    Champagne: Dumangin Fils. Extra Brut

    "Clean as a whistle and made from 25 per cent Chardonnay, 25 per cent Pinot Noir and 50 per cent Pinot Meunier, this is the perfect apéritif wine. The perky acidity and oodles of verve will slice through all number of tricky canapés, and it is a design classic with oysters. Fantastic value, too, Dumangin’s wines are all great value." (Matthew Jukes, Wine Correspondent for the Daily Mail).

Champagne - Buy quality Champagne from an independent grower

As we enter the 2nd decade of the 21st Century it is gratifying that there is an increasing interest in the provenance of our food and drink. Discerning consumers are no longer prepared to buy the output of agro-businesses blindly just because it is competitively priced; they want to know how products are made and by whom. This quest for quality is certainly evident in Champagne where demand for good ‘growers’ wines, made by independent individuals and not corporations, has never been higher.

Gilles Dumangin is a 5th generation wine-maker based on the Montagne de Reims in the village of Chigny-les-Roses. Gilles’ self-imposed remit is to make the best wines that he possibly can and not to release anything that he feels falls short of his exacting standards.

We are delighted that Gilles continues to supply us with our popular own label ‘Yapp’ Champagne.
