André Chemin Champagne - Vintage Brut Excellence 2008

Customer reviews

The Cuvee Brut Excellence champagne by André Chemin is a 2008 vintage made of 100% Chardonnay Premier Cru white wine from the mountains of Reims.

2008 was not a good year for the Champagne region, due to the cold and rainy weather. This year, however, was qualified by oenologists as an excellent year for the production of a wine with a remarkable concentration. The harvest took place under these conditions in the André Chemin vineyards. The know-how of the house, helped by a climatic help at the end of the summer, resulted in a very high quality champagne which brings out the aromatic potential of this terroir.

Thanks to its very high quality, the wine used to make this Blanc de Blancs champagne did not undergo malolactic fermentation. It contains 2.4g of sugar per liter and fully expresses the aromas of the Chardonnay Premier Cru used to make it.

A Blanc de Blancs, with fine and complex aromas.

For which occasions should it be served?

This tasting champagne is perfect for a summer aperitif with friends. Champagne lovers will also love it with fine poultry or scallops.

A little advice from our team

The wine grower has already aged this champagne for 10 years and brought it to its gustative peak. Wine lovers can easily keep this champagne for up to 10 years in optimal conditions.

Aspect: Golden robe with fine, persistent bubbles.

Nose: A beautiful nose which suggests white fruits and a hint of honey and caramel.

Palate: It has excellent roundness on the palate, elegantly combining freshness and subtle changes. Aromas of dried fruit and pastries blend with the more acidic citrus fruits (pink grapefruit, lemon).

André Chemin champagne in a few words

The vines of this family House founded in 1948 now extend over 6.5 hectares on the Reims mountains and are exclusively classified as Premier Cru.

Eva and Sébastian are the third generation of André Chemin winegrowers, following the creation of the brand 70 years ago, under which the family markets its champagnes.

Located a few kilometers south of Reims, in the small village of Sacy, this family champagne House quietly maintains the traditions that have been developed and tested over the past 70 years.

Year after year, the André Chemin House pursues its quest for perfection through the seasons and the harvest, bringing improvements and novelties in the blends when the need arises and when their passions dictate it.
