This Premiere Cru Cuvée D. Blanche by Philippe Gilbert is made with 100% Chardonnay grapes, considered by the world's greatest tasters the champagne grape par excellence. Characterized by a unique aromatic intensity of its kind, it stands out on the nose with hints of white flowers, peach, and an iodized finish that smells of the sea.
The Maison Philippe Gilbert is a creature of Giulio Menegatti fruit of his love for France and for Champagne, to whom he has dedicated 35 years of his professional life, becoming one of the most accredited Italian luminaries on it. We find the traces of this deep passion in the memories of Giulio himself, who tells us how hard it's to hold back the emotion reached in Reims in front of the portal of the Cathedral dedicated to San Remigio, one of the greatest examples of Gothic style, embellished with painted windows by the Russian naturalized French painter Marc Chagall. From this passionate and exquisitely emotional approach comes the idea of dedicating the labels of each single bottle to a painting by Chagall, registering them at the Comité Interprofessionnel du Vin Champagne based in Eperney, in order to be able to freely market them all over the world.
As Giulio Menegatti says, "a great Champagne must know how to fly those who taste it, must possess body and finesse", like that cycling champion Philippe Gilbert, an example of extraordinary humanity, strength and elegance to which the name of the Maison is dedicated.
The Chardonnay grapes that give life to this Cuvée D. Blanche come from the hills of the well-known Cote de Blancs wine region, to be exact from the Premiere Cru certified villages of Oger and Mesni-sur-Oger. This is an area renowned all over the world for its Chardonnay grapes, of very clear cleaning and unmistakably typical aromas, thanks to the thickness of the chalky marl of which the soil is composed, among the deepest in the Champagne region. The label on the bottle is dedicated to the work of MArc Chagall "La Belle".
