Champagne Paul Goerg Launch New Vintage

28th October 2016


Champagne Paul Goerg launch their latest vintage 2007.

2007 is an unusual vintage, one of the few in Champagne when harvest started in August, like 2003 and 2011. After a very hot and sunny spring, the following months were rather gloomy with a lot of rain. Nevertheless, this cool weather did not impact the vines and very quickly berries reach optimal maturity. Harvest started at the very end of August and lasted until the third week of September. This wide window for picking combined with low volumes created perfect conditions for a serene harvest. In addition, 2007 vintage is of remarkable quality.

The Champagne is an intense pale gold colour. The aroma is both complex and subtle, with buttery aromas and notes dominated by spices, caramel, almond paste, litchi and vanilla. On the palate, it is at first very mineral. It then reveals a beautiful acidity, with citrus fruits and grapefruit aromas. This Champagne is very complex and delicate, yet at the same time rich and powerful.

Suggested food pairings: Lobster roasted in shrimps butter, duck breast with figs.
