Champagne Collery Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru NV


Champagne Collery is located right near Epernay, on a magnificent hillside backed by the mountain of Reims, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are 360 hectares of vines planted mainly with Pinot Noir grapes, presenting a great diversity of exposures and elevations.

Their Champagne Grand Cru vineyard is rich in minerals, and is composed of clay on the top of the hillside and chalk in the steeper areas. It’s the ideal terroir for creating rich, aromatic and elegant Champagne which Collery does to perfection with an unmistakable minerality to their bottlings.

Collery champagnes are only Brut and Extra-Brut champagnes and their made to perfection. This non-vintage Blanc de Blancs bottling is the perfect example. It beat out a number of historic vintage releases from the likes of Moët & Chandon, Tattinger and more. It received a ‘Best in Show’ designation as the top non-vintage Champagne and was given 97 points, cementing its place amongst the finest in the region.

Expert Reviews

97 Points, Decanter (Best in Show)
In contrast to our Best in Show Vintage Champagne, this non-vintage Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs is clearly a youthful wine – but one with impressive potential. Pale and fine-beaded, its taut, mouth-watering scents of ivy leaf, plant sap, green apple and green grape contrive to suggest both exceptional vineyard origins but also a relatively low dosage. On the palate, the wine is pure, deep, vinous and driving, with fine-bladed intensity. Pristine, structural acidity carries it towards a high-focus, faintly saline finish, once again suggesting soil, stone and fruit rather than yeast and a concluding liqueur. Yes, it’s young, but you could age this pure, refined Blanc de Blancs for up to a decade (if you have cool cellaring conditions) to great benefit
