Gaston Chiquet Premier Cru 2009 Review

The Chiquet brothers, Fernand and Gaston, were among the very first growers in Champagne to take the initiative and keep their grapes to make their own product. They began their journey in 1919 and received their first medal in Pairs only four years later. Today, the Chiquet family owns 23 hectares and follows the region’s traditions to a T. This blend starts with crisp fruit aromas which evolve and serve up generous hints of honey and buttered croissants on the palate. The lively acidity keeps the intrigue high and the body light through the finish.
