About the Wine
The Champagne house of Godmé was established in 1930 by Michèle and Bertrand Godmé. Sabine and her brother Hugues divided the 11 hectare estate in equal parts. Today Sabine Godmé and her husband Jean Marie Guillaume represent the 4th generation. All the viticulture here is sustainable and on average 30% of the primary fermentation is done in barrel. The estate is located in the heart of Montagne de Reims, specifically in the Grand Cru village of Verzenay. They also own vineyards in the Grand Cru village Beaumont-sur-Vesle and Verzy as well as the Premier Cru villages of Villers-Marmery and Montbré. These are Champagnes that allow the nuance of the Grand Cru and Premier Cru terroir to really be the focus and are not over manipulated.

 

60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir sourced from Grand Cru villages of Verzenay, Beaumont-sur-Vesle and Verzy; dosage 5gr/l ; primary fermentation 100% in barrel. 3 years minimum ageing on the lees.

Tasting Notes: Bright nose of apple fruit with pointed minerality, lees and hints of toast. Very compact with lots of precision and focus through on the palate, crisp fruit with some straw and toasted bread aspects. Complete and long finish. 900 BTL production.

Disgorging date: June 2018
