New cuvées

There are 3 new cuvées not on our website yet as we do not have stock, however, we are happy to take orders to add to our next delivery first week in December. As with sale items, orders must be received by Thursday 21st November with payment as described above.



Les Petites Vignes

This delightful champagne comes from a single vineyard in Puisieulx, just to the north and down the hill from Mailly-Champagne. Puisieulx is classified 100% Grand Cru and this cuvée, which is aged for 3 years, is pure pinot noir and limited to 1,000 individually numbered bottles a year, of which only 300 remain. My online price, if it lasts that long, will be £30. This is a real bargain, but I would say that wouldn’t I!



The second new cuvée is a Rosé from Pierre Launay. But they already do a Rosé you say and you are right, however, this is a Rosé de saignée as opposed to a Rosé d’assemblage. It is 100% Pinot Noir and is produced by maceration the grapes and leaving the juice with the skins for 3-4 days to extract the aroma and colour. It is a 2012 vintage limited to 1500 bottles and priced at £32.75.
