Bonjour Champagne lovers! 

We believe all of the Champagne we import deserves a spot on the red carpet! But, in the spirit of the Academy Awards, we wanted to recognize a few that are especially impressive. 

If these bottles could talk, they would thank you for all of your support in their bubbly careers.

Cheers!
Team Fat Cork

Best Picture of the Year

Gimonnet-Oger Blanc de Blancs Millésime 1996 / $159

Produced from the chalky soils of the Côte des Blancs region, this cuvée has been aging in Jean-Luc’s cellars for 18+ years! This Champagne is sure to become the Clint Eastwood of your collection, guaranteed to “make your day”. It’s magnificent right now, but will also age under cork for years to come.

Red Carpet Stunner

Grongnet Carpe Diem Extra Brut Rosé de Saignée Magnum / $188

This voluptuous bottle is sure to delight both your eyes and your mouth! The body of the wine, soft and smooth like silk, liberates itself progressively as the wine warms in the mouth. Ooh la la! It’s bold, it’s pink, and it sachets across your palate.

Best Leading Actress

Jean Baillette-Prudhomme Memoris / $69

Laureen Baillette is a true star hailing from the Montagne de Reims region. At only 29 years old, Laureen runs her family’s operation with her mother and sister, producing her cuvées on a pink wooden press. This particular cuvée is Pinot Noir based and aged for 7+ years in the bottle. It’s rich and bold with great acidity.

Best Costume Design

Hervy-Quenardel Blanc de Blancs 2000/ $96

You can’t always judge a bottle by its label, but in the case of this cuvée, the beautiful painted bottle is equally as wonderful as the bubbles inside. There are less than 100 bottles left in the world; we were lucky enough to import 12 last year.
