Welcome to the exciting world of grower champagne.
It was our introduction, in the early nineties, to Laurent Champs, who now runs Champagne Vilmart, that made us realise that there's more to Champagne than the big names that we're all so familiar with.
At around the same time, my brother, John Trigwell, of Tanglewood Wine Tours, was taking groups of wine lovers to Champagne Larmandier Bernier, in Vertus, a Premier Cru village in the Cote des Blancs area of Champagne. Pierre Larmandier was President of a group called the 'Jeunes Viticulteurs de Champagne' and it was he who recommended John to Christophe Mignon, Shortly after this, when Pierre was away in Italy and unable to host a tasting for John, he recommended Pascal Doquet, another Vertus winemaker.
Our knowledge of these champagne growers, and the quality of their products, encouraged us to start an online shop where we could showcase their wines. We felt that, in the same way that twenty years ago, when the UK public knew Champagne as a drink which was perceived to be produced only by a small number of big, well known names, today, even as small growers are becoming more well known, people are aware of only a few of them.
So please don't make the mistake of thinking that there are but a small number of quality grower champagnes out there. They just haven't all been discovered yet!
