before the yeasts are disgorged… A deep golden hue with coppery reflections indicates the richness of this blend. The nose opens with fresh notes of pears and lime blossom which give way to more intense, complex aromas and a characteristic Pinot Noir vinosity. Our Brut Tradition is fresh on entry to the palate with a good balance between fruit and finesse, a nice round structure and ripe fruit aromas which evolve into toasty notes.”
