BACKGROUND

The Gremillet family have been winegrowers since the 18th century. In 1979, Jean-Michel Gremillet decided to create the family’s own Champagne. His first endeavors were in the export market, with a particular focus on the diplomatic network: a sector which continues to show us its trust, with no fewer than 50 French Embassies and Consulates around the world choosing Gremillet for their prestigious receptions.

Jean-Michel’s dream is now a reality, as both his children, Jean-Christophe and Anne, have joined the company with their respective spouses Karine and Stephane. The family is incredibly proud of their accomplishments and are working hard together to continue the success of the venture.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

Blending of four to five vintages, 20% of reserve wine. Only the cuvee (first press) enter into the composition of this champagne. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in stainless steel temperature controlled tanks. Brut dosage at 9 g/l with a “liqueur d’expédition” coming from finished bottles of Champagne. The champagne is aged a minimum of 30 months.

TASTING NOTES

Sublime pale golden color with delicate greenish glints. Handsome, fine, long-lasting creamy bubbles, with a regular slow flow. The nose is a bouquet of flowers in full bloom that invites to a second breath, with white hawthorn and honeysuckle blossoms, rose hips, followed by multicolored roses and peonies further revealing fresh hints of citrus fruit and citronella. Upon airing it opens slowly to reveal notes of bread, caramel and of candied fruit. On the palate floral magic, perfect harmony between the wine and its “liqueur”. Its long, fragrant finish underlines its wonderful charm. T

to be served with white oven baked fish or poached Turbot with a “sauce hollandaise”.
