2003 Daniel Ginsburg "Cuvée Sous Bois" Brut Champagne (Previously $50)

SKU #1150700

This Champagne is entirely barrel fermented in old 225 liter casks without malolactic fermentation and is composed of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay. Only grand and premier cru fruit was used, with most of the grapes coming from the Grand Cru of Ay. The 2003 Daniel Ginsburg "Cuvée Sous Bois" Brut Champagne came from a very hot vintage in Champagne- the earliest harvest since 1852. This is big, round, supple Champagne with toasty generosity to spare. Like the folks at Bollinger, Dan Ginsburg felt the 2003 was vintage worthy in Ay, but only because of their acidity preserving policy of not allowing the wines to go through malolactic.- Gary Westby, K&L

To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- 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.
