Champagne: Dumangin Fils. Brut Grande Réserve

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.

  • Style: White Wine, Dry (Sec), Full-bodied, Sparkling
  • Region: Champagne
  • Producer: Gilles Dumangin
  • Grape variety (Cépage): Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
  • Cellarage: A wine to be drunk within a year from disgorgement and final bottling.
  • Vinification: The grapes are harvested from 25-year-old vines and fermented in stainless steel and enamel vats. After the addition of a liqueur de triage, the wine then rests on its lees for thirty months before disgorging, which takes place approximately three months before the wine is ready for shipping. At this stage a final dosage (of sugar) dictates the dryness of the Champagne and the 'house' style. Rémuage (the process of moving the sediment to the neck of the bottle before disgorgement) takes place manually and on wooden stands.
  • Alcohol by Volume (ABV): 12%

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.

Thank you for your great feedback! It's great to hear from someone who has not only discovered but visited Dumangin!

Best regards, Yapp Brothers.

Wines were fabulous as always from Yapp, totally reliable independant merchants.
I would never spend this amount on supermarket wine.

What others think of this wine...

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. 17 Drink 2009-11

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.
