Elegant aromas of candied quince and subtle mineral undertones. The palate opens with flavors of fresh peach and orange zest that leads into a slightly roasted gingerbread. A crisply fresh and perfect aperitif choice.
Philippe and Véronique Glavier manage this small (4.5Ha) estate in the village of Cramant. This is a family run domaine; Philippe who studied in Avize, works the vineyards and cellar while Véronique manages the business. Véronique is the 12th generation of winegrowers in Monthelon, and as she was growing up she was categorically certain of one thing: She would never marry a wine grower. As fate (and life) would have it, she met Philippe, on a skiing trip in 1993 and he changed her mind. Champagne Glavier began in 1995. Phillipe used the cellars of Véronique’s family at first, until they were able to buy their own cuverie and build the press house and cellar. They were able to secure vineyards in Mesnil, Oger and Avize as well – in the last 20 years there has been a lot of work, and a lot of investment. Essentially this is a winery started from scratch. Today, they manage the estate in Cramant with holdings in Avize, Oger, Cramant and Les Mesnil-sur-Oger.
Glavier has 49 different terroirs over 4.5 hectares; each terroir is picked at optimal ripeness and vinified separately. The various final cuvées are assembled by taste and not by recipe.
Philippe and Véronique Glavier have assembled a small estate in the Côte des Blancs. This chardonnay, fermented in stainless steel, is based on the 2016 vintage, with 23 percent from reserves. It’s a wine of rich intensity in the middle, then lasting delicacy in the end, delicious in its ripe pineapple spice and toasty pine-nut savor. A pure expression of Côte des Blancs Champagne.
