Cuvee de Reserve Brut NV, Gallimard Pere & Fils, Aube
Smooth and tinged with gold, marked by aromas of citrus and exotic fruits with a very aromatic and supple palate.
Didier Gallimard and his son, Arnaud, owns 10 hectares of prime vineyards on the steep slopes around Les Riceys in the southern Aube. Didier is the 6th generation and Arnaud the 7th of this family domaine.
Their vines’ average age is over 30 years and the dramatically sloping vineyards, which are of chalk and Kimmeridgian limestone, are planted mainly to Pinot Noir and just a little Chardonnay. Their wines are full and rich and offer enticing aromas and flavours of summer fruits.
