Boviere Grand Cru Champagne

The price list attempts to describe the various qualities of champagne which we sell. However, the best words in the world can't really compete with your taste buds and we hope that you will initially try what appeals to you, let us know what you think, and then make your way through the entire list. We could put together a mixed selection in cartons of six: please get in touch and we will try to provide you with what you would like to try.

Boviere Vintage champagne is only made in years when the grapes are good enough to justify the extra cost of Vintage registration, the special bottling and the costs of longer maturation in the cellars cut into the hillside beneath the producer's premises in the village of Verzenay. If the Bovieres declare a Vintage it is not a marketing exercise - it's a declaration of excellence.

The Boviere vineyard is very small and there is a finite amount of champagne we can import from them. Basically, when it's gone it's gone and we all have to wait until the next year's release which happens in May. If you would like to pre-order for a special event, please let us know and we will endeavour to put stock aside for you until you can take delivery.

A lovely, generous wine with initial nose of small red fruits and appealing bready notes. Tight, creamy mousse and a slight residual sweetness. A very pleasing champagne.

An elegant wine with initial citrus notes and a finely integrated mousse. Develops into a warmer palate, but nonetheless refreshing and with a good balance of minerality. An ideal aperitif, it will also suit lobster, scallops and crab particularly well.
