An incredible price on proper Vintage Champagne! Jancis Robinson calls 2012 an "exceptional" and "exemplary" vintage in Champagne, with low yields and beautiful fruit quality. Beaumet is our own import and it's stunning stuff, made by the famous Laurent-Perrier house - it is the real deal just half the price of the competition (Taittinger Vintage $110, Bollinger Vintage $180, etc). Super-elegant with a fine texture and light, balanced breadiness and minerality: this is Vintage Champagne for cheaper than Non-Vintage! Gorgeous.

Its Origins

In 1878, the Beaumet family, originating from Epernay, created their own champagne company. At the turn of the 19th century, they left their establishment in Pierry and set up in Chalons-en-Champagne to accommodate their swift development. The Company thus acquired a loyal clientele, mainly in France and Belgium, thanks to the champagnes that it was making from its own vineyard. In 1977, Champagne Beaumet was taken over by Jacques Trouillard, member of a well-known champagne vineyard family. Its development could then be based on the stable supply of high-quality grapes thanks to the contribution of the Trouillard family vineyard, followed by those belonging to numerous partner vine-growers. In 2004, Beaumet became part of Groupe Laurent-Perrier. "Beaumet Champagne’s reputation rests largely on its following around the clubs and restaurants of London. Bang-for-buck is important in these markets, and Beaumet’s wines consistently over-deliver in value for money. The 140-year old Beaumet cellars are in Épernay and these days have the same ownership as the famous Laurent-Perrier Champagne house. Laurent-Perrier’s winemaking team are also responsible for these more low-key Beaumet wines, a guarantee of high standards." Cuisine

What The Critics Say

5 Stars Best Buy Cuisine (previous release vintage)

"A bargain-priced wine that shows you don’t have to spend big to get vintage Champagne of style and personality. Aromas of white flowers, peach and citrus with light praline and mushroomy complexities track through a rounded, creamy palate of elegance and charm."
