Soft on the palate it is led by powerful citrussy flavours, lemon zest and a hint of honeydew melon. This 100% Chardonnay is refreshing and elegant with a lingering finish.

Champagne Bernard Remy is situated in the small town of Allemant, nestled on the edge of the Côte des Blancs which is famed for its white grape vineyards. With 11 hectares of vines located throughout the Champagne region, this family-run Champagne House has at its disposal an exceptionally vast range of crus, terroirs and grape varieties, from which they produce fine, elegant and subtle Champagnes. In 1968, Bernard Remy bought his first vines in the village and since then they have gone from strength to strength. His son Rudy, who started working for the family business in 1996, took over the reins in 2008 under the watchful eye of Bernard. After much domestic success they are branching out into international markets and we are delighted to add these stylish, award-winning Champagnes to our portfolio.

The vineyards sit on undulating land over white calcareous soils. These famous chalky soils are finely structured and more porous than other soil types, with the looser structure enabling the absorption of minerals by the vine, while also providing excellent drainage.

Made according to the traditional method, with the secondary fermentation taking place in the bottle, this Champagne has spent a minimum of three years ageing on its fine lees. The dosage is 10 grams per litre.

Tasting Notes:

Lively, crisp and intense with a delicate and persistent mousse. Soft on the palate it is led by powerful citrussy flavours, lemon zest and a hint of honeydew melon. This 100% Chardonnay is refreshing and elegant with a long finish.
