Dumont Champagne Brut Tradition

Champagne's Greatest Value: R. Dumont Champagne Brut Tradition

The greatest Champagne value in the world is back, and it's better than ever. While travelling in Singapore, I had a couple bottles of Veuve Clicquot at Chinese New Year's celebrations, and I can say with 100% certainty that the Dumont is better...in my opinion.

For fans of richer and balanced, Pinot Noir-driven Champagnes, this is the ticket. Broad, ripe, and layered, this is the ticket.

Like Veuve Clicquot? Try this, it's better!   

The Dumont family have farmed vineyards in the Aube district of Southern Champagne for over 200 years. Up until the 1980’s, the family simply grew grapes and sold them to the larger Champagne houses. Today, the three Dumont brothers continue to sell their grapes, but they also estate-bottle their own wines. We are so glad they do!

Their Brut Tradition is composed of 90% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay. The combination of Aube’s warmer temperatures along with its chalky, clay soils result in richer and more sumptuous wines with rounder and softer textures. 

Because the Dumonts spend zero dollars on marketing campaigns, this sells for such a great price. This is completely counter to the "situation" found with the larger producers. These bigger producers buy grapes from folks like the Dumonts, but then they spend millions on marketing in magazines and periodicals worldwide. Guess who ends up paying for their marketing dollars spent? You do!

This smells grand with its notes of ripe citrus, spiced apple, rhubarb, and caramelized peach. As it gets more air and temperature, more complex notes of brioche, vanilla bean, and mineral emerge. Despite its richer, rounder profile, it is decidedly dry and zesty on the palate.

Simply put, this easily competes with and qualitatively destroys Champagnes from larger houses that cost twice the price. If you love Pinot Noir-driven Champagnes like Veuve Clicquot, go ahead and get a six-pack and save a bunch of money. This is a year-in and year-out top seller, so I wouldn't wait too long to place your order.
