Germar Breton Blanc de Blancs
Type: Sparkling Wine
Wine Region: Champagne, France
Tasting Notes: A sublime gold robe with clear reflections. A savoury nose revealed by yellow exotic fruit aromas highlighted. Composed of a fine bouquet, combining notes of fresh fruits (apple, grapefruit), almonds, pastries (cake, brioche).
The wine is left to age on the lees in the bottle for between 24 and 36 months. Following ageing the Champagnes are riddled to get rid of the yeasts from the second fermentation and 8 g/l dosage is added.
In 1989 Laurent Breton, youngest among his brothers, together with his wife Karine Breton decided launch their own winemaking activity in the Côte des Bars area near the village of Colombé-la-Fosse. In 2005, eager to develop their own Champagne, they decided to launch “Champagne Germar Breton”.
Suggested food and wine pairing: This Champagne, which can be enjoyed as an aperitif, also goes wonderfully with fishes, shellfish, foie gras.
