Orpale is the Prestige Cuvée from Champagne de Saint Gall, made from Grand Cru vineyards in the Cotes de Blancs of Mesnil-Sur-Oger, Cramant, Avize, and Oger.

The wine is aged on its lees for 12 years, disgorged in May 2020 and is the drier side of Brut with 7 grams per litre.

This is a stunning Blanc de Blancs which I rate very highly: I would love to taste this alongside some of the big name houses. It is delicate and fragile with beautiful aromas of citrus oil, toasted brioche and acacia flowers.

At Noble Grape we source our Champagnes like any of our wines - we seek out quality, value, and authenticity of style. We favour Growers Champagnes, but we are not strict about that. We do stock a few of the big names, but those that are family owned and fit our ethos of quality over branding and lifestyle.

The highlights from our range include Pierre Gimonnet which is a grower based in Cuis in the Cotes de Blancs, where Chardonnay is king. Gimonnet makes a style of wine that is as close to 'dry' as possible for a Brut, with elegance and purity. René Geoffroy is another grower we favour whose vineyards in Cumieres tend to prefer Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

Elsewhere, we work with Beaumont de Crayeres, a leading co-operative, and Billecart Salmon whose wines we admire very much for their raciness and body.
