An exemplary champagne brut for its category, with a greater emphasis on bubbles than wine. It has benefited from its reserve wine content and its maturation in cellars. Superb complexity that combines young aromas with notes gained through maturation in cellars.
List of products by brand Alfred Gratien
Sheltered from whimsical trends ,, Alfred Gratien champagne has remained loyal to its roots. For four generations now, the Epernay-based Jaeger family has been handing down the trade of cellar master from father to son, ensuring the Alfred Gratien style lives on. Century-old expertise, quality supplies, and 'sous-bois' oak vinification all contribute to transforming wine into a prestigious champagne brand name. The Alfred Gratien estate is home to 1.56 hectares of Grands Crus and Premiers Crus classified vines in the heart of the Côte des Blancs region. To make its cuvées, the house purchases additional grapes to use alongside its own. Around a hundred different grape farmers supply the house, and many have done so for generations. Loyalty, family spirit and mutual respect are core values in supplier relations. Classic brut cuvées remain here for four years, vintages for at least 10 and the cuvée Paradis spends six to seven years in the cellar.
