Why We Love It...

We’re back with another fantastic chardonnay-based Champagne from the fine folks at Glavier, and this Génésis is packed with depth, flavor, and a heady, strutting appeal. Flashy and classy in equal measure – this is a Champagne that announces itself proudly…and I am loving that vibe!

Philippe and Véronique Glavier have managed this small estate in the Grand Cru village of Cramant since 1995. Set in the Côte des Blancs, Philippe and Véronique both hail from winegrowing families, with Véronique standing as the 12th generation of her family from the nearby village of Monthelon. Philippe is the third-generation vigneron, who inherited a small domaine that now serves as their base. Over the years, they’ve built their holdings to a total of 4.5 hectares – with 49 different plots in Cramant, Avize, Oger, and Le Mesnil. Each plot is farmed and vinified separately, granting the pair a nearly limitless possibility of chardonnay combinations for blending. 

This 100% chardonnay, from 100% Grand Cru fruit in the Côte des Blancs is a full and weighty expression that takes the traditional minerality of the region and adds considerable amplitude all about it. The aromas are nutty and toasty with notes of almond, nougat, and lightly browned butter, and a perfectly crisp yet soft croissant right out of the oven. Golden apricots, peaches, white cherries, and baked apples, with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon, uplifted with a vein of crumbled chalk minerality that is essentially a requirement of Champagne from these incredible sites. Floral notes of rose petals arrive on the finish, with a lingering perfume that seasons the tongue long after the sipping is complete.

This 100% chardonnay is based on the 2018 vintage, with the remainder comprised of the estate reserve wine. The wine ages for some 54 months on the lees, followed by a 3 grams per liter dosage, during disgorgement in February 2022. Mostly Le Mesnil fruit, followed by smaller amounts of Avize, Oger, and their home base of Cramant. This is exceptional in every possible way – and our only wish is we could have got more! Best price in the country on the USA means this should fly out the warehouse…do what you must to ensure a bottle or two is headed your way!
