Champagne J. Charpentier

In the box you will find:

Champagne J. Charpentier Prestige Cuvée
A blend of the three main grape varieties of Champagne (60% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Meunier, 20% Chardonnay) this Champagne has character and strength. Delicious citrus flavours with slight buttery hints and a long, flavourful finish. The addition of 20% Chardonnay to the blend, and ageing for 22 to 30 months, lends more complexity and intensity. The cuvée is made from wines of two to three harvests that have been matured in oak barrels and casks.  The bottles then rest for more than two and a half years in the cellar.  It has a golden straw colour and thin and intense bubbles. On the nose, intense aromas of bread crust and vanilla, then custard, almonds, butter and bergamot. The palate is rich in freshness and flavour, appropriate references to hints of yeast and ripe fruit. Pair it with stuffed pasta or  chicken stuffed with mushrooms and chestnuts for an extraordinary tasting experience.

Champagne J. Charpentier Réserve Brut
This is the J. Charpentier flagship cuvée, a ‘Blanc de Noirs’ made entirely of black grapes (80% Pinot Meunier and 20% Pinot Noir). The grapes come from sites in the cru villages of Reuil, Binson-Orquigny, Châtillon sur Marne, Villers sous Châtillon, Le Breuil, Neuville sur Seine and Ludes. This is the J. Charpentier house style, an assemblage of two years’ harvest with a little oak ageing and then 30 to 36 months ageing in the cellar . The ultimate fruity champagne. It has a pale and bright yellow colour with thin, crystalline, persistent and plentiful bubbles. Excellent for the aperitif. It can be served with cold fish (salmon, halibut), shellfish or a warm pâté en croute.
Champagne J. Charpentier Premier Cru
Careful grape selection is the secret of this Champagne. Only the best Pinot Noir (60%) and Chardonnay (40%) grapes from the Premier Cru villages of Avenay Val d’Or (Marne Valley) and Ludes (Montagne de Reims) are vinified into this flagship product. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in thermoregulated vats and it is followed by malolactic fermentation. Then reserve wines from two different harvest are blended in and stored in vats and temperature-controlled tanks. The bottles are aged in the cellar for 36 to 48 months.
The colour is pure gold, with elegant thin bubbles. A colourful bouquet of apricots, dried plums, hazelnuts and vanilla unfolds on the nose. In the mouth, it is fresh, mixing mineral notes with hints of brioche. Excellent length, fresh and balanced. Perfect for the aperitif and great with vegetable based dishes or white meat meats .

Champagne J. Charpentier Prestige Rosé
This is a rosé d’assemblage, meaning that 90% of the wine is identical to the white Champagne Prestige, and the remaining 10% is a red wine made from 50-year-old vines of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Ageing takes place in temperature-controlled tanks and oak barrels. Once poured into a glass, its salmon colour shines bright with its fine and plentiful bubbles. The nose is intense with notes of candy, exotic fruit and redcurrant. The palate is very smooth and complex, with aromas of red fruits, lilac and a hint of toast. Enjoy it as an aperitif during a warm summer afternoon or pair it with game and fish but also with a fruity dessert. The bottle is silkscreen printed on transparent glass so you can admire the rose colour.
Champagne J. Charpentier Origine Brut Nature
A Brut Nature or Zero Dosage, is the driest grade of Champagne, with no sugar added in the liqueur d’expedition. As with all J. Charpentier Champagnes it has undergone malolactic fermentation and has been aged in the bottle for at least four years. Its colour is deep yellow and it has intense white peach, citrus, and almonds. In the mouth it is tense and fresh, with notes of citrus and a saline touch in the end. Complex and fresh. A great summer Champagne. It’s freshness and body perfectly accompany sushi and scallops!

Maison J. Charpentier
The Charpentiers have been winemakers since 1920 when Pierre Charpentier began growing grapes. Back in the day most winemakers in the Champagne region sold the grapes they produced to negotiants, or the big Maison.
It was Pierre’s son, Marcellin, who first produced Charpentier Champagne in 1954. Four years later, Marcellin died suddenly and his wife, Solange, was left to run the business while rearing three children. One of her sons, Jacky began making wine at the age of 11, showing prodigious ability.
Over the next few years, through hard work, diligence and passion, Jacky Charpentier, the J in the J. Charpentier brand, managed to save, and indeed improve, the family business, achieving the recognition and respect that is now associated with the J.Charpentier label.
The work in the vines, across all plots in all the different villages, is mainly manual, with a special focus on the environment and the quality of the harvest. This Maison holds a certificate of High Environmental Value.
