With total production of merely 150,000 bottles, it is no wonder that Champagne Alfred Gratien has more of a cult following than an international brand image. Small by design, owner and Managing Director Alain Seydoux is dedicated to producing wine of the very highest quality: "Champagne has to be king. It has no justification otherwise." Grape selection, vinification techniques, and the care the wines receive have more in common than many of the larger, more famous industrial brand Champagne houses.

TASTING NOTES: This is a thoroughbred champagne in its origins and in its expression. With stronger qualities in its wine taste than as a sparkling drink, its power and quality improve in the flute. It has real potential and gourmet style. The first aromatic impression is one of airy lightness, with floral and mineral tones. Saffron, toast and new leather then reveal themselves. The closing notes are orange blossom and red berries. It stands up very well to aeration.

The initial taste is fresh and full bodied, and the bubbles melt immediately into the wine. This wine is expansive, concentrated and bold in the mouth. The sweetness dissipates to reveal a heavier taste underpinned by clay minerality. Its intense character gives it a creamy texture.
