Bernard Gaucher Champagne Magnum 2008
Nothing says "celebration" like a magnum of Champagne! This delightful Estate Grower Champagne from Bernard Gaucher will add sparkle to any occasion. The Gaucher vineyards are located in Arconville, a small village in the Cote des Bar region, located in the Aube department at the southern end of Champagne. This is a true Estate Grower Champagne, with several generations of winemaking in the tradition of the appellation. Of late, there has been an exciting emergence of artisanal, terroir-driven Champagne being produced in the Cote des Bar, and this 2008 Brut Prestige is a perfect example of the Estate Grower phenomenon. Cote des Bar wines are differentiated from their northern counterparts by the slightly warmer climate, along with the presence of Kimmeridgian soils (also found in Chablis), a mixture of chalk and clay which generally yields wines of more generous fruit and softer textures.
Blend: 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 20% Meunier
