Gallimard Pere et Fils Quintessence Extra Brut NV

Didier Gallimard owns 10 hectares of prime vineyards on the steep slopes around Les Riceys in the southern Aube. Didier’s son Arnaud has joined him, becoming the seventh generation, and the long term future is now secure. His vines’ average age is over 30 years and the dramatically sloping vineyards, which are of chalk and Kimmeridgian limestone, are planted mainly to Pinot Noir and just a little Chardonnay.  Cuvée Quintessence’ is 100% Chardonnay, vinified for 6 months in two specially acquired 800ltr demi-muids. With 48 months ‘sur lattes’ prior to disgorgement and a dosage of just 5g/l, it is fine, elegant and precise.
