Beautiful length and complexity on this champagne. A delicate nose of crisp green fruit meet a palate with ripe apple pulp and fragrant fruit and elegance of white flowers. Long lingering acidity to finish with a touch of salinity. A blend of 50% Pinot Meunier with 25% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir.

Fermentation in tile lined & stainless steel vat. Elevage - 36 months sur lattes

Champagne Hubert Paulet is a family owned domaine located in the village of Rilly-la-Montagne. Their 8 hectares of vineyards, which are planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, are classed as premier cru status, and sit on the north side of the mountain of Reims. The respective soil � variety profiles are such that Pinot Noir is planted to soils with a higher degree of clay, the Chardonnay to chalk, and the Pinot Meunier to sandier soils. The estate was founded at the end of the 19th century, and is being run today by vigneron Olivier Paulet, who represents the fourth generation at the domaine. The goal at Hubert Paulet is to showcase the particularities of Rilly�s chalky terroir by working the soil using only natural viticultural practices. One such practice, admittedly an unusual sight in the region, is to leave grass growing between his rows of vines up until harvest time. All of the fruit is hand-harvested, and fermented in both tile and stainless steel vats. Malolactic fermentation is carried out depending upon the vintage and particular qualities of the wine. The champagnes age sur lattes from 28 � 72 months depending upon the wine. Dosage, for both Extra Brut and Brut wines, are kept at a modest 9 g/L or less. The domaine presently sells off half of their grape production to Billecart-Salmon. With the remaining fruit, Olivier produces just under 2000 cases of Champagne Hubert Paulet.

Great wine and a bad surprise

Hubert Paulet is a champagne l like a lot and l was happy to find it in London too. Then l ordered online 3 bottles 3 weeks ago for my Birthday and when l discovered the shop is not so far from me, l want there myself, to be sure l will have that ontime to celebrate it. The 3 bottles were very good, as it should be. Ten days later, l wanted to buy 2 new bottles of the same one and l went there directly. Well, the price l paid was more then the 1st time: 7.00 pounds more for each bottle: l was not aware about that and moreover when l told them l found strange the price (92.00 pounds for the 2 instead of 78.00), they tried to say "impossible"... Well. in the last order, 1 bottle was completely acid, undrinkable, to throw away and the other one good. What to say? Be careful


Great service. Thank you.
