Grower Champagne

No wine symbolizes celebration, festivity, and conviviality like Champagne. And for decades - in fact centuries - 'Champagne' has immediately evoked the luxury brand image of an exclusive group of long-established 'Grandes Marques', for true connoisseurs things have changed.

While the Grandes Marques admirably maintain their reputation for consistency and reliability in association with production on a grand scale, one of the most exhilarating new developments in the world of wine is the emergence of small (sometimes very small) independent Champagne growers who are dedicated to producing terroir-expressive wines from their own small vineyards. Of course it doesn't hurt that many of the 'small vineyards' in question are superbly situated family plots that have been lovingly farmed for many generations, including some of the finest Grands Crus in all of Champagne. Suddenly we are blessed with a diverse array of distinctive wines that would have seemed too much to hope for a generation ago.

Today’s offer has a wine for nearly any champagne lover, covering a diverse array of styles. Please browse the entire offer to find exceptional vintage, great value, Blanc de Blancs, Rosé, and some large formats. If you have any questions – just hit reply. We love to talk about wine.

April 2019


Disgorged in July 2017, the 2012 Brut Millésimé Ambonnay Grand Cru is excellent, wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet of honeyed orchard fruit, gingerbread, smoky peach and subtle spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, pure and racy, with a broad, delicately textural attack, a deep and youthfully tight-knit core and a bright spine of acidity, displaying a frothy mousse and a long, focused finish. While the wine is already drinking well, it appears to possess considerable potential to improve further in the cellar.

James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion), November 2018


Disgorged in July ’17 after seven years on lees. The name is – well – odd, but the vines, the grapes and the wine are anything but. Even if you know nothing of this great Champagne House, you would recognise the serious complexity and intensity, the pulsating expression of chardonnay and the long, lingering aftertaste.

Wine Advocate, April 2019


Disgorged in October 2017, the latest rendition of the NV Brut Rosé de Blancs 1er Cru is showing nicely, offering up aromas of red berries, citrus oil, green apples and warm biscuits. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, bright and delicate, with an ultra-fine mousse, tangy acids and an elegantly chalky finish. This is an unusually refined, Chardonnay-based rosé that will drink well for a decade.
