Hugues Godme N.V. Rose Brut Grand Cru, Champagne
Hugues Godme is considered, within Champagne, one of the most passionate and respected growers in the business. His wines are certified biodynamic and only natural yeasts are used. I find the wines from this estate to have a certain regality to them and this super dry Rose is no exception. Deeply aromatic but more floral than fruity. On the palate there is just the tiniest of bubbles that dance across the tongue leaving in their wake a shimmer of fresh apple skin and pie crust. Loves dark meat poultry, salmon and shines with salty and briny foods.
Hugues Godme is the 5th generation in his family to produce Champagne in the Grand Cru village of Verzenay. He owns and works 8 hectares of vineyards, divided between the villages of Villers-Marmery, Verzenay, Ville-Dommange,and Verzy. His site is both certified Organic and Biodynamic.
