Champagnes with no wood contact/barrique

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 2008 Grand cru extra brut

2006 Cuvée Nicole

Moncuit is for me an excellent producer, very fresh style, the 2006 Cuvée Nicole is from the same Cru as Pierre Peters Chetillon. They prefer not use the name Chetillons.


Champagner Prisme .15 100% 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

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

Agrapart. All of Agrapart's champagnes are devoid of wood contact

Pierre Legras
Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2011 Good value producer

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
