A new Champagne House to the UK but one that over the years has become a firm favourite on the continent. The three brothers, from the Frerejean-Taittinger family, have embarked on a mission to revive some of the oldest traditions of Champagne and notably the sabrage. As the lot tear about London lopping off bottle caps, with the help of our Wine Director Tom Harrow, the Champagne has caused quite a stir. Extra long maturation in their cellars for a minimum of 5 years on the lees, all premier cru vineyards, and all with a complexity to rival any 'branded' Champagne on the market.
What to drink with... Chèvre/Goats Cheese.The classic pairing for Chèvre and Goats Cheese is a French Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire, yet we’re adventurous souls here at Honest Grapes and we can find pleasure with Old World Riesling from Germany, New World Torrontés from Argentina, Semillon blended with Sauvignon Blanc, and of course a straight Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. For the very daring, a shot of Grappa works too.
If you have a platter of cheeses, pick the Riesling or a bottle of Champagne.
