In our most recent import of handpicked wines from across France, we stumbled upon the Champagne from Gouet-Henry based in Talus St Prix.
At first taste this wine appeared approachable and vibrant, it then rolled over the palate displaying the characteristics of a high quality champagne with brioche, honey, bright white flowers, and delicate yellow fruits. It finishes long and fine with the delicate texture. A stunning example of fine champagne for the price.
The grapes for Gouet-Henry Champagne Brut come from Talus-Saint-Prix in the Marne department, 37km south of Epernay and Hautvillers where Dom Pérignon, cellar master of the ever-famous abbey, is said to have discovered the art of Champagne-making.
In the gentle slopes of lime and clay soils are grown the classic Champagne grapes, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, which are represented in equal parts in this Champagne.Gouet-Henry is a Champagne that is “brut” / dry without being harsh or complicated and difficult to understand.
