My interest is to find vinous Champagnes that speak loudly of the terroir and the wine maker. Sure there are many nice correct easy drinking Champagnes out there. And most of the 4,000 growers make that genre of Champagne. That is not my interest. For me Champagne needs to be a ‘fine wine’ and sit alongside the great wines of the world. Texture, weight, finesse, length, elegance, minerality, complexity, balance, profound, subtle are just some of the adjectives I use to describe any fine wine. Champagne is no different and my quest is to find these for loyal Melbourne clients.
