PRE-ORDER - ARRIVING W/C 23 NOVEMBER, 2020

Lifted yellow fruit, rich leesy character with notes of freshly baked croissant. The palate has a lively, linear acidity yet with roundness and complexity as it passes through. Overall a clean, creamy and mineral-driven wine with tonnes of expression and terroir-focus.

'La Grande Vie' is a collection of different designs: 'Mars', 'Venus', 'Reunion', 'Moon Vision, 'The Decadent Yard' and 'Trippin' USA'. Six in total, all created by artist Nicolas Maitrot, to celebrate life in six different ways. Choose your design below.

This special boutique champagne house, created in 2016 by young married couple Justine and François Petit-Boxter, produces around 1000 bottles a year.

Please note: Our most recent shipment does not come in a special edition box, but the cap foiling is themed accordingly.

Technical details: 100% Chardonnay from Grand Cru in Avize, 2013 harvest, with an addition of Vins de Reserve from 2004 to 2012. The tirage took place in April 2014 and the wine rested on its yeasts for 48 months. Low sugar dosage (extra Brut 6g/l). The Champagne was disgorged in December 2017 for only 498 bottles.

We are proud to introduce this boutique producer exclusive to Emperor - Domaine La Rogerie who are based in Avize. This husband and wife team François and Justine are leading the charge with their family's estate - Famille Petit Boxler founded in 2016. Both coming from a family of vignerons: François's grandparents bought their vineyards in Avize in the 1940s' and up to 2015 have been selling their wines, whereas Justine's family were established back in 1640 in the town of Niedermorshwihr in Alsace. They are passionate about soil and farming organically, with no pesticides, to recreate biodiversity and strengthen soil structure, as well as the encouraging the old vines to dig deeper. The vineyards were planted in the 1950's in the heart of the Côte des Blancs: Avize and Cramant, both classified as Grand Cru villages. Since 2000 they have started vinifying independently. Some Vins de Reserve have been added to create the first Cuvée: La Grand Vie.

 

Being a richer and more decadent wine, you can introduce earthy foods, like truffle, and mushroom. This can take form of a risotto, truffle fries or perhaps a fancy fried chicken. It's a knockout wine, you have been warned.
