Gaspard Brochet Pinot Noir Tome 1
An unbelievable first wine from Gaspard. Pure Pinot Noir from a single vineyard, Le Mont Benoit in Villers aux Noeuds. A beautifully perfumed front end with loads of rich, smokey fruit. Blackcurrant, dark cherry with such incredible chewy engagement. The mid palate is incredibly concentrated with a lovely smooth feel to it and links nicely to the sugar on the front end. There is a delicate play of prune on the finish that lifts to reveal more concentration and complexity right at the end. What a wine! What a debut!
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.
