MULTIPLE GOLD MEDALS. AWESOME VALUE!
This is without a doubt one of the best value & multi gold medal winning champagnes available!
To find a champagne such as Delaplace under $50 which has won a Gold Medal four times at the NZ International Wine Show is extraordinary (2013, 2014, 2016 & 2017).
So what makes this champagne so special? The Charpentier have been cultivating their vineyard in the Marne Valley of Champagne for over eight generations. Since 1855 the domain duty of this champagne house, including values, winemaking expertise and precise vineyard management has been carefully passed down.
Comprised of 75% Pinot Meunier, 20% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Noir, Delaplace is made with the Traditional Methods of Champagne with the base wine going through secondary fermentation in the bottle for 3 years. The wine is then aged on its lees before being riddled, disgorged and topped with a dosage before being corked. The resulting champagne is truly exquisite.
Fine and lively bubbles contribute to the charm of this Champagne with fresh acidity, a soft mouth feel and gourmet exotic fruit flavours. The flavour lingers with a long finish of mandarin and cassis. Cellar 3 - 5 years.
