Tribaut-Schloesser (Romery/Vallee de la Marne)

Our recent trawl around Champagne was long and gruelling. The hard work at the chalk face is etched in our faces (and waistlines). After the daily agony of tasting Champagne from dawn until well after dusk comes the pleasure of returning with a full vanload of bubbly beauties.
UK Premiere of this delicious, utterly classic, Non-Vintage Brut Champagne from Tribaut-Schloesser, a small family domaine in the small village of Romery tucked in a hollow at the Epernay end of the Marne valley. Utterly classic in the sense that it’s a blend of all three varietals: 40% Pinot Noir from parcels in the Montagne de Reims, 30% Chardonnay from the Cote des Blancs and 30% Pinot Meunier from their own village in the Vallee de la Marne. Classic too as it’s a blend of multiple vintages; 2007, 2006 with some older, Reserve wines. We were struck by the sensory journey this wine takes you on. A journey to the centre of Champagne, as it were. Do not miss their top-of-the-range Cuvee l’Authentique, a brilliant Champagne made from their best parcels, the old fashioned way with long bottle aging under cork rather than crown.
