Back by popular demand, this year’s Christmas case includes 2 bottles of Decanter bronze medal winning Champagne from small organic producer Pierre Brigandat et Fils. The Brigandat vineyard grow all their own grapes and farm organically on the south facing hillsides in the village of Channes, these are the southern-most vineyards in Champagne.
The Brut tradition is light yellow with a mature nose with creamy, lemony aromas and an almond note. A full palate with a refined texture the milky, lemony aromas reoccur, capped off with a sensation of crispness.
Perfect as an aperitif, this Champagne also complements almost any kind of meal excluding heavy meat dishes and desserts. Fortunately we have just the thing to pair with your Christmas pudding – a bottle (50cl) of our 2015 Sweet!
This 100% sauvignon blanc sweet wine has a rich golden colour. On the nose, the first impression is citrus followed by honey and caramel. On the palate, an unctuous sweetness is balanced by a fresh acidity, followed by flavours of honey, apricot and caramel. A long smooth finish follows. Perfect for a rich dessert or mature hard or soft cheese.
With only 134 bottles made they have all been bottled, corked, labelled and capsuled by hand so please forgive us for any wonky labels or creased capsules! Also due to the tiny quantities the wine is only available in this mixed case. Please see below for the feature from Paul about how we grow, pick and make this unique style of wine.

2 x Champagne Brut Tradition : 3 x 2012 Prestige : 3 x 2014 Classique : 2 x 2015 Blanc Sec Exceptionnel : 1 x 2016 Rose : 1 x 2015 Sweet
