'Blanc de Noirs' Brut Grand Cru Bouzy Champagne NV
A big, full-blown, powerful blanc de noirs (100% Pinot Noir from the Grand Cru vineyards of Bouzy), which nevertheless retains a balance and freshness along with its considerable vinosity. Rated even higher than Bollinger by Robert Parker this is exceptional value! L&S (Mar 2005)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
*STAR BUY* The toasty, sappy thrust of a champagne made entirely from pinot noir is immensely pleasing. This is bold, big, reassuring and amazing value. 'The Best Champagnes for Christmas'.Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph(Nov 2018)
A markedly yeasty nose features notes of ripe pear and apple notes along with plenty of baked bread character. The very rich and relatively full-bodied, delicious, well-detailed and solidly complex flavors possess excellent detail on the clean and dry finish. The mousse is generous and while the palate impression is not especially refined, it’s the excellent complexity that makes this so compelling.

Up next, we have a bottle from a small grower based in Bouzy, which was, and to some extent still is, known as red wine country. Blanc de noirs means it’s only made from dark grapes which you can taste in the vivid, orangey fruit moving into marmalade flavours that have a real smokiness on the finish. Tangy and delicious.BBC Good Food Guide(Mar 2018)
When Edmond Barnaut married in 1874, he created this marque with his own and his wife's vineyards. Since 1985 the fifth generation has been in charge with Philippe Secondé making well-aged Champagnes (five years average for the Grande Réserve) which are very representative of the full-bodied style of Bouzy - the excellent Pinot Noir of the village's Grand Cru Vineyards providing the backbone (2/3) of the Grande Réserve and all of the Blanc de Noirs. The domaine is certified for High Environmental Value (HVE) and Sustainable Viticulture in Champagne (VDC).
Christmas is definitely the time of the year to explore our Grower Champagne. We have put together 3 pairs of our favourite wines, from the ethereal Larmandier-Bernier Longitude to the rich Barnaut Blanc de Noirs and the complex Gonet-Médeville Blanc de Noirs 1er Cru.
With every man and his wife on the lookout for Champagne 'deals', it is sad that so many people overlook the best 'deals' of all - high quality, grower-made Champagnes, packed with character, and at prices significantly below any of the best prices you might find for Grande Marque Champagnes.
