6x Champagne Jean Laurent Blanc de Noirs
In Autumn 2013, wine buyer Damian Sanchez was on a wine tasting trip in Belgium when he came across this Blanc de Noirs from the little known producer Jean Laurent. Damian was blown away by the complexity, the unique dryness, golden straw colour, fruit and overall elegance for such a reasonable price.
He paid a visit to the vineyard immediately. What he found was a RM "Recoltant Manipulant" (the French term for Grower's Champagne) using 100% Pinot Noir exclusively from his own vineyards, that alone a rarity in bottles other than far more expensive labels. The exclusive use of Pinot Noir is what gives Jean Laurent Blanc de Noirs its personality, colour and fantastic pairing with food.
D.S.: "After my visit I decided to agree an exclusive deal to supply Gauthier Soho and immediately made it our House Champagne. This has proved a wise decision, as our loyal customers have told me time and time again. Now finally I'm excited to have agreed for the first time in the UK, a special deal with Mr Laurent himself to supply a limited quantity of this fabulous Champagne to our customers for home enjoyment."
"Gold. Light. Eternal. Ephemeral. These describe the Champagnes of Jean Laurent. Jean's family has been growing wine in the village of Celles-sur-Ource for more than 1,000 years. The estate is situated in the Aube, an outlying Champagne district south of Marne that shares the same chalky soils as the heart of Champagne and Chablis." - Hand Picked Selections
"Laurent is a prime example of how deeply traditional work and a fanatical devotion to quality can result in distinctive Champagnes of individuality and character.” 90 pts. Tanzer
