It’s National Wine Day! AND it’s Aperitif Hour 🙂
Very excited to be featuring this champagne! I tasted this in Fizz a couple of months ago, and fell in love. I posted it on my instagram story if any of you follow me you may remember this! This is a Blanc de Blancs which means it is 100% Chardonnay and it is made from all Premier Cru fruit.
I kept thinking about this bottle hours after tasting it! It had to be placed in the Fizz Club immediately.
When selecting what champagnes to import we only want the best most unique and boutique, interesting and tasty bottles. This one is no exception. We managed to scoop up the last bottles to be able to feature this incredible quality bottle made of Premier Cru grapes for our connoisseur club members! Email me @ email@example.com if you would like details on the club.
Champagne De Saint Gall is the flagship label of Union Champagne, an Avize-Based “new-generation” cooperative on a meteoric rise to stardom. Historically, most of the company’s wine has been sold to the region’s iconic houses to be blended into their top luxury brands, a practice which still accounts for a sizable proportion of Union Champagne’s business. As far as cooperatives go this is without question the wealthiest of its kind in the world let alone the wine trade, with a staggering 1200 acres of Grand Cru vineyards and 1300 hectares of Premier Cru vineyards. Most of the firm’s acreage lies in the sought-after Côte des Blancs zone, where they farm more Grand Cru acreage than all other Champagne houses combined. Now banded together, Union Champagne’s member/farmers can be considered the kings of ultra-premium Champagne, as no other firm in Champagne holds close to this amount of elite-level acreage. Union Champagne’s recent shift, a commitment to producing and selling finished wine on their own, is one of the most interesting thing to happen in Champagne. With pride (and a healthy dose of astonishment, really…) we offer you this new releases from De Saint Gall – Reference points in classical, terroir-driven Premier Cru and Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagne.

Tasting Notes: A true delight, this emblematic varietal champagne is wonderfully aromatic. With a lovely pale hue and a nose of white flowers and linden, it is delicate, mineral and superbly fresh on the palate. There is a richness that is adherent in both aroma and on the palate.
Go pop some champagne everyone!
