Champagne Bruno Gobillard – Pierry
The Gobillards have been growers since the 1700s, and Paul Gobillard, Bruno’s great-great grandfather, bottled their first Champagne under their own label in 1858. Today they own a little over 17 acres in the villages around Epernay, scattered over 27 different parcels in the villages of Moussy, Pierry, Epernay, Cramant, Chatillon sur Marne, and la Chapelle Monaudon. Bruno Gobillard took over in 1994, and has quickly risen to cult status among Champagne lovers everywhere.
He continues to use the old-school vertical wooden press, and sells off the grapes from his younger vines to keep the vine age and quality the highest for his own production. The wines get a minimum of 4 years on the lees prior to disgorgement, and are generally a blend of 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier, and 20% Chardonnay. His Vieilles Vignes bottling is revered as perhaps the greatest value in world-class Champagne – availability of which is of course extremely limited.

Bruno Gobillard NV Brut: If you imagine an old fashioned cream soda made out of perfectly ripe pears, fragrant apple blossoms AND the pure minerality of the chalk beds underlying this famous suburb of Epernay you’d be on your way to getting your mind around this stuff. The incredibly fine mousse, and endless echoing finish will make a serious impact on your guests or any giftee. Roberto Rogness, Wine Expo
