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.
100% Chardonnay from the Premier Cru Village of Villers-Marmery (classified at 99%); dosage 8gr/l ; 50% reserve wine; 2 years minimum ageing on the lees.
Villers-Marmery is a Chardonnay-dominated village with chalky soils, and many experts believe that it would have been granted Grand Cru status if it had been planted to at least 90% Chardonnay when the Échelle des Crus classification was created in 1919.

Made from Chardonnay from the Montagne de Reims with 50% reserve wine, this is a very fine, balanced, and textured Champagne. It is fresh, floral, dry but never too crisp. The aftertaste leaves elegance and freshness. Drink now. ~93 Wine Enthusiast
