Germar Breton are a relatively young Champagne House that started in 2005. Based in the southerly Aube region, they make approachable, terrific value wines solely from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, eschewing the use of Pinot Meunier as they believe that it brings a harshness ot the final wine.
The 2014 vintage is 100% Chardonnay and spends 6 years on it’s lees and has a mere 3 grams per litre dosage, putting it firmly in the Extra Brut category. As with all their wines, this is amazing value and drinks beautfully. The wonderful balance of richness and crisp, fresh acidity keeps one coming back for glass after glass.

nv gosset grande reserve, ay, half bottle
This cuvée has a bright and golden colour. The nose is dominated by the freshness and the fruit. The Chardonnay brings finesse sustained by notes of yellow fruits such as peach and Mirabelle plum. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and generous. The Pinot Noir of Ay gives its structure. Hawthorn and white flowers merge naturally. Acidity is expressed by citrus fruits.

nv blanc de blancs, champagne henriot, reims
The Blanc de Blancs is our favourite wine in the Henriot stable by a long shot. With a high proportion of reserve wines included and over 2/3rds of the cuvee coming from either Grand or Premier Cru vineyards it is little wonder that we enjoy it so much!
