Champagne Review: J. de Telmont Grand Rose Brut

J. de Telmont

This Champagne is produced in Damery in the Marne Valley by J. de Telmont, one of the last Champagne houses to be family-owned and operated.

Currently the House is headed by Bertrand Lhopital. With his sister Pascale, and his brother-in-law Philippe, the fourth Lhopital generation is working to keep J. de Telmont’s rank among the 20th most important Champagne Houses in France.

Grape Varieties

85% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier

Alcohol

12%

Tasting Notes:

Raspberry pink hue with some light salmon reflections; long-lasting mousse with fine bubbles. The initial nose reveals citrus notes of grapefruit and lemon; on the initial swirl strawberry, raspberry notes emerge; in the mouth exceptional balance and finesse; long finish with hints of cherry.

Aging Potential

3+ years

Gastronomic suggestions

Aperitif, light entry of fish or crustaceans, light cheeses, desserts with red fruits
