ARTEIS & CO – CHAMPAGNE

Arteis & Co, a micro champagne concept focusing exclusively on Vintage Champagne with long aging before release.

Launched in 2013 by champagne professional Fabien Gay, Arteis produces just four vintage cuvees, sourced from only the best sites, from dedicated artisanal growers. “We have carefully selected first-rate artisans, who grow the best vines which give the best musts, which resulted in the most unique, complex and well-balanced vintages I’ve had the pleasure of working on.Fabien Gay

Arteis’ vigneron partner is Jean Diot. Based in Vinay, he has been producing champagne from his own house since 1960’s. He brings a deft hand to the Arteis team. Handled with the greatest care and expertise Arteis is packaged to perfection with the guidance of Artistic director Andre Saraiva. Arteis brings together bespoke craftsmanship and unique style.

Bright yellow-gold colour, lively with fine bubbles. The nose expresses scents of white fruits (pear) and yellow fruits (peach). Distinguish aromas of candied fruits, some nougat and hazelnut. This wine is complex and gourmand, on the palate it showcases a beautiful liveliness. Tense finale.’– Arteis

Light yellow color with hints of green. Lively with fine bubbles. The nose displays notes of flowers and elegant fruits (pear, apple), yellow fruits (peach) and some citrus flavors (orange and lemon zest). There are notes of evolution with subtle hints of hazelnut, praline and toasted bread. The wine has a round and full-bodied personality which gives it a graceful complexity’ – Arteis

Marked red-fruits aroma, lightly spiced, then something more exotic like mango – aromatically complex. Tastes very dry and a little saline. Long and extremely freshJancis Robinson
