Why We Love It...

We’re kicking off this Monday with my Birthday Bubbles! What better choice than Grower Champagne from Victor Charlot – an exceptional new producer who continues to impress every time we pop a cork! 50% off is incredible on any Grower Champagne of this quality, but when you tack on a rather effusive 95 point review, things get even more enticing! Quality for value is off the charts with this one, and you can’t find it anywhere else in the USA!

Victor Charlot is the fifth generation of the family to forge the path of grape grower in the land of Moussy, just south of Epernay. He is only 33 years old, but has spent most of his life perfecting the craft passed down from father to son for over a century. He would say his style is found at the crux of guarding tradition and forging new paths, with a humble deference to all his family has achieved before him, and the confidence to believe that their success has yet just begun. He may not speak much English, and I, even less French – but the wine speaks the universal language of joy just fine! With Victor focusing on the wines, and his wife and business partner, Charlotte, taking care of the tasting room and sales – this duo has crafted something uniquely spectacular, and an absolute must-visit in Champagne.

This Instinct Premier Brut cuvee is a blend of 75% pinot meunier and 25% chardonnay, from Victor’s plots in Moussy and nearby Vinay, just a short distance to the west. This is a land where pinot meunier thrives like nowhere else on earth, lending the wine a power and playfulness that is quite unique, and a true wonder to behold. Fermented in stainless steel, and then blended and bottled for aging on the lees for a period of 30 months before a finishing dosage of just 6 g/liter to ensure everything stays bright and fresh. 

The finished wine appears as a delicate rose gold. The aromas are intense and elegant, with deep red rose petals, alpine strawberries, wild grass, and struck flint. In the mouth, barely ripe Tuscan melons and crisp Bartlett pears are joined by savory smoke and mineral elements, punctuated by bright interjections of red berry fruits and baking spices. The overall effect is one of casual elegance and joy – with a mixture of equal parts intrigue and drinkability at the same time. It's too fun to miss, and one you’ll want to open right away and celebrate with close friends! 95 points for a small production wine of this quality, at a price of only $35…this will likely move quickly!

About the Producer

Champagne Victor Charlot started back in 1877 with Edmond Charlot.  Today the house is ran by Victor Charlot and his family.  Dedicated to the land which extends over Moussy and Vinay, two neighboring villages in the Marne Valley.  Their vineyards are comprised of 70% Pinot Meunier and 30% Chardonnay and certified HEV.  The mission the family has set forth is to transcribe the character of each plot, vinify them separately and create wines that truly showcase the terroir.
