Le Gallais La Grande Vinge Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

SKU #1425030

This small, all estate grown Champagne is sourced from only one vineyard, the Clos Boursault, an ancient walled vineyard just west of Epernay on the Marne. The Le Gallais La Grande Vinge Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne is all Chardonnay from the east facing vines in the clos. This is aged five years on the lees and has super clean Meyer lemon flavors and a direct and refreshing finish. This would be perfect with all kinds of shellfish. Sadly only 36 bottles were available for the USA! -Gary Westby K&L

Wow. New Direct Import grower-producer Le Gallais is an exciting addition to our Champagne repertoire. The vines for the Blanc de blancs are grown within a clos on east-facing slopes, perfect for providing the bright morning sun that Chardonnay needs. This release – all sourced from 2013 but not labeled as vintage – is both elegant and racy, with lemon fruit and a welcome kick to the clean finish. And aged five years on the lees! Winemaker Charlotte Le Gallais has a deft hand at creating Champagnes that highlight simplicity while maintaining incredible complexity.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. 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.
