James Suckling "...Fantastic release...A dense, layered Champagne with a full body and lots of creamy texture. Lovely cooked apple and pie crust. 40% pinot meunier, 30% chardonnay and 30% pinot noir. The base was 2015, but in total it contains 10 harvests. It was bottled at the beginning of 2016 and disgorged in March 2020. Four years on lees. "

Wine Enthusiast "A sophisticated wine (a blend of the three Champagne grapes), this is a new release from this producer. It is dry, but the ripeness of the fruit offers a fine balance with the crisp, green-apple texture."

Wine Spectator "Firm and toasty, this tightly knit example features grilled nut and smoke accents that lace the crunchy pear and lemon curd flavors. Drink now."

Natalie MacLean "A crisp, dry, elegant Champagne from one of the region's (Champagne's) most respected producers. Notes of green apple and lime with a toasted bread finish. Pair with shellfish."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "Unwinding in the glass to reveal aromas of iodine, oyster shells, citrus oil and freshly baked bread, it's medium to full-bodied, racy and precise, with a taut, incisive profile and a mouthwatering finish. This is certainly dry, but not so austere as to render it élitist, and it has turned out well."

Jancis Robinson "Fresh, well-aged nose. Really quite frothy on the palate, I find. Lots of acidity. Clean and fresh and (just) broad enough to take it."

Wilfred Wong "Billecart-Salmon Brut Nature Champagne is at once rewarding and teeth-biting, as well as delicious and lasting."

Matthew Jukes "The tension and poise here are sensational..., this is a cracker."

A natural champagne made without added sugar

Billecart-Salmon is one of the few remaining Champagne houses to be owned by the original family and was established in 1818 by Nicolas-François Billecart. Most of Billecart-Salmon's fruit comes from a small vineyard holding, though this is supplemented with grapes bought in from the Marne Valley and the Montagne de Reims. Meticulous production techniques, from the use of their own cultured yeast to its long, slow, cool fermentation, ensure that the family has 100 per cent control of production.

Champagne is the most iconic sparkling wine in the world, produced in the region of Champagne in France. Synonymous with celebration, champagne is typically produced from a few specific varieties of grapes: pinot noir, chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier. With effervescent flavours of citrus, almond, and apple, champagne comes in varying levels of sweetness and has a moderate amount of alcohol. The most treasured Champagnes age for a minimum of 3 years.

The Champagne region is located 140 kilometres from Paris, France. While the vines in this region have been producing wine since the Roman era, it is only in the past couple of hundred years that winemakers began producing Champagne using méthode champenoise - the complex method that produces the style of Champagne the world knows and loves today. Another important component of the production of champagne is the chalk and limestone soils that dominate the Champagne region. Vines grown in these conditions result in wines that are high in acidity - a key component to making good sparkling wine. Champagne's northerly location - about as north as grapes can ripen - also allows for higher acidity and lower alcohol levels which are also very important for producing quality sparkling wine.

Decanter Magazine ~ Top 50 Wines of the Year

James Suckling "Outstanding buy with a whopping nine years en tirage, this has a super contained set of complex aromas - toasty yeast notes, grilled almonds and red berries all packed in close and tight. The palate revolves around a core of concentrated lemon drop flavor, and acidity is a leading element, holding the finish well. Superfine and super fresh for the age. Drink now."

Wine Spectator  "Fresh and lithe, this open-knit Champagne is lightly chalky in texture, with notes of white raspberry, piecrust, pickled ginger, and lemon zest."

Tyson Stelzer "bouquet is defined by lemon, with hints of honey and a note of orange. The palate adds butterscotch and ripe peach fruit, leading off clean and then quickly becoming savoury and secondary. The acid balance is commendable, keeping a short finish from becoming broad..."

Wine Enthusiast  "Ripe yet crisp, this is a fine reflection of the excellent 2004 vintage in Champagne. Ready to drink now, but it will certainly age."

Matthew Jukes "When I had the chance to taste Gilles Dumangin's new 2004 vintage, which I tipped off to by an eminent friend, I had high expectations. This is a large, but very good harvest in Champagne, but many wines lack drive and definition. Gilles has clearly endeavoured to make a memorable wine in 2004 because his version is nothing short of spectacular. The Dumangins have spent 350 years perfecting their craft in Champagne and there can’t have been many better wines made here, over three and a half centuries, than this one".

Julian Hitner, WineAlign ~ "Possessing marvellous delicacy and harmony, the 2004 Dumangin J. Fils will offer suitable satisfaction over the next six years or more.....Extremely graceful, stylish champagne."

Bob Campbell Wine Reviews (NZ) - "Rich, creamy wine with an impressive ethereal lightness. Wonderfully pure. Chalk, toast and hazelnut. Lovely acidity - not hard, accessible but gives backbone"

The New Zealand Herald (NZ) - From a vintage bursting with flavour this is drinking well now but will continue to develop. Its is a light, bright and fruity, a classic... by John Hawkesby Seen on the tables at Gordon Ramsay's restaurants and is Paul McCartney's favourite Fizz, its that good!

This is the best buy quality Vintage Champagne in Singapore, outstanding value!

J. Dumangin Fils are a small family-run Champagne House based in the village of Chigny-les-Roses south of Reims. Dumangin have a long history overflowing with fantastic winemakers, some with names borrowed from Greek legend. The first family member to turn his hands to winemaking was Firmin Dumangin, born in 1650. Hippolyte Dumangin, born 1851, was the first to market champagne under the Dumangin brand. Achille Dumangin named a variety after himself around 1909. Jacky Dumangin achieved fame for a Premier Cru Champagne which won an impressive number awards during his 30 years at the helm. The current head of House Dumangin has a disappointingly French name: Gilles. He is the 5th generation of the family to produce champagne.

The Dumangin family’s tireless efforts to produce the best possible Champagne from their own grapes was recognised by the prestigious French wine guide, the Guide Hachette des Vins, in 2008. The bible of the French wine industry awarded the Dumangin Grand Réserve a Coup de Cœur. The Coup de Coeur (judges' favourite) is the Guide Hachette’s highest possible recommendation.

Gilbert & Gaillard "Refined, open nose recalling apricot and blood orange. Wonderful mouthfeel combining fullness, mellowness and freshness. Precise, long-lasting aromas. Remarkably well-melted finish. A very compelling rosé Champagne."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "The NV Rosé Prestige Brut Premier Cru is a generous and well-structured blend of Pinot Noir (90%, from Vertus, the Marne Valley and the Montagne de Reims) and Chardonnay (Côte des Blancs) that shows a very nice, medium-intense salmon color. The wine opens with a delicately aromatic but also spicy-flavored nose of red fruits (raspberries, cherries) and reveals a delicate and fresh yet intense, round and elegant palate with a very fine mousse and a good, cleansing finish. There are juniper flavors in the long finish."

Wine Spectator "Balanced and creamy, this fresh rosé offers a subtle weave of white peach, biscuit, orange zest and strawberry flavors."

Wine & Spirits "This delivers a lot of fresh fruit through the lush feel of its bubbles, bringing scents of raspberry, plum and juicy pear up out of the glass. For all its generosity, the wine follows a clean, crisp line. It's a fine aperitif to serve with saucisson."

Duval-Leroy Rosé Prestige is made only from grapes with a Premier Cru designation and then aged a minimum of three years, a hallmark practice of the Duval-Leroy Champagne house. Made primarily from Pinot Noir with a touch of Chardonnay, this wine has alternating layers of light chalky texture and firm acidity with flavors of white raspberry, rich pastry, lemon zest and ginger.

Established in 1859, the House of Duval-Leroy is a six generation family owned champagne-maker. It is one of the biggest vineyard estates held by a single house. Vineyards owned in all of the villages classified Grand Cru of the “Côte des Blancs” and over 40% of total hectarage situated in Premier and Grand Cru villages.

CEO, Carol Duval-Leroy is the first woman to be nominated for the Presidency of the Association of Champagne Wine Producers Association. She was voted 'Most Influential Woman in Champagne' (Revue du Vin de France), 'Belgium Wine Personality in 2012' (VinoMagazine), and 'Top 50 of the Most Powerful Women in Wine.' (The Drink Business)

James Suckling "one of my favorite rosé Champagnes out there. I love the freshness and clarity in the wine, from its light pink color to crisp acidity and minerally, chalky character on the finish. It's full-bodied and dense yet agile with amazing length and beauty. Refreshing and vibrant. As it warms, it gives you delicate pinot noir character like Aloxe-Corton or another excellent appellation."

Gilbert & Gaillard "Beautiful salmon-pink hue. Extremely pure nose blending ripe red fruit and notes of blood orange. Simultaneously mouth-filling and ethereal. Long-lasting freshness enhances clearly-delineated aromas. Superbly classic style suitable for any occasion."

Richard Hemming "Lovely stately strawberry fruit, baked apples, brioche and spice. Invigorating acidity, beautifully soft fizz, very gentle and elegant persistence. "

Wine Advocate "The NV Brut Rose is a pretty, gracious wine. Freshly cut roses, red berries and spices take shape nicely in the glass as the wine shows off its understated, timeless personality. Billecart-Salmon’s NV Brut Rose is a reliably tasty wine."

Gilbert & Gaillard "Refined, open nose recalling apricot and blood orange. Wonderful mouthfeel combining fullness, mellowness and freshness. Precise, long-lasting aromas. Remarkably well-melted finish. A very compelling rosé Champagne."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "The NV Rosé Prestige Brut Premier Cru is a generous and well-structured blend of Pinot Noir (90%, from Vertus, the Marne Valley and the Montagne de Reims) and Chardonnay (Côte des Blancs) that shows a very nice, medium-intense salmon color. The wine opens with a delicately aromatic but also spicy-flavored nose of red fruits (raspberries, cherries) and reveals a delicate and fresh yet intense, round and elegant palate with a very fine mousse and a good, cleansing finish. There are juniper flavors in the long finish."

Wine Spectator "Balanced and creamy, this fresh rosé offers a subtle weave of white peach, biscuit, orange zest and strawberry flavors."

Wine & Spirits "This delivers a lot of fresh fruit through the lush feel of its bubbles, bringing scents of raspberry, plum and juicy pear up out of the glass. For all its generosity, the wine follows a clean, crisp line. It's a fine aperitif to serve with saucisson."

Duval-Leroy Rosé Prestige is made only from grapes with a Premier Cru designation and then aged a minimum of three years, a hallmark practice of the Duval-Leroy Champagne house. Made primarily from Pinot Noir with a touch of Chardonnay, this wine has alternating layers of light chalky texture and firm acidity with flavors of white raspberry, rich pastry, lemon zest and ginger.

Established in 1859, the House of Duval-Leroy is a six generation family owned champagne-maker. It is one of the biggest vineyard estates held by a single house. Vineyards owned in all of the villages classified Grand Cru of the “Côte des Blancs” and over 40% of total hectarage situated in Premier and Grand Cru villages.

CEO, Carol Duval-Leroy is the first woman to be nominated for the Presidency of the Association of Champagne Wine Producers Association. She was voted 'Most Influential Woman in Champagne' (Revue du Vin de France), 'Belgium Wine Personality in 2012' (VinoMagazine), and 'Top 50 of the Most Powerful Women in Wine.' (The Drink Business)

Champagne is the most iconic sparkling wine in the world, produced in the region of Champagne in France. Synonymous with celebration, champagne is typically produced from a few specific varieties of grapes: pinot noir, chardonnay, and pinot meunier. With effervescent flavors of citrus, almond, and apple, champagne comes in varying levels of sweetness and has a moderate amount of alcohol. The most treasured Champagnes age for a minimum of 3 years.

The Champagne region is located 140 kilometres from Paris, France. While the vines in this region have been producing wine since the Roman era, it is only in the past couple of hundred years that winemakers began producing Champagne using méthode champenoise - the complex method that produces the style of Champagne the world knows and loves today. Another important component of the production of champagne is the chalk and limestone soils which dominate the Champagne region. Vines grown in these conditions result in wines that are high in acidity - a key component to making good sparkling wine. Champagne's northerly location - about as north as grapes can ripen - also allow for higher acidity and lower alcohol levels which are also very important for producing quality sparkling wine.

James Suckling "one of my favorite rosé Champagnes out there. I love the freshness and clarity in the wine, from its light pink color to crisp acidity and minerally, chalky character on the finish. It's full-bodied and dense yet agile with amazing length and beauty. Refreshing and vibrant. As it warms, it gives you delicate pinot noir character like Aloxe-Corton or another excellent appellation."

Gilbert & Gaillard "Beautiful salmon-pink hue. Extremely pure nose blending ripe red fruit and notes of blood orange. Simultaneously mouth-filling and ethereal. Long-lasting freshness enhances clearly-delineated aromas. Superbly classic style suitable for any occasion."

Richard Hemming "Lovely stately strawberry fruit, baked apples, brioche and spice. Invigorating acidity, beautifully soft fizz, very gentle and elegant persistence. "

Wine Advocate "The NV Brut Rose is a pretty, gracious wine. Freshly cut roses, red berries and spices take shape nicely in the glass as the wine shows off its understated, timeless personality. Billecart-Salmon’s NV Brut Rose is a reliably tasty wine."

Billecart-Salmon is one of the few remaining Champagne houses to be owned by the original family and was established in 1818 by Nicolas-François Billecart. Most of Billecart-Salmon's fruit comes from a small vineyard holding, though this is supplemented with grapes bought in from the Marne Valley and the Montagne de Reims. Meticulous production techniques, from the use of their own cultured yeast to its long, slow, cool fermentation, ensure that the family has 100 percent control of production.
