The Gremillet estate comprises of 33 hectares of vineyards and is situated in a small village 45 kilometers from Troyes, the historic capital of Champagne, 180 kilometers south of Paris. The vines are on steep, sun-drenched hillsides, ideal for creating a classic baked biscuit, rich fruit Champagne. The vineyards, situated in the southern reaches of Troyes achieve greater ripeness which leads to a richer fruit and classic baked biscuit flavours mixed with characteristic toasty yeast overtones. Only the first, lightest pressings are used, as is usual for fine Champagne. Classic slow second fermentation in bottle followed by maturing on the lees for at least 18 months before being disgorged and released for sale. This champagne shows fine mousse in the glass and fresh floral aromas mixed with characteristic sweet, doughy overtones, which are balanced by richer fruit, peach skin characters and classic baked biscuit flavours with a crisp citrus finish.
