If you can find it, Filaine’s basic cuvée is pound for pound the best value in Champagne. Discuss.

Tiny production, organic, indigenous yeasts, no malo etc. Zingy green apple and lively acidity with some underlying creaminess, citrus and chalk. Thanks to Jeff Hellman at Transatlantic Bubbles for turning me on to this producer!

Very nice! Notes of tropical fruit, minerality and backed up by lots of acidity.

A Bollinger style wine from a former employee. Tried his wines straight from his garage and now having it on a beautiful marble countertop at la sirena. Super stoked to see such small producer on such a big stage. Yeasty, rich, and awesome. Psyched to see this wine getting around.

Every champagne lover should get to know Fabrice Gass! His tiny estate in Damery, Alexandre Filaine, was a great discovery for me this year. Age-old story of minuscule production, biodynamic farming, and upholding tradition. This older bottling of his NV was stunning and perhaps one of the best I've had recently. 2012 base, with some 2011 blended in as reserve. 2/3 Pino, the rest Chard, and a touch of Meunier. No dosage, no malo, and fermented in old Bollinger barrels - Fabrice's keepsake from his last gig. Elegant, with laser focus but impressive body. On the nose, super chalky, floral, green apples, pears, and brioche. The palate's incredibly vinous. A complexity that ebbs and flows, with a length that matches. Quite rich and showing some oddly fresh grassy tones. Citrus pith and really mineral on the back notes. What a joy to sip on!
