Champagne André Chemin

André Chemin Entre Terre et Mer Gift Box, Brut Excellence 2006

€200

From the Maker:

"Limited edition gift box including:

· 2 champagne glasses

· 1 bottle of TERRE Champagne Brut Excellence 2006 matured in our cellars

· 1 bottle of MER Champagne Brut Excellence 2006 matured for 1 year 60m below sea level off the Brittany coast, near the Island of Ushant ​(Atlantic Ocean) close to 48°28'10''N&5°03'17''W ​

The aim is to offer the possibility to compare two identical bottles, the same blend, the same date of bottling and the same disgorging date and to prove that the aging of bottles under the sea really does make a difference. The MER bottle offers an unexpected freshness.

Tasting notes: Light golden colour with a green hue and mild creamy mousse. Fine nose blending citrus, pear, yellow fruit, almond and fresh butter. Medium bodied palate with a fresh bite, pure and distinct with youthful but ripe fruit, peach and citrus notes, a soft creamy mousse, and a long and biting finish."

About the Maker:

It's in 1948 when André Chemin starts the production of champagne under his name. Today we are a third generation of champagne producers working under the name of Sébastian's grandfather.

​Sacy being close to Reims and its famous automobile racing circuit, well-known for the '12 Hours Endurance Race'  (12 Heures Internationales de Reims), our Parisian neighbours came to see the races and after a brief visit to the cellars walked away with champagne. This is how the business started and small houses like ours built their customer base.

The production and sales of Champagne grew by planting new land, but also by buying new plots of vineyard.  

André Chemin Champagne is a fully independent family company with a yearly production of fifty-five thousand bottles of champagne and a stock of two hundred thousand bottles in the cellar, necessary in order to be able to cover our clients needs.
