Blanc de Blancs Brut 'Les Courbes de Marguerite', G. Richomme, Champagne, France NV
Regular price £49.40
This cuvée is formed with fruit from a single plot of older vines, in honour of Marguerite, Florence and Christophe’s mother. 80% is from the 2019 harvest with the remainder coming from 2017/2018 reserve wines. The nose is dominated by notes of butter, light hints of hazelnut and fresh meringue before a complex palate. Hints of cocoa and gingerbread reveal a certain maturity, underpinned by the characteristic freshness that is emblematic of all Richomme’s wines.Sparkling Chardonnay 12%
Just southeast of the Côte des Blancs, the Côte de Sézanne is known for the production of Chardonnay-led Champagnes that display richness, finesse and elegance. The third generation of the Richomme family to be in charge, siblings Florence and Christophe follow a plot-by-plot approach across their 11-hectare estate, vinifying each block of vines separately in order for their wines to express their natural terroir in the best way possible. Their Champagne provides many things that can be hard to find in the region – artisan craftmanship, expression of terroir and value for money.
