This absolutely delicious Champagne demands DRINK ME! Its beautifully spiced, baked Bramley fruit and delightfully creamy texture make for an utterly irresistible combination. The secret? Not only is the fruit of top-notch quality, but also Alfred Gratien Champagne is fermented exclusively in small oak barrels, leading to incomparably sophisticated, gentle-textured wine with wonderful integration of flavours. Beware – just one taste, and you’ll fall in love…
Very dry or dry. A full-bodied and toasty bouquet. Thanks to their rich spiciness and balanced acidity, these wines also make an ideal accompaniment to stronger dishes, such as pork, veal, game birds and seafood.
TIPS FOR USE
Sparkling wines and Champagnes are ideal for toasting, as aperitifs, for socialising or for serving throughout a meal.
HOW TO SERVE
Sparkling wines made using the traditional method are served well-chilled, at 8–12°C. Fresh, crisp sparkling wines are served slightly cooler, at 6–8°C.
A sparkling wine stopper will keep the bubbles in the bottle for several days, as long as the bottle is stored in the fridge. The fuller the bottle, the longer the bubbles will last.
Using a gel cooler stored in the freezer, you can chill a bottle from room temperature to the perfect serving temperature in about 20 minutes. In a large cooler or bucket filled with ice cubes and water, you can chill a bottle in 15 minutes.
