Baron Fuente "Galipettes" Brut Champagne

SKU #1038752

This is Champagne Baron Fuente's little estate fillet, their biodynamic Galipettes. Farmed entirely organically, this is both Ecocert and Demeter certified. Like the rest of the Baron Fuente Champagnes, this wine gets plenty of time on the lees: four years. It is composed of 20% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir and 70% Meunier, entirely from their estate. The nose reminds me of pain-au-chocolate, lots of buttery croissant and just a hint of cocoa. It is rich and fairly full-bodied; with a great high quality, savory cherry flavor from the top-notch Meunier in the blend. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

This 100% organic Champagne is a knockout and would be a bargain at twice the price. A super expressive nose of wedding cake and buttered toast explodes from this sparkler and with air begins to hint at dark fruit. The mid-palate is rich, ripe and frothy showcasing more dark fruit and ends with mineral drive on the long, intense finish.

My personal favorite of the Baron Fuente offerings at a recent Champagne tasting. Sourced from the estates organically farmed vineyards. I found this to be the most mineral intensive of the bottlings. A crisper, more chalky wine almost like it was more Chardonnay dominant (though I believe it is equal parts Chard, Pinot Noir and Meunier). Aromas and flavors of crunchy orchard fruit, dry bread, cracked wheat, chalk and flint. A nice savory, nutty component too. Dry and mouthwatering. Great value for Champagne of this quality.

All estate fruit and Biodynamic, this creamy beauty spends 4 years on the lees and the bottle we tried showed soft texture with almost dulce de leche qualities and a bright, orangey mid-palate. Bargain-priced and easy drinking, this should become a go-to for the organic set.

Baron Fuente has long been one of our best values in Champagne--with their entry-level bottling coming in at a mere $23.99 it is hard to beat. However, after tasting the Galipettes today, I happily realized that they have some serious offerings in their lineup. This bottling is all estate fruit and completely organic, something that few negociants offer, the nose is dripping with wild cherry, fragrant cassis and a touch of chalk. The wine flows out of the glass with a mineral and red-fruited palate, red fruits abound, cherry, currant, and just a hint of exotic spice lingering in the back. Clean and fresh on the finish, this really impressed upon tasting.

Wonderful all-estate fruit with a 1/3 blend of each of Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Biodynamic. Rich with cherry fruit, cocoa and bread dough accents. Crisp at the back of the palate. An upcoming feature Champagne for February!

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
