That's "Grower Champagne" in everyday parlance and a lot more elegant than it sounds! While most of the big Champagne houses buy their grapes from growers in the region and then produce the Champagne, there are a growing number of grape growers, producing their own Champagne and of an excellent quality!
Here at Wing Hop Fung, we carry delicious bubblies from some of the top grower-producers. These are all high scoring, elegant, and perfect to accompany food. This month, we're offering special deals on these special cuvees!
Check them out below:
Gaston Chiquet Expressions NV Brut AVAILABLE IN ARCADIA AND MONTEREY PARK Reg. Price 39.98 Special Price 35.98
90 points - Wine Spectator. Lightly floral, this subtle, balanced version offers flavors of lemon curd, yellow plum, chalk and biscuit.
J. Lasalle Brut Rose 1er Cru AVAILABLE IN ARCADIA AND MONTEREY PARK Reg. Price 57.98 Special Price 52.98
92 points - Robert Parker, 95 points Wine and Spirits. The blend includes 85 percent pinot noir, almost all of it direct pressed, producing a wine with the kind of pale pink color that’s hard to resist. There’s a whisper of tangy, forest-fresh wild strawberries in a brisk, cool springtime scent. The texture is delicate, with creaminess that’s light and ethereal.
Champagne Geoffroy Brut Expression NV AVAILABLE IN ARCADIA Reg. Price 45.98 Special Price 41.98
92 points - Wine Spectator. Bright and elegant, this well-knit, aperitif-style Champagne offers lively acidity and a fine bead, with floral overtones and a focused palate of poached pear, chalk, candied kumquat and passion fruit.
Larmandier-Bernier Rose Brut NV AVAILABLE IN ARCADIA Reg. Price 69.98 Special Price 62.98
93 points - Antonio Galloni. Boasts considerable focus...should blossom beautifully with time in the glass. Sweet floral notes wrap around the intense finish. This is a gorgeous Rose, but readers will need to be patient. Personally, I like the wiry style very much.
Vilmart Cuvee Grand Cellier Brut AVAILABLE IN ARCADIA Reg Price 69.98 Special Price 62.98
92 points - Burghund. An elegant, pure and airy nose combines notes of citrus peel, soft yeast and plenty of green apple, pear and petrol scents. There is excellent intensity to the crisp, intense and focused flavors that terminate in a very dry and linear finish. As is almost always the case with Vilmart wines, the supporting effervescence is quite fine and overall, this could be enjoyed young or easily held for another 5 to 7 years depending on your preferences
Suenen C+C Grand Cru Blanc de Blanc AVAILABLE IN ARCADIA Reg. Price 69.98 Special Price 62.98
C + C, a blend of wines from Grand Cru vineyards of Chouilly and Cramant is rich and briny. Intoxicating nose of lemon blossom, sea spray, and stone fruit, accompanied by chalky, taut and stony palate.
Paul Bara Brut NV AVAILABLE IN ARCADIA Reg. Price 47.98 Special Price 42.98
90 points - Vinous. The NV Brut Réserve Grand Cru is a terrific introduction to the Bara house style. Citrus; almond, orchard fruit and floral notes abound in a Champagne of real personality and class. The texture and resonance of the Pinot that makes up most of the blend and the natural richness of Bouzy are felt mostly in the wine's weight and textural feel. There is plenty to like in this vinous, inviting Champagne from Bara.
