"Light but highly enjoyable; crisp, clean and bright with lemon sherbet flavours and an attractive mousse."
Simon Field MW, Andy Howard MW, David Vareille
"A custard cream with soft biscuit nose. Cooked savoury notes with honey on the palate, yeasty depth with freshness."

About the Producer
The vineyards, situated in the southern reaches of Troyes, achieve greater ripeness which leads to richer fruit and classic baked biscuit flavours mixed with characteristic toasty, yeast overtones. Only the first, lightest pressings are used, as is usual for fine Champagne. Classic slow second fermentation in bottle is followed by maturation on its lees for two and a half years before being disgorged. All Gremillet Champagnes undergo malolactic fermentation. This family owned and run Champagne house is HVE 3 certified, and as much as possible it restricts its use of chemicals in the vineyards. One of its cuvées is certified organic by ECOCERT and hopefully this is the start of a bigger process.

On a day when life was disappointing, I went to Aitken's to browse something nice: good wine. I went to the sparkling (wine) section, and grabbed a bottle of sparkling rose', for when life will be less disappointing. Something to look forward to. To celebrate with. The music in the background was playing a song of Beirut (a group I like very much), and I saw this little bottle of champagne. I thought, hell yes. This is for me, now. Went home, took the champagne coupe, poured the champagne (after having left it in the fridge for a while), and started savoring it. Impressed by the taste! The champagne is there, and at a price that allows to forget about the price. I will still buy Perrier-Jouet, Dom Perignon, or Veuve, but I have an addition to my list. Especially, for random, annoying days, when I would have just waited for a day to celebrate something, and God knows when that day is. May all this pain be champagne!
