Artisan Champagne Introduction
Individually purchased: £150
The world of Champagne can be a complex and imposing place, so here at Sip Champagnes we like to make things easy.
If this is your first foray into the world of artisan Champagne then look no further than this non-vintage exploration three-pack! Featuring the three main grapes of Champagne – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – from three classic regions, it’s the ideal introduction to Champagne’s rich variety, and an unmissable opportunity to discover where your tastes lie.
Kicking things off, it's a classic Grand Cru Côte des Blancs Chardonnay. It's bursting with citrus, green apple and, underneath it all, that wonderful fresh, chalky background.
A fabulous introduction to the least well known of the three noble grapes from one of the true masters of this varietal based in the heart of the Marne Valley. There's a really big mouth feel and the palate is full of white fruits and a pleasant, rich stewed fruit note, that is archetypal Meunier.
Rounding off this trio is a pure Pinot Noir from the southerly Aube region. This is a great example of the richer style of Champagne that can be achieved here with plenty of dark fruit and some nice toasty elements.
