    The Brochet family held back a tiny amount of their great 1996 vintage for extended lees ageing, and this has more than fifteen years of time on the yeast. It is composed of half each Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and is a great example of this classic Champagne vintage. Not only is broad and phenomenally toasty, it is etched with minerality and has an unstoppably long finish. Sadly, only three cases were made available to us, so by the time many of you read this, it might already be gone.

    Flinty with great minerality and tiny, almost prickly bubbles, Louis Brochet "Cuvee HBH" 1er Cru shows bracing acidity and hints of lemon with some tertiary notes - mainly toasty brioche - already developing. Racy but with a decadent, creamy finish, the 1996 Brochet didn't stay on our shelves for long, so if you ever find it in stock, do not hesitate!
