The J Dumangin Fils 'Grande Réserve' cuvée is made from exactly the same grapes in the same proportions to our 'Champagne Yapp', but an additional year's ageing on the lees prior to being disgorged imparts extra flavour and richesse. It still carries the signature Dumangin clean, pure fruit character but is toastier and weightier and well-suited to all manner of canapés and party foods.Yapp Brothers were very glad to see that Sir Paul McCartney had the good taste to serve Dumangin Champagne at his wedding to Nancy Shevell: "Back at St John’s Wood, in the house McCartney has owned since 1965, guests were treated to vegan wedding cake and non-vintage Dumangin grande reserve champagne..." Daily Mail 10/10/11.
Grape growing in the Dumangin family goes back some 350 years - Firmin Dumangin (born in the 1650s) was a viticulteur in the neighbouring village of Ludes. Early in the 21st Century Gilles Dumangin succeeded his father, Jacky, and is a fifth generation Champagne producer. The Dumangin family’s tireless efforts to produce the best possible Champagne from their own grapes has been recognised by the prestigious French wine guide, Guide Hachette 2008, which has awarded the Dumangin Grand Réserve a Coup de Cœur.
Excellent web site excellent service The web site info is quite a change from Robin's articles in Dental Practitioner aons ago
I have not sampled any of this consignment but have drunk and enjoyed many bottles in the past
Dumangin champagne is the best! We have always gone to their premises in Chigney la Roses when in that area of France but ordering it from Yapp was so easy and delivery was good. Our daughter has been to Yapp and got Dumangin too.
Always very knowledeable and efficient
Good website could be easier but nort worried about that wine the most important thing not bad for a first selection!!
Delivered fast and well packaged
A nice touch to our wedding: something to show-off with a little bit! :)
Thoroughly enjoyed. First bottle of wine after Lenten abstinence!
Mierion is an excellent advisor on the wines Yapp Brothers offer, their storage, food pairings, and his customer service is second to none.
The Yapp brothers website is easy to use and should you need to click on the "contact" feature, the staff will respond to your question of request.
Wines were fabulous as always from Yapp, totally reliable independant merchants.
I would never spend this amount on supermarket wine.
Just a touch of buyer's remorse.
Our favourite Champagne
Always happy with our purchase of this Champagne
Excellent, reliable and swift delivery - used form overseas for pressies in the UK - great service
Matthew Jukes - Daily Mail Weekend 20/11/2010 says:I got married earlier this year and this was the wine, out of every Champagne imaginable, that I picked to drink on the day. Delicious, rare and delectable, Dumangin will ensure a romantic Christmas, and there are magnums available, too.
Julia Harding MW jancisrobinson.com says:25% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Meunier. Yeasty brioche nose. Rich, creamy and mouthfilling. Crisp and taut but with a seam of red fruit adding depth and power. Very good and not a wine to be ignored. Good food wine wth all that structure in harmony and great value.
Amelia Pinsent in Country Life says:This boasts depth of flavour and a full, almost creamy, finish. Unusually, it has 50% Pinot Meunier, giving apple and pear-blossom nuances.
Yapp Brothers are members of 'The Bunch', a group of Britain's best independent wine merchants.
