The Roland Champion new release tasting pack contains
2 x Roland Champion Carte Blanche Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs NV
Still very youthful and tightly coiled with layers of citrus and white floral notes. Showing tangy lemon, freshly baked bread, layers of spice with a mineral edge which expand and open in the glass. A wonderful aperitif style but has the stuffing to match with a multitude of dishes. With the Australian Summer upon us, what could be more suitable than a vibrant blanc de blancs! 100% Grand Cru (Chouilly) Chardonnay. The base wine is 55% from 2014 with reserves consisting of 25% from 2012 and 20% from 2013. 30 months on lees, disgorged April 2017. Dosage 6gm/ltr
3 x Roland Champion Carte Noire Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs 2008
The highly anticipated 2008 release from Roland Champion is everything you’d expect from this much touted vintage. Wonderful structure and depth with layers of floral, citrus notes that continue to unfold in the glass. Possessing a creamy, textural mouthfeel with a beautiful spine of mineral acidity that will see this wine evolve for years to come. Wonderful drinking, giving immense pleasure that it is hard to ignore. I look forward to seeing the wines evolution, but suspect the temptation to just open and enjoy will simply be too hard to resist! 100% Chardonnay from Chouilly (Grand Cru), 8 years on lees, dosage 5gms/ltr.
1 x Roland Champion Special Club 2011
100% Chardonnay from their oldest vines in the grand cru of Chouilly. The selection of fruit for their flagship release is always the finest and the care and attention paid to detail ensures that is is of a ‘Special Club’ release standard. Critics can often make sweeping generalisations of vintages and certainly 2011 was a difficult year. However, the reputation of producer is always more important than year, and this is a great example of where the pursuit of quality has overcome adversity. Pristine fruit balanced by refreshing mineral acidity with depth of character and style. Only a very small production and a credit to the care that Champion family give to their wines.
