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.


Gilles Dumangin

Gilles Dumangin

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
