“NEW WAVE CHAMPAGNE” TODAY IN LONDON!

June 6, 2017, Christian Holthausen

Today marks the occasion of the second edition of “New Wave Champagne” in London at 67 Pall Mall.

According to 67 Pall Mall: “The top small ‘growers’ (single estate RMs) and an elite group of small boutique houses (NMs) are making more intense and ‘terroir-expressive’ fine wines. A paradox of modern Champagne is that some top producers are unknown to many fine wine enthusiasts yet have much in common with other starrier names. These producers share an artisan and independent family pride, as well as a determination to transform viticulture and winemaking in Champagne. So what is all the fuss about? It is often said that unlike the larger marques that blend grapes from many locations to create their blend, the top RMs (Récoltant-Manipulant) and smaller NM (Négociant-Manipulant) champagnes offer a precise expression of terroir. They share a desire for purer grape-growing with deeper roots to give more intense flavours, riper and more creative champagnes. However it is the directness of the relationship of what is in the glass via the winemaker to the terroir (that is often family owned) that typifies these producers. We have combined famous family houses, elite growers and a few ‘rising stars’. They are proud to show together, believing they share more than some think and that high quality can come from growers and houses alike.”
