"After the tightly coiled, hyper-concentrated 2008, Taittinger's 2011 Brut Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne represents a more immediate, charming rendition of this cuvée. Bursting from the glass with aromas of orchard and stone fruit mingled with notions of pastry cream, blanched almonds and mandarin, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and fleshy, with a soft and enveloping profile, lively acids and a pretty pinpoint mousse. Readers might think of the 2011 as a somewhat less reductive and less intense stylistic sibling of the 2006, and as it takes on more toasty complexity with bottle age, it will make for immensely seductive drinking."

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.
