Champagne Guy Remi, Brut NV
Guy Remi Champagne, a small 3.4 hectare family owned domaine in the Marne Valley, sold Champagne to my French grandparents for over 70 years. For five generations they grew grapes for the bigger Champagne houses but for the last two generations, now under the watchful eye of Nathalie and Jérémy, grow and produce their very own. Using sustainable agriculture, natural insecticides and minimal intervention in the vineyards, they produce a number of expressive wines typical of the Marne region and centered around its mainstay grape: Pinot Meunier. I took a trip to Champagne a few years ago to meet them - not least the legendary Guy Remi himself who sadly passed away this November - and having seen, tasted and loved their wines am so pleased to be shipping them to the UK.
Brut Tradition NV is a Blanc de Noirs Champagne - a special blend of only the two permitted black grapes in Champagne without one Chardonnay grape (the third permitted variety) in sight. Whilst Chardonnay offers fragrance, citrus notes and an affinity to age, the black grapes are no-nonsense, bringing soft fruit, weight and complexity. The resulting style is fuller and softer, smooth and easy, with plenty of good fruit and biscuit notes but without that harsh acidity that Chardonnay often brings. Typical of the Marne valley, Guy Remi's Brut Tradition is what I deem to be the perfect, affordable session Champagne and one that's perfect for Christmas, weddings, christenings or any other celebration.
