CHAMPAGNE BOURDAIRE-GALLOISFamily estate of 5.36 ha, including 4.60 ha of vine with which prevails of pinot meunier. It is Robert Massonnot, the grandfather of David Bourdaire, who began the agri-wine activity thanks to some family grounds. In 1951, it founds with three other vine growers the co-operative of Pouillon and markets its first bottles in 1956. At that time, the co-operative is only one place of collection and pressing, which sells the harvest of the members in the form of musts to the traders Champagne. They are only 2 to make their Champagne, themselves in the buildings of the co-operative with their own material.
This winemaker proposes you this remarkable Champagne Vintage 2007, always very typical terroir, of a very beautiful color, combining charm and frame, all in structure and perfumes, the nose of small fresh fruits, an unmodified cuvée, dense and very persistent, very fresh and perennial on the palate.
All in shades, its raw rosé, also not dosed, is very floral, subtly spicy, seductive by its finesse of aromas, which can be led to seafood tarts or a crab in the Caribbean.
Excellent White of raw whites, part of which is vinified in barrels, it smells the musk, the queen apple and the hawthorn, very attractive on the nose as in the mouth, with notes of hazelnut in the final, perfect, for example, on oysters or marinated raw salmon. Beau Prestige non dosé, 40% pinot meunier, 40% Chardonnay, 20% pinot noir, from rich silty soils, which develops delicious buttery aromas, lively mouth, fine and complex with fresh citrus flavors, where we find shades of ripe grapes and nuts, all in flavors.
Its Tradition, 100% pinot meunier, is a beautiful success, a cool cuvée, elegant moss, all in the end, a very saline Champagne that makes salivate. Taste the Brut Reserve (very pretty bottle screen-printed), suave, all in subtlety, with connotations of flowers and toasted bread and this hint of freshness on the palate.
