Champagne Gardet

Anniversary Cuvée : … One Cuvee, 12 Harvests, 120 Years of History...

15 September 1943 ... after a particularly mild year with no frost, the harvest begins in Champagne ...


This is also where the story of this cuvee composed of 12 vintages begins. The blend brings us then in


1947, an outstanding year during which diseases seem to have spared the Champagne vineyards. The


ten following years have been selected afterwards to magnify this assemblage of a rare finesse, looking


back over the most beautiful years of Champagne, up to the 2011 harvest. This exclusive blending,


along with Maison Gardet’s know-how, make it an original and exceptional cuvee. Thanks to different


vintages and a knowledge passed down from generation to generation, this unique wine is well rooted


in the past and really enigmatic.


The robe is pale yellow, revealing silvery sheen.


The nose is fresh and intense, with floral notes.


The palate is lively and releases the


characteristic freshness of this wine, giving way


to candied lime aromas.
