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 t... Read More »

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(50% chardonnay, 40% pinot meunier and 10% pinot noir, all certified organic by Agriculture Biologique): Light gold. Fresh apple and lemon aromas and flavors are complemented by subtle floral and honey nuances. Light-bodied and clean, with good lift and finishing cut. In an understated, relatively straightforward style that's quite easy to drink." (12/2012) Wine Enthusiast: "Very fruity Champagne, well balanced with ripe pear and golden plum flavors, laced with kiwi. It has refreshing acidity, giving a bright, tight texture and a soft finish."

This fantastic Champagne comes from the villages of Pierry and Moussy in the sud-Epernay sub-region of Champagne.

It is one of the most balanced Champagnes in our stock, with an effortless quality that is almost impossible to describe or resist. It has great toast and spiced apple aromas and flavors and a crisp dry finish. It is... Read More »
This gem of a blanc de blancs is in fact a single-vineyard wine from the "Les Brousses" parcel in the Premier Cru village of Pierry, immediately to the south of Epernay. The vineyard is a massal selection (not made from cloned vines) that was planted in 1964. It is composed of the 2006 and 2007 vintages and given full barrel fermentation in old oak. Like many of the talented Mr. Bruno "the mayor" Michel's Champagnes, this wine manages to combine friendly breadth and creamy yuminess with top notch minerality and length... What a wine!

This fantastic Champagne comes from the villages of Pierry and Moussy in the sud-Epernay subregion of Champagne. Bruno Michel has been organic since 1999 and five of his 37.5 acres are farmed biodynamically. This vintage Brut is 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier, and it offers stupendous balance between simple enjoyment/drinkability and more intellectual geeked-out notes of wet stone and austere minerality.
This fantastic Champagne comes from the villages of Pierry and Moussy in the sud-Epernay sub-region of Champagne. Bruno Michel has been organic since 1999 and five of his 37.5 acres are farmed biodynamically. A saignée rosé, this elegant bubbly was made by a very short cuvaison of Pinot Meunier. Spicy and full-bodied, it is a great example of a sparkling wine that can be enjoyed with dinner, even red meat!
This is a fantastic value as a direct import. This very dry, concentrated Champagne is composed of half and half Meunier and Chardonnay from vines of over 40 years old. Grown entirely organically, and finished with just 2 grams per liter of dosage, it will surprise you with its bread dough nose and nougat like richness. Wines from 2006 and 2007 were used in this blend. This is a great aperitif, and a natural match for sushi! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)
