Champagne Pierre Callot Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs
Notes on the bottling disgorged in July 2013 | 12.5%
Scents of panettone –combining a brioche like dough with the scents of candied citrus rinds which echoes on the palate with talcy, starchy and a fragrant liqueur on the lifted finish unique to such Blanc de Blancs that unite Chardonnay with and really pretty Blanc de Blancs.
Wine review by Nicholas Livingston, September 2013

“A blend of the three Grand Cru of the house: Avize, Cramant and Chouilly. These parcels from the lower slopes face several directions. Wine fermentation is slow and natural. Fifty per cent of the blend is from wines that have undergone malolactic fermentation. Made mostly with young wines, it is nonetheless aged two to three years in our cellars. The finesse and lightness of this Grand Cru make it a classic that can be appreciated more as an aperitif or later in the evening. This is a festive wine par excellence. 100% Chardonnay (including 40% of reserve wine) from 40 year old vines planted to non-pebbly limestone soil.
Traditional vinification in vats, with partial malolactic fermentation yields Blanc de Blancs that is pale gold with fine bubbles and fine bead. Highly complex, extremely delicate, with aromas of sliced apples, citrus and candied fruit, this is lively with great length, flintiness and flavors of fresh grape-fruit. A wine with great freshness combining charm and delicacy. It will be perfect as an aperitif but also with seafood.”
Tasting note by Thierry Callot of Pierre Callot

Expert Review

GOLD | International Wine Challenge



Since 1784 when Louis Callot began, six generations have worked and passed down their vineyard in Avize. Pierre Callot created the mark in 1955 before handing it over in 1966 to the last of his four sons, Thierry. The family farm is situated on the Cote des Blancs, the kingdom of Chardonnay, with Grand Cru plots in Avize, Cramant, Chouilly, as well as Premier Cru parcels in Grauves.


Brut – Blanc de Blancs presents a finesse touching down delightfully on the palate, with a light quality but not without flair. The nose is floral and toasted. It is especially friendly on the palate and the finish.
