GSN Review: Champagne Telmont Reserve Brut

Founded in 1912, the Telmont Champagne House is located in Damery, near Épernay, France. Created in the wake of the champagne riots by Henri Lhôpital, a brave local winegrower, the House remains familial and visionary: Bertrand Lhôpital, Cellar Master and Head of Viticulture of the Telmont House, today represents the fourth generation. Commitment to the respect of its terroir has led the House to embrace a highly demanding environmental approach. In 2017, it earned its first AB Certification (organic agriculture) for part of its vineyard, proving once more the House’s vow to preserving the environment. The Rémy Cointreau group identified with the values of the House and purchased a majority share in October 2020.

GSN’s Remarks: Loads of bubbles with a straw-like color in the glass. The nose has a buttery, yeast laden, tree fruit, and marzipan quality. Nothing too complex, but lightly sweet, with some savory notes. Finishes with a medium long fade. A really nice and affordable Champagne. Cheers! GSN Rating: A
