Francois Seconde Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs 2014
- Rich, complex
There is Champagne made by the big well-known houses, in big numbers with big distribution channels. And there are Grower Champagnes made by people with their own vineyards, making small-batch examples with extremely limited production.
Well - the Francois Seconde ‘Grand Cru’ Blanc de Blancs is just that. This is cult Grower Champagne at its best.
The nose is like walking into a bustling bakery, with bready, biscuity, brioche aromas, becoming finer with underlying citrus and blossom. Talk about pretty.

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.
