Champagne Gardet Brut Tradition NV

Champagne, FranceGardet has been an active negociant in Champagne since 1895, and this is their flagship wine. The predominant red grapes (90 percent equally split between pinots noir and meunier) is brightened with 10% chardonnay, sourced from approximately 20 villages across Champagne. Reserve wines, primarily from the 3 vintages preceding the harvest, make up 30%. The whole rests for 3 years on lees, and is dosed with 8 g/L. Welcoming and friendly, with green apple, lemon peel, Rainier cherry, strawberry brioche, and a light dusting of spice which rests on the gently humming finish. An easy choice for cracking into now, with crowds.Tasted: 18 November 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 55.00 private wine shops Producer: Champagne GardetDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
