We were privileged to host Gilles Dumangin, the fifth generation winemaker at Champagne house Dumangin J. Fils, for an invitation only pre-Xmas tasting of the following selection:
- Dumangin La Cuvee 17 NV
- Dumangin L’Extra Brut NV
- Dumangin Le Rose NV
- Dumangin Le Vintage 2004
- Dumangin Single Vineyard Blanc de Blancs Vintage 2006
It was a quality tasting with all wines punching well above their price points. Of interest was the personal favourites selected by attendees with a good spread across the range – testament to the overall high quality standards of the house.
For me the pick was the Le Vintage 2004, but on what was a beautiful sunny and warm Saturday afternoon the Le Rose NV was in great form and an instant inclusion on the house drinking list. All wines from the tasting will be included as standard Winecall offerings (if interested please email to firstname.lastname@example.org).
