Didier Gallimard owns 10 hectares of prime vineyards on the steep slopes around Les Riceys in the southern Aube. Didier’s son Arnaud has joined him, becoming the seventh generation, and the long-term future is now secure. Their vines’ average age is over 30 years and the dramatically sloping vineyards, which are of chalk and Kimmeridgian limestone, are planted mainly to Pinot Noir and just a little Chardonnay. Their wines are full and rich and offer enticing aromas and flavours of summer fruits.
The Cuvee de Reserve is extremely approachable and one of our best selling Champagnes. Exuberant, rounded and almost dangerously easy drinking, it’s a widely appealing style that keeps customers coming back for more again and again.

nv petite doseur rose extra dry, champagne gosset, ay
This cuvée is salmon-pink in colour. It has a beautiful effervescence with a string of fine bubbles. On the nose, flavours of ripe strawberry followed by raspberry. On the finish and once the wine has warmed up slightly, notes of quince, blood orange and verbena are revealed. The well-balanced palate is dominated by notes of strawberry, raspberry but also pink grapefruit and lemon. The extra dry classification means that there is actually some sweetness to this beautiful cuvee from Gosset, making a great match to desserts which aren't overly sweet as well as afternoon tea.

nv brut reserve, champagne taittinger, reims
The Taittinger Brut Réserve is renowned for its golden yellow colour with a consistent, fine, lingering mousse. The nose is light and delicate with hints of fruits and brioche. The palate is lean, but has considerable depth and elegance with a long fresh finish. There is no specific drinking occasion for the Brut Réserve. Its elegance and lightness give it the flexibility to be the Champagne for the moment but it is always an excellent aperitif.
