Airline pilots make surprisingly good wine. Their appreciation of the sciences, a respect for the weather and a bird's eye view of the land, all invaluable to the winemaker's art. John Ellis would take every opportune weekend away from his regular New York Paris route, to pursue a passion for viticulture. He planted the first commercial Cabernet Merlot vines in the Hamptons and found time between trans atlantic flights to work vintages amongst the Grand Cru vineyards of La Bourgogne. Ellis ultimately made the great lifelong sea change in favour of our land downunder. He settled on a farmstead outside Leongatha, amongst the slow ripening pastures of Gippsland and established a vineyard called Bellvale. It is now a place of fully mature vines and old world Burgundian techniques, sur lie et sauvage, barrel ferments and batonnage. Bellvale remains artisanally small batch, just..

Beginning with the Bouzy vineyards that originally belonged to founder Philippe Clicquot, subsequent generations, particularly Madame Clicquot, gradually built up the Veuve Clicquot holdings to create one of the most impressive estates in all Champagne. There are some five hundred hectares, half belong to Veuve Clicquot and over a hundred are owned by the LVMH group. The vineyards boast an exceptional average classification of close to 97. Vines are mostly planted to hillsides where soils are shallowest and exposure to the sun is at a maximum. Significantly, Veuve Clicquot adds only a light liqueur doseage during the wine's disgorgement, allowing full expression of the essential Veuve Clicquot style.
Pale gold, silver hues, brilliance, effervescence, a fine and long lasting bead. The nose opens readily, the aromatics are pure yet complex. Chardonnay contributes refined mineral character accompanied by pleasant floral notes of acacia, yellow fleshed fruit, marzipan and brioche. Silky and generous, a wealth of flavours, a deliciously long and powerful finish. Elegant, remarkably well balanced, the perfect accompaniement to refined cuisine.
