Tasting note

it is a champagne with fine and lively bubbles, straw gold in color. It has delicate notes and is very nuanced a pretty burst of aromas: honeysuckle, apricot, blackcurrant, buttercup, soft chalk, acacia, apple-almond, pear-quince. Note the honeysuckle as it represents the Pinots in this champagne. The fresh aromas of raspberries and citrus is accented by honey, hazelnut and gingerbread. The attack is graceful and fresh; with a nod to rich and plump fruits. A gourmet taste surrounding a fruit and spice (gingerbread, honeysuckle, and honey). And it lasts: the finish is persistent, rich and salty. This is a fresh and earthy wine.

Food pairing

Pumpkin soup and scallops; Roasted cod fillet and parsnip purée; Filet mignon of veal with reduced morel sauce; Beef and shiitake cassolette; Brie chesse from Meaux

About the producer

The history of the Gounel-Lassalle family began at the end of the 19th century in Chigny les Roses, a village in the heart of the mountains of Reims, classified as Premier Cru. Gabriel and Alfred Lassalle bought the first vines to cultivate them. Two generations follow one another. Hélène born Lassalle married Gounel and Pierre Gounel is their grandson. Today Arnaud, a passionate winegrower, in love with his vines and his wines, perpetuates this tradition passed on for 4 generations. A passionate winegrower, Arnaud Gounel transcends his roots with Sophie, his spark. He continues on his path, elaborating his wines with passion in order to one day pass on his terroir and his family know-how to his two sons Leonard and Marius, who will continue to write the history of Champagne Gounel Lassalle. The vineyard, labelled as High Environmental Value (HVE) level 3A, sustainable viticulture in Champagne (VDC) extends over 5 hectares, spread over 29 plots located in the villages of Chigny les roses, Ludes and Rilly la montagne, classified as Premier Cru.
