In 2006, The Thomson Family at Best’s embarked on revitalising the sparkling wine production of years gone by in Great Western. Fortuitously, also in that year Edouard Huguenot, from the family Champagne house Huguenot-Tassin, worked the vintage at Best’s. An exchange of ideas occurred and led to a partnership project that has finally become a reality. We are delighted to announce that our ‘Partnership’ Champagne is now here for you to enjoy.
Situated in Celles-sur-Ource in L’Aube, Southern Champagne, Huguenot-Tassin are a small Champagne house that grows Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc. They are renowned for producing exceptionally fine champagnes that embody the flavours and aromas of the region. They use traditional methods along with rigorous selection and attention to detail to highlight the delicate aromatic characters of their champagnes and maintain the finesse and elegance through the palate.
Best’s Great Western and Huguenot-Tassin are both ‘Estate’ producers of premium wine and the synergies between the two wine ‘houses’ are the platform of our collaboration.
We are importing small quantities of our ‘Partnership’ Champagne as it is available and are thrilled that the first shipment has arrived in time for Christmas. Please note, as quantities are limited our special six and 12 pack offers below are only available until 31 December 2012. So stock up for your Christmas and New Year’s celebrations before this superb Champagne runs out!
