This wine, made from 90% black grapes from across the entire Champagne region, is a perfect representation of its origins. A model non-vintage Brut, emblematic of the Gardet House, with the savoir-faire to preserve its style and maintain the mark left by the history of the house.
Seductive aromas of wild red berry fruits with white chocolate, brioche and almond. Lively berry fruits are fused with nutty, honeyed, caramel Champagne tastes. Its generous Champagne flavours are captured in fine bubbles delivering a zesty, deeply refreshing and mellow finish.
Gardet was established in 1895 by Charles Gardet in Chigny-Les-Roses, in the heart of the Montagne de Reims. It was sold to the Prieux family in 2007. The Prieuxs have invested in the business, but wisely retained the features of the style of wine made over the years, only slightly refining it to be a little more forward-drinking with more fruit freshness and balance. The house owns around 7 ha of premier cru vineyards around their home villages of Chigny-Les-Roses, Luds and Rilly la Montage. The long tirage time and the use of a high proportion of reserve wine has marked the house style, and in fact is a distinguishing feature of Champagne Gardet.
