Description

La Vigne aux Gamins is produced exclusively from a parcel of vines from Avize, which was planted more than 60 years ago and enjoys an outstanding situation in every way. The pure chalk subsoil gives the wine its finesse and the propensity to suffer from millerandage, but with its small, well aerated bunches, it can reach excellent levels of maturity.

Grape

A blend of Vintage Chardonnay – Blanc de Blancs – exclusively from Avize

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Vintage 2008: The mild and humid winter combined with an unstable spring with cool temperatures, abundant rain and a few strong frosts in April, leads to a late burst. However, the mildness of May allows the vines to catch up. Summer takes place under a mixed weather. The harvest begins between 15th and 25th September depending on areas. The weather is ideal, dry and sunny during the day, fresh at night, allowing an accumulation of sugars in the berries. The quality of grapes is exceptional and the balance between sugar and acidity of the grape must is perfect.

Ageing: 11 years in the Thiénot cellars at Rue des Moissons, Reims

Tasting Note

Golden yellow colour, dotted with light green hues. The nose, expressive and elegant, has notes of citrus fruits.   The full and generous palate is remarkably fresh and dominated by lemon aromas. Vegan.

James Suckling note

Medium-bodied with aromas of dried lemon zest, white peach, toasted brioche, walnut and chamomile. It’s bright and tangy with very fine bubbles. Focused, fresh, complex and elegant – just what you want from a blanc de blancs. Structured and rich. Drink or hold. 95 Points, April 2021

Jeb Dunnuck

A gorgeous Champagne from this estate, the 2008 Champagne La Vigne Aux Gamins is 100% Chardonnay from a single parcel in Avize that saw 100% malolactic fermentation and 2.4 grams of dosage. This light gold-hued beauty has a classic nose of stone fruits, candied lemons, honeyed minerality, and brioche. Playing in the medium-bodied end of the spectrum, it has a balanced, elegant style, good acidity, and a layered, lengthy finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. It should drink nicely for another 15 years from cold cellars. Maturity: 2021 – 2036. 95 Points, May 2021

Food Pairing

This wine is perfect as an aperitif and pairs well with lobster, sushi or tuna and salmon tartars.
