Champagne Blend

Champagne Blend

The Champagne Blend grape is a unique combination of three different grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier. This exceptional blend is the cornerstone of the world-renowned sparkling wine, Champagne, cultivated in the hallowed chalky soil of the Champagne region in Northeast France.

Pinot Noir, provides backbone, structure, and longevity to the blend, while Chardonnay contributes finesse, elegance, and brightness. Pinot Meunier offers a fruity, charming, and approachable character, which makes these wines more accessible in their youth.

Though the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are reckoned to be the protagonists in the blend, each grape variety grants a distinct character, creating a balanced and complex outcome. Some Champagne houses even make wine from only one grape variety – these are known as "Blanc de Blancs" if made from 100% Chardonnay or "Blanc de Noirs" if crafted entirely from Pinot Noir and/or Pinot Meunier.

The Champagne Blend grape has allowed Champagne to be a symbol of celebratory toasts for centuries, not only across Britain but worldwide. The traditional method of Champagne production is meticulous and time-consuming, involving a secondary fermentation in the bottle and extended lees ageing, which imparts a richness and depth to the wine.

These grapes, in their perfect blend, result in the vivacious and sparkling effervescence of Champagne, with its refined notes of apple, citrus fruits, cream, almond, and toasty brioche. A sip of Champagne carries an irresistible acidity, a leash of bubbles, and an enduring finish – making it a timeless accompaniment to a wide range of dishes from oysters to caviar, from white meat to truffle fries.

Through the centuries, the Champagne Blend grape continues to hold its prestige, embodying a perfect symphony of flavours and aromas. Irrespective of the occasion, a Champagne toast never fails to enhance the sense of celebration and make an elegant statement.
