Discover Elegant Champagne
The Champagne region is home to a rich history of wine production, one which dates back to the Middle Ages, when Pope Urban II first declared these wines to be the best in the world. The region comprises roughly 34,000 hectares of vineyards, producing an average of one million bottles per day. At latitude 49°N, this region is one of the most northerly wine-producing regions in the world, with much cooler average temperatures than any other region in France.
The Millesima team has carefully chosen bottles from three well-known producers for the Champagne Gift Set. These wines are uniquely bold and made from the three traditional champagne varieties. Pinot Noir contributes a certain weight on the palate, along with dark fruit aromas. Pinot Meunier contributes a nice acidity and a fruitiness that shines brightest in younger wines. And Chardonnay lends the wine an elegance and finesse, a certain creamy roundness on the palate, along with fresh stone fruit aromas.
The Champagne Gift Set contains three unique bottles: Maison Taisne Riocour is a family estate which has gradually grown over generations and today covers over 11 hectares across the Champagne region; the Telmont Champagne House benefited from a succession of visionary generations who all shared a passion for the terroirs of Champagne; and Drappier is one of the great names in Champagne.
Maison Taisne Riocour Blanc de Noir
Pinot Noir - Champagne
The Brut Tradition cuvee of Laherte Freres is a subtle blend of three varieties, reflecting the diversity of Laherte Freres’ terroir. A fine and complex blend with gorgeous fruit and a certain delicacy. Well-spiced and mouthwatering, this champagne offers expressive flavors of black raspberry, dried apricot, orange blossom, fleur de sel and crystallized honey.
Telmont Reserve Brut
Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier - Champagne
Reserve Brut showcases a subtle marriage between three of the Champagne region’s iconic grape varieties and seven different vintages. The ensemble offers an array of expressions that perfectly reveal a harmonious blend between richness, fruit and freshness. This Reserve Brut champagne offers a sublime aromatic richness. Aromas of cooked fruit such as Mirabelle plum blend with slightly spicy notes before giving way to tropical fruit notes. The finish is lively and quite mineral in character.
Drappier Carte d’Or
Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay - Champagne
The nose of the Drappier Carte d’Or reveals delicious stone fruit fragrances. Powerful and complex, the palate seduces with its spicy notes, its structure and its characteristic quince jelly aromas. Ideal as an aperitif, Drappier's Carte d'Or will go well with white meat, fish or Chaource cheese.
