André Chemin Brut Cuvée Sélectionnée NV
- Rich, complex
Composed of 80% pinot noir and 20% chardonnay, Brut Cuvée Sélectionnée from André Chemin is a masterclass in rich, full Champagne. It spends 6-7 years on lees, allowing for the complete development of an array of aromas and flavours. There’s only 6.5 grams per litre of dosage, creating balance but maintaining dryness on the palate and finish. The judges at the Decanter World Wine Awards absolutely adored this cuvée, awarding it a gold medal and 95 points. Check out their review below.
“An educated nose of honeycomb, verbena, Alpine strawberry and a touch of spice. The palate is rich and rounded with notes of red berries and summer flowers; poised and persuasive. Masterful Champagne.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Champagne is not generic sparkling wine, it's a region. There I said it. Get it right people. The reason the French get their lingerie in a twizzle when we call Trilogy 'Champoyne' is the history, the money and the angst that have all gone into making Champagne what it is today: a bureaucratic, strictly controlled, marketing-driven behemoth, that still manages to pump out some of the world's finest and most consistent wines. Adding bubbles to wine was a masterstroke of genius, and makes wine from marginal regions not only palatable, but unique and eminently desirable. But it's the way the grapes are grown, the land they're grown in, and the way the bubbles are generated that makes traditional method sparkling (which all Champagne is) special. There will always be alternatives, but none have the history and marketing power of the luxury Champagne powerhouses. You're not buying wine; you're buying a brand name. And that's ok.
