2008 Alfred Gratien En Primeur
2008 is without doubt the finest Champagne vintage since 2002 and quite probably superior. Gratien produced a limited quantity of their 2008, less than their average. We have secured a sizeable allocation but still expect to sell out before the official release.

£200 per six bottles in bond
An outstanding vintage Champagne crafted from the best premier and grand cru vineyards. A traditional mix of chardonnay, pinots noir and meunier, fermented in small oak barrels then aged on its lees to add further complexity for around eight years. 2008 is a brilliant vintage, and the exceptional level of ripeness reached in the vineyards has resulted in glorious fullness and depth of flavour. What is remarkable about this wine, though, is its unusual – and wonderful – combination of richness and fine, crisp, refreshing acidity. A very special Champagne.
