Champagne Cuvée Tendresse Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagne Jean Milan Oger SOLD OUT Ref: 3388011
A blend of 2002 & 2003 wines, this wine is notable for the liqueur that has been added, resulting in sugar levels of 24g/litre. making it soft whilst retaining finesse and freshness, yet this wine tastes barely sweet - the perfect Blanc de Blancs with a slither of superbly integrated sweetness. Ideal with desserts, or as an aperitif. Try it with foie gras ... simply irresistible! On the nose, notes of wisteria and hyacinth, some brioche; superb on the palate, with a fine mousse, lots of fine fruit, with some acacia-honey. The wonderful label for this wine bears the portrait of a woman, Caroline Milans great grandmother in her youth.
Selected by the "Guide Gilbert et Gaillard des Meilleurs Champagnes".

Champagne Brut Rosé Champagne Jean Milan Oger Ref: 3388015
This rosé champagne is produced using the "saignée" technique. This method is rare in Champagne nowadays - perhaps only 5% of pink Champagne is made this way, the remainder being a blend of red and white wines. Saignée involves allowing the red grapeskins to remain in contact with the fermenting juice, allowing colour and tannins to be imparted. Principally Pinot Noir, but with a small dash of Chardonnay to bring freshness and elegance. Excellent as an apéritif or at the end of a meal with strawberry or raspberry based desserts.
Aÿ Grand Cru La Pelle Extra Brut Champagne Roger Brun Aÿ-Champagne COMING SOON AGAIN Ref: 3388020
This superb cuveé is phenomenal. Made with 100% Grand Cru pinot noir from a single vineyards called "La Pelle". a south facing slope in Ay which is always one of the first Aÿ sites to mature each year. Classified as Extra Brut, with dosage of just 3g/litre. Matured in small old oak barrels, and unfiltered, this wondrous brew has fantastic weight, depth and balance, and could conceivably be drunk with main course dishes; it very persistent and intensely flavoured. Perfect food partner - flambéd lobster, sushi. 12.0% ABV.

Brut Rosé 1er Cru Nature (ZERO DOSAGE) Champagne Roger Brun Aÿ-Champagne COMING SOON AGAIN Ref: 3388021
Once in a while we come across something very special, and this wine is just that! The first time I visited Brun, this wine had not been released for sale, but I was offered a taste of the zero dosage version, which would not normally be offered for the UK market. But this wine was just fabulous and I managed to get hold of a limited amount.
Composition is 90 % Pinot Noir, 10 % Pinot Meunier, from Mareuil/Ay and Mutigny. It's made using saignée - like a red wine, but the maceration is shorter, one or two days instead of the minimum 5 days for red wine production. Vinification is in stainless steel. It's only made in good years, with very mature grapes from old vineyards, and in small quantities. Fruity and intense, crisp and of course very dry, with a long lingering finish. Stunning stuff, very moreish indeed.
Philippe Brun describes it thus:- "Rare! Made the authentic way, direct from harvest.".

This sparkling wine is made from 100% Chardonnay using the traditional bottle fermentation method. A fine nose of pears, quince, melon and honey; on the palate biscuity and spicy with an extremely fine mousse.
