A pure, soft champagne with stylish character. Its fruit is fresh and appealing, bursting with apples and lemons. An uplifting note of freshly baked brioche adds complexity and class to an elegantly balanced palate.

    Baron de Marco Champagne

    Just got a bottle for my birthday. Beautiful, soft tasting. Exactly as described.


Winemaking

The grapes are pressed very gently and varieties are vinified separately off the skins to produce a low alcohol dry white wine which is racked and allowed to mature in tank until the spring. The lots are then blended together, using some reserve wines from earlier fine vintages. The resulting wine is then bottled with special "flocculent" yeasts and sugars and is refermented under a crown cork. There follows a period of ageing, when the yeasts flavour the wine and give it characteristic brioche aromas. Gobillard then opens the bottles ("dégorgement"), removing the yeast in the process, adds a dosage of grape sugars, inserts the characteristic mushroom cork, and ships the wine.

Our Expert Food Recommendation

A perfect match with oysters, followed by fresh smoked atlantic salmon. Now, you could finish off with a trible cream brie and lightly toasted fresh bread dressed in salted olive oil. Marvellous!
