Gaspard Brochet Ane Tome I
Created in homage to his grandfather who first created a blend of 50/50 Pinot Noir/Chardonnay back in 1944, this wine is everything you expect and want from the idea of a blend of these two noble grapes. Both rich and warm with lovely vertical Chardonnay driven freshness, it never loses the lateral tension and texture which lifts it even above the two individual expressions of the grapes. This is as good a blend as you could possibly imagine.
Gaspard Brochet exploded onto the Champagne scene with his first release in 2020 and continues to excite and surprise us with every wine since. Gaspard comes from a long line of Brochet families in the area and has taken over the family business that is 'Vincent Brochet' – a renowned producer in the area. Along with the existing lines, Gaspard has gone about producing his own wines that define him. His first release – a pure Pinot Noir from the vineyard of Le Mont Benoit, vinified in oak – was a a triumph of a first attempt and everything since has more than lived up to the hype.
