Formerly labeled "Premier Cru Cuvee Selectionnee Brut"

Enjoy it now, or cellar for a few more years. No need to decant, serve slightly chilled.

André Chemin winery was founded in 1948 in the village of Sacy, Champagne. It is still under the guidance of the Chemin family, currently Sébastian Chemin and his wife Eva. After three generations, the family have developed an extraordinary skill for creating fine sparkling wines, producing a brilliant range of Champagne, mostly from the Pinot Noir fruit.

Although this grape is famously difficult, it thrives under the delicate touch of these experienced wine-makers, and in the mountainous terroir of Reims. The area surrounding Sacy village is one of Champagne’s few Premier Crus. The “Cuvée Sélectionée” is composed of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, sourced from 6.5 hectares of premium land.

It is a deep blonde colour, with hints of gold. On the nose, you will discover plenty of floral notes, wild strawberries and subtle spices, giving way to aromas of fresh brioche. Its bubbles are velvety smooth, but it maintains a fine acidity which gives a pleasant bite to the palate. Look for flavours of yellow apple, citrus fruits, toasted bread and whipped cream. The Cuvée Sélectionée is perfect for any occasion, and we recommend pairing it with fried chicken, sushi, or smoked salmon on a wholegrain cracker.
