Champagnes with no wood contact

 

Recently a customer asked for champagnes without any wood influence, most have these have also not had the malolactic fermentation.

 

Pierre Moncuit

 

Delos Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs

 

Brut Millésime 2006 Grand cru Non Dosage Cuvée

 

Nicole Moncuit Vieille Vigne Millésime 2005

 

Moncuit is for me an excellent producer, very frsh style, the 2005 Cuvée Nicole is from the same Cru as Pierre Peters Chetillon. They prefer not use the name Chetillons.

 

 

 

Guiborat

 

Champagner Guiborat 100% Pinot Meunier Zero dosage 3g

 

Millésime Grand Cru 2011 Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut

 

Champagner Prisme .14 100% Chardonnay Grand Cru

 

Guiborat is an up and coming producer, very popular in Italy. The Prisme is the best value. The Pinot Meunier is new to their selection. Pinot Meunier is difficult as an aperitif champagne but works really well with proscuitto, jamon iberico or meat

 

 

 

Bedel Origine'Elle Extra Brut 24,90 90% Pinot Meunier and 10% Chardonnay, really fresh cuvée due to the chardonnay, excellent value.

 

 

 

Billecart-Salmon Champagne Billecart-Simon Millésime 2008 extra Brut

 

 

 

Agrapart

 

Minéral 2011 All Agraparts wines are without wood, personally I find his entry level champagnes (7crus and terroirs too expensive).his big Champagnes Mineral and Avizoise are at the top of the quality pyramid.

 

 

 

Pierre Legras Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2008 Good value producer

 

 

 

Colin

 

Millésime 2011 Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru

 

Blanche de Castille 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut

 

The Blanche de castille is ridiculously cheap but excellent, fresh and quite complex, our house champagne.
