The 2018 Balbiacus Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru is a new release from Champagne Delavenne that immediately captured our attention when tasting their impeccable range.  Made from 100% Pinot Noir this beautiful Champagne is pale golden in the glass and has a toasty nose of brioche, red fruits and mineral undertones.  The palate is rounded and soft from 4 years of bottle age and finishes with a wonderful freshness and vitality that simply begs for you to go back for another sip.  Mightily impressive.

Delavenne are an outstanding family run grower based in Bouzy making elegant, organic and vegan friendly Champagnes exclusively from their Grand Cru vineyards.  Minimal intervention and no malolactic fermentation means that the wines are clean and lively with a distinct purity.

2014 Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut, Champagne Germar Breton


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.

Champagne Blend

This is another beautful Champagne from the Levasseur stable and show what you can achieve by honing in on terroir and acute attention to detail in both the vineyard and winery.  80% Pinot Meunier, 15% Pinot Noir and 5% Chardonnay from the oldest plots in the vineyard, this wine has a healthy 30% Reserve wine in the blend.  Stunning value again (see Noir de Terroir), with quite exotic fruit content, a dry, mineral backbone and clean, crisp finish.  This wine spends 4 years ageing on it's lees which helps add to the roundness, depth and complexity and is way beyond the minimum required in the region.

NV Brut, Champagne Germar Breton, Aube, Half Bottle

Champagne Blend

This delightful, and rather smart, Champagne comes from a relatively young Champagne House that started in 2005.  Based in the southerly Aube region, they make approachable, terrific value wines from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.  This wonderful introduction to their range shows expressive brioche, green apple and quince fruit and has wonderfully balanced acidity.  Germar Breton are certainly a Champagne House to keep an eye.
