THIS IS THE ULTIMATE BOUTIQUE GIFT OR TREAT
Grower Champagne refers to Champagne that is all estate grown, not buying fruit from several sources like the major houses. The wine is made in accordance with the vintage conditions and the terroir as opposed to the house style, as the Grand Marque try to achieve with every release. Grand Marque houses spend millions on advertising and packaging. Grower producers design and label by hand. Grower Champagne is the ultimate artisan wine.
Henri Goutorbe Cuvee Tradition Grand Cru Ay is a small producer that also has a vine nursery. This is a stylish Champagne mixing freshness and complexity. Gremillet Brut Selection NV cuts a more traditional figure, a notoriously well reviewed and pointed Champagne. Vilmart & Cie Grande Reserve NV is often nicknamed Baby Krug, it has mastered the dark arts of barrel ageing in Champagne. It is rich and decadent but with great freshness and minerality. STSWine
