The wine gift hamper for French wine lovers

The Sommelier Gourmet Gift Box

The ultimate gift for wine lovers. Champagne, Bordeaux' Saint-Emilion Grand Cru and Languedoc red: the finest French vintages in three exquisite Grand Cru wines.


 La Gourmet Box brings you a trilogy of exceptional French wines, ideal for accompanying a holiday feast (we're already thinking of Christmas!) or a simple get-together with good friends. Each of these wines has something different to offer: start off with a glass of amazingly fine Champagne Nature (zero dosage, meaning no sugar is added after fermentation), follow it with a red made by one of the wineries that has put Roussillon on the map, and finish with a splendid and, in our opinion, highly satisfying Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.


For wine lovers only.

Pinot Chevauchet, Champagne Brut Nature, Cuvée « La Généreuse » (75 cl)

DECANTER World Wine Awards 2015, Bronze Medal

Pinot Chevauchet Champagne Brut Nature Cuvee La Genereuse Family-owned winery : Champagne Pinot Chevauchet, Didier Chevauchet.

The Pinot Chevauchet vineyard lies on the southern slopes of Epernay, in the heart of Champagne country. There they cultivate the region's three most iconic grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir. The fruit is harvested by hand, and only the most perfect specimens are selected to ensure the highest standard of quality. In fact, this winery takes excellence so seriously that it refuses to sell a single bottle until the wine has been aged at least five years in its cellars.

Take a break from the classic brands and dive into "La Généreuse", a genuine artisanal champagne that critics are raving about (Revue du Vin de France, the Bettane & Desseauve Guide, etc.). The name says it all: this champagne is “generous” to a fault.

Three different vintages (2008/2007/2006) were combined in this coupage, where the Chardonnay plays a supporting role (10%) to the dominant Pinot Meunier (90%). The absence of dosage (a reserve wine mixed with pure cane sugar, usually added just before corking) allows the wine's intrinsic qualities to shine through: the nose is a burst of floral aromas and hawthorn with the Burgundy notes contributed by the Chardonnay. The mouthfeel is a perfect balance of mineral and fruity flavours. This Brut Nature champagne lives up to its name: what it lacks in sugar, it makes up for in finesse. Once you try this exceptional elixir, you'll never look at champagne the same way again!

Surprise your guests by serving it with a delicious plate of oysters or other fresh seafood.

Le Clos des Fées, Côtes du Roussillon Vieilles Vignes, red wine 2013 (75 cl)

The Wine Advocate 2016 - Vintage 2013 - 93/100 points - Bettane & Desseauve 2016 -Vintage 2013 - 16/20 points

Le Clos des Fees Cotes du Roussillon Vieilles Vignes rouge 2013 Family-owned winery : Hervé Bizeul, Le Clos des Fées

The history of this winery began in 1998 when Hervé Bizeul, a wine critic and sommelier who won the Ruinart Trophy at the tender age of 21, chose a plot of land in Roussillon’s remote Algy Valley and, together with his wife Claudine, decided to take the plunge and set out on a new adventure: winemaking. And so Clos des Fées was born, with the idea of making wine for their friends, for the sheer pleasure of it. They started out with no financial resources and built the domaine from scratch, but Hervé and Claudine's unique blend of expertise and passion soon brought them to the critics' attention. Their wines, initially made in a home garage, come from vines rooted in chalky soil in the heart of the most mountainous part of Roussillon. The first harvest was nothing short of miraculous, and the resulting bottles have met with brilliant success.

Today, a bottle of their best wine, "La Petite Sibérie", with the Côtes du Roussillon Villages label, goes for over 200€.

Clos des Fées wines have a strong personality, and every year the adventure begins anew with the utmost respect for the vine, the grape and the terroir. 

French wine country is not limited to Burgundy and Bordeaux: thanks to talented viticulturists like Hervé Bizeul, Roussillon and other terroirs are beginning to make a name for themselves in international wine circles.

The Côtes-du-Roussillon Vieilles Vignes Rouge 2013 included in this gift box is the perfect introduction to this impressive winery.

A marriage of grapes from the oldest vines on the property (between 50 and 100+ years old), this coupage is 50% Grenache, 40% Carignan and 10% Syrah. The slight deficit of Grenache is offset in this 2013 bottle by adding a little more Carignan, picked at the height of ripeness at the very end of the season, while the Syrah makes for a delicious texture. Aged 12 months sur lie in one or two-year seasoned barrels and finished with one part aged in traditional cement vats to preserve the grapes’ splendid fruitiness.

Aromas of red ripe fruit (cherries) on the nose, enveloped in an aura of freshness and subtle lactic hints. Full-bodied in the mouth, with a dense, creamy texture. Delicate and citric with a long fruity and floral aftertaste. A delicious—no, a splendid wine.

Château la Fleur Penin, Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2016, red wine (75cl, 14º)

1 star in the "guide des vins Hachette 2019"

saint-emilion-grand-cru-chateau-la-fleur-peninWinemaker: Patrick Carteyron, Château La Fleur Penin

Château La Fleur Penin is the fulfillment of an old dream of Patrick Carteyron (Château Penin), which he made come true in 2011 by buying this small property of 2.5 hectares of vines from 30 to 70 years old in the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation that he leads in sustainable agriculture.

And on this other exceptional vintage 2016, the result is superb!

This blend of Merlot (85%) and Cabernet Franc (15%) gives us a dense wine, rich on the nose with hints of ripe fruit and spices, already in harmony on the palate with a beautiful persistence, everything we love about a great Saint-Emilion. A delicious Saint-Emilion Grand Cru from today but which can also be aged for a few years in the cellar.

Obviously on a beautiful piece of grilled beef this great Saint-Emilion is a real delight!
