Champagne De Saint-Gall Launches in Marks & Spencer
14th August 2023
Historic French producer Champagne De Saint-Gall has arrived at Marks & Spencer. Now available to purchase – the brand’s Tradition Premier Cru and Premier Cru Rosé showcasing the Chardonnay-dominant style and complexity the brand is known for.
Champagne De Saint-Gall is the product of a historic winemaking initiative. Founded in 1966, Union Champagne is a 15-strong network of growing cooperatives that specialise in Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards across the region, guaranteeing Champagne De Saint-Gall grapes of the highest level of quality from iconic vineyards with distinctive terroirs.
Stylistically, Champagne De Saint-Gall is marked by a passion for the Chardonnay grape, which itself makes up more than half of Union Champagne’s output and is usually the key grape in the white and rosé cuvées.
Overseen by cellar master Cédric Jacopin, the range of Blanc de Blancs cuvées is of exceptional quality. Chardonnay is the dominant grape in both Tradition Premier Cru and Premier Cru Rosé, lending each characteristic citrus notes and minerality, while the Pinot Noir grapes that make up the rest of these blends imbue them with structure and a rounded character.
Champagne De Saint-Gall has partnered with Marks & Spencer, seeing its Tradition Premier Cru and Premier Cru Rosé cuvées as part of the M&S Collection this summer. The M&S Collection Tradition Premier Cru and Premier Cru Rosé by Champagne De Saint-Gall is now available from Marks & Spencer stores nationwide for an RRP of £28 and £30 respectively.
The move comes as British drinkers continue to expand their interest in Champagne, with an increase in sales of 105% in 2022 compared to 2021. Wine drinkers in the UK are continuing to trade up on other sparkling wines in search of more character, finesse and quality, and the expansion of the M&S Collection to include two standout cuvées from a respected producer with an exceptional reputation for winemaking.
Tradition Premier Cru
A blend of 66% Chardonnay and 34% Pinot Noir from vineyards in the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims, this flagship blend is balanced, fresh and deliciously full-bodied, with notes of acacia and hawthorn flowers and white-fleshed fruit on the nose and a round and delicate palate. Food Pairing Suggestion: Sesame beef and seasonal vegetable stir-fry.
Premier Cru Rosé
63% Chardonnay, 24% Pinot Noir and 13% red wine (Pinot Noir) from the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims combine in wine with notes of sour cherry and strawberries on the nose, with a fresh and vivacious palate. Food Pairing Suggestion: Grilled prawns or a red fruit dessert.
