Artisan Champagne Introduction
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.
An incredible introduction to Côte des Blancs Chardonnay – clean, chalky with a nice vertical entrance. The palate is soft with tart lemon and a hint of the exotic; fresh cut grass, chalk, cuttlefish and a fascinating note of green chartreuse note! The next day you really feel that green apple, grass and always an underlying layer of chalk.
If you’ve never tried a pure Meunier this is a great introduction to the lesser known of the three noble grapes. Made from a solera system by a young and exciting winemaker in the village of Vandieres in the Marne Valley, the palate is rich and ripe with nutty notes and bright primary fruits.
In contrast to its less than elegant sounding name, the Grand Cru village of Bouzy is famed for wines of incredible quality and finesse and this cuvée from Paul Clouet is a wonderful way to get acquainted. A proud and rich pure Pinot Noir with a chewy palate of black fruits, fresh salinity and lovely balance of sugar.
