Champagne Collet Brut Vintage 2008

A rich bouquet of lemon and brioche with zingy grapefruit
and mineral flavours on the palate finishing on a
refreshingly saline note.
Producer Note
Champagne Collet with its elegant Art Deco packaging is evocative of the Belle
Epoque era from when it was established. It is the oldest cooperative in Champagne,
dating back to 1921. Since its inception, Collet has been creating Champagnes of
character with authenticity, elegance and great finesse. Located in Aÿ, in the heart of
the Champagne region, Collet represents some of the finest growers and mainly
sources from vineyards which are based on Premier and Grand Cru sites. Each cuvée
reflects the diversity of the region’s terroirs and has been masterfully blended to suit
gastronomic cuisine.
Vintage
2008 was initially a difficult year, with a damp spring resulting in challenging conditions
in the vineyards. However a warmer and drier August and a fine, warm September
helped to regain the maturation of the grapes and resulted in an excellent vintage. The
Champagnes of 2008 are classically styled with fresh scintillating acidity balanced by
powerful flavour concentration. One of the best vintages of the decade.
Vineyard
A balanced blend of 10 Premier and Grand Cru villages selected during the 2008
harvest. 50% Pinot Noir gives wine its structure, thanks to Mailly-Champagne,
Ambonnay, Louvois or Chigny-les-Roses Crus. 40% Chardonnay from iconic villages as
Vertus and Avize, brings richness, softness and elegance. The Villers-Marmery Premier
Cru completes the blend and adds a mineral dimension along with a touch of smoke.
10% Meunier rounds off the blend with richness and smoothness.
Winemaking
In order to give the wine even greater richness and complexity, the Millesime 2008 is
aged for at least 8 years in Collet's centennial cellars, dug deep into the chalk.
