- Expressive and complex red wine made with pinot meunier
- Organically made using small oak barrels
- Pair with rare roast beef, crispy duck or an assortment of cheese
"Nose to die for with freshly crushed grape juice, complex notes of toast + honey, sweet spice. The initial flavours are of blackberry conserve with red berries coming through. The tannins as you would expect from this type of wine are dry and heightened with some raspberry tang.
Given some time in the glass the flavours open up to creamed blueberry and the tannins soften giving way to a light-to-medium body. This is a delightful Coteaux champenois and a food wine for sure" - Nesh Simic
Tasting note: Dense, savoury, velvety. Liquid Charisma! Grippy and concentrated and 'cool climate-lush'. Herbal forest floor-chalky cranberry-spiced red currant-licorice raspberry-pain d'epice, hints of earth and iron and spice and everything nice. Somewhere between Fleurie, Saint Joseph and Barolo. 93 points. Paired w/truffle brie - Champagne Spy
What is a Coteaux Champenois?
Well, there are four categories of champagne, which are;
- Clear champagne - sparkling which is the most common
- Rosé champagne - sparkling that is blended or macerated
- Coteaux Champenois - Still red, white and Rosé (as in Rosé de Riceys)
- Ratafia de Champagne - a still, sweet wine, similar to Port
We have chosen the Coteaux Champenois from Timothee as this wine is one of the better examples of this style if you have never had it before.
