  4. Champagne Girardin 6 Bottle Mixed Case (The Award Winning Collection)
    £198.94

    A 6 Bottle Mixed Case consisting of the following wines: Cuvee Appoggiature (Brut), Cuvee Point D'Orgue Vintage 2007 and Cuvee Vibrato Vintage 2007.

    Cuvee Appoggiature (Brut): A blend of 55% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Meunier,15% Pinot Noir. Dosage of 9 g/L. Harvest years: 85% 2009, 15% 2008. Ageing: over 24 months An appoggiatura, from the Italian verb appoggiare, meaning to sustain, is a melodic ornament that serves to retard a following note that requires emphasis. Appoggiature is thus the key note Champagne of the Domaine B. Girardin range. It introduces the house style, first in line with its delicately fruity flavours. Aromas of flowers, pears and white peach are conveyed by delicate and gentle bubbles, making this an ideal aperitif drink. The French horn, symbol of this cuvée, was considered, prior to the 18th century, to be the instrument of spells and bewitchments. The Appoggiature cuvée entices us to pursue the melody with the expressive cuvées Rubato, Point d’Orgue and Vibrato.

    Cuvée Point D'Orgue Vintage 2007: A blend of 30% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Meunier, 40% Pinot Noir. Dosage: 8 g/L. Harvest year: 2007 and Ageing: 5 years. The French musical term Point d’orgue is the equivalent of fermata in English musicology. Its function is to prolong a note or series of notes, thus creating a pause in the tempo. The term itself refers to the capacity of the organ, as an instrument, to hold a note for an unlimited duration. Cuvée Point d’Orgue supends the flow of time, like for the duration of a harvest. Quality naturally depends on this harvest, and time will decide when the wine is ready to be drunk. The 2007 vintage now reveals its vinosity through the leading role played by Pinot Noir. The aromas are rich with notes of pear and honey and the flavours linger on the palate like a note held fermata. The piano is the symbol of the cuvée Point d’Orgue. It illustrates the producer’s solo role in deciding to vintage a year, or not. In this case the producer is herself a pianist. She alone decides the partition of the year.

    Cuvée Vibrato Vintage 2007: A 100% chardonnay (blanc de blancs). Dosage: 9 g/L. Harvest years: vintage 2007, Ageing: 5 years. Vibrato is a tremulous effect produced by an instrumental or vocal note giving rapid variations of pitch. Its exact effect will depend on the instrument and the musician’s technique. As with other nuancing effects, vibrato will add a feel of expressiveness. The cuvée Vibrato stands apart in the Champagne B. Girardin range, not only for its rarity (like Point d’Orgue it bears a vintage) but also for its composition: it is a pure chardonnay (blanc de blancs) and is the result of blending grapes from two very different terroirs. The vibrations on the palate are due to the natural freshness and lemon-like aromas of the chardonnay, whereas their amplitude is defined by the terroirs of Vitry-en-Perthois and Mancy. Vitry produces a richer and more exotic resonance, whereas Mancy, with its limestone soils, add finesse and focus. The saxophone has been chosen as symbol for the cuve´e Vibrato rather than the more obvious guitar. The reason is that the modulation of the saxophone’s notes is given by the mouth, and this is where the cuvée Vibrato comes to life!

  7. Champagne Girardin Cuvee Rubato (Doux)

    A blend of 60% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Meunier, 10% Pinot Noir. Dosage: 120 g/L

    Ageing: more than 5 years. Harvest years: mainly 2006.

    Rubato, which means «hidden» or «secret» in Italian, signifies an instruction to accelarate certain notes and slow down others. These variations in speed of execution are applied according to the will and inspiration of the conductor or musician. The melody is thus momentarily held back and this effect, when well handled, can give a specific tonality to the rendering. The cuvée Rubato is analogous to this notion as it signifies the coming together of a wine, as a tune with its specific rhythm, and the winemaker playing the part of a musician-interpreter. Very fine bubbles almost stand still in the glass. The wine is both sweet and vibrant, showing notes of quince and green plum. This Champagne has two sides to it: its rythm is provided by the crispness of the fruit flavours and the sweetness by the winemaker. Cuvée Rubato opens up a whole new field in terms of wine & food pairing: as an aperitif with a slice of lemon, with pan-fried foie gras, or with a fruit- based dessert like apple pie. One can use its altering rythms to ring the changes! The double bass, which symbolises this cuvée Rubato, was the accompanying instrument at the time of Bach or Handel for singers who practised rubato.

  9. Champagne Vincent Couche 6 Bottle Mixed Case (The Sensation Collection)
    £404.64

    A 6 bottle mixed case consisting of the following wines: Sensation 1997 (Brut) and Sensation 1995 (Brut).

    Sensation 1997 (Brut): A blend of 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay. Dosage of 8g/L. Date of Disgorgement April 11, 2012. “This champagne, with a light golden color, has an expressive nose of dried fruit, with discrete notes of candied pineapple and bread crusts. With aeration it is enriched with notes of honey, nougat, and apple tart. The palate is generous, opulent, and rich with an astonishing freshness which persists in the mouth. A champagne which presents an excellent balance. A real discovery!” Gault et Millau. 17/20

    Sensation 1995 (Brut): A blend of 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay. Dosage of 8g/L. Date of Disgorgement October 10, 2011. Cuvée “Sensation 1995” was left to mature for over 18 years in our cellar. This maturation allowed the development of the subtlety and aromatic complexity of this champagne. In this way, having improved year after year in the cellar, its character, fruit and finesse prove that it was judicious to wait. “Now at its peak, the vintage cuvée “Sensation 1995” offers you an “intense nose of candied fruits, hazelnut, sweet almond and hot butter. The mouth captures a perfect balance of magnitude and aromatics. As always, there is a crystalline acidity on the finish which marks the purity of all of their champagnes.” Geoffrey Orban, European Vice Ambassador of Champagne

  10. Champagne Vincent Couche Vintage 2004 (Extra Brut) Magnum

    A blend of 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay. Dosage of 4g/L

    “We once more regain the house style previously seen in the cuée “Chloé.” Without artifice or over-production, these wines are aimed at the informed public and lovers of chiseled champagnes. Good aeration, even possibly in a decanter, would ensure a good expression. The nose opens with a sappy vegetal note accompanied by honey, the mouth is straight and structured, showing length more than size.” Gault et Millau. 16.5/20
