Champagne

By now, you may have heard the terms “grower Champagne” and “Farmer fizz” kicked around...but  you might not know what this means.  Quite simply, these are Champagnes produced by the same estate that owns the vineyards from which the grapes come.  This allows the estate to focus on the unique “terroirs” or characteristics of the village where they are located - instead of trying to produce a basic “house style” by purchasing grapes from many growers throughout the region.  We are fans of many of the big houses as well, but grower Champagnes should not be ignored as they represent an entirely different Champagne experience. They typically use lower dosage (sugar) levels, which means a drier style, and the wines tend to be a bit more food friendly.  Try a few different producers’ efforts from some of the different villages - you will be amazed at the differences in style and impressed with the consistency and complexity.
