History

The history of Union Champagne owes much to the past generations of growers who, even before the group was created, were dedicated to preserving their exceptional terroirs. From the grower, passionate about his grapes, to the cellar master, the slow genesis of a great champagne is ensured. Altogether, over 2,000 people participate in this great adventure.

Vineyards

De Saint Gall's main source of pride is its incomparable position on the famous Côte des Blancs, the most elegant of the Champagne terroirs. The Premiers and Grands Crus villages are spread out over a superb chalky terroir that enables the vines to burrow their roots deep down into the soil.
Here, Chardonnay is king, reaching its most sublime expression and producing racy, long-living champagnes.
Four of the most renowned Montagne de Reims villages complete the vineyard holdings, bringing their roundness and unctuosity to certain cuvées in the range.

Winemaking

The terroir is the first component in the alchemy that goes into making champagne. Maintaining this heritage is above all a question of respecting the traditions that have made this terroir unique in the world.

It is also about integrating new technical advances, such as “viticulture raisonnée”, monitoring the parcels, and controlling vineyard health.

The weather gods were in their best mood in 2008 vintage, and the vines remained unusually fresh from the attack and gave a very good harvest- ing. An absolutely gorgeous vintage that has it all!


Best vintage since 1996, and unlike the tart 1990s, there are wonderful wines directly with their delicious fruit intensity and match- less balance. All the ones I tasted from the vats are magical, and I have a hard time imagining nothing other than buying everything you see of this vintage. So far the leaders are Diebolt- Vallois eur de Passion ahead of Vouette & Sorbée and Michel Turgy, but many giants will surely win over them.

 Juha Lihtonen, Sommelier (Finland)  tasted  1 wines  from  De Saint Gall . In a tasting of  58 wines 

“Astonishing tasting of the best champagne of the decade '90s. So great champagnes in perfect condition to be enjoyed today but which hold extremely well decades to come! It was a tight battle of the 1st place. On my rankings there were two winners - Dom Pérignon P2 1995 and Cristal 1996. Both were amazing 98 points champagnes! The biggest surprises were Besserat de Bellefon 1998 and once again Palmer&Co champagnes with their charming quality and consistency.”

 Pekka Nuikki / Founder of the Fine Wine Magazines, Pro (Finland)  tasted  1 wines  from  De Saint Gall . In a tasting of  24 wines 

“Philipponnat Clos des Goisses 2002 - Moderately pale yellow colour with lively bubbles. Rich is the nose as well, with ripe fruity and toasty aromas that set this wine’s nose near perfection. Very rich, round and ripe taste is enhanced by monumental acidity. Promising youngish wine with great harmony. Great future ahead although very enjoyable already now.”

“Champagne is exciting, especially when it comes to slightly riper styles. A dinner in Essen displayed a huge array of different Champagne styles and was a proof for the great quality, the complexity and the diversity of this wonderful region. ”

 Richard Juhlin / The number One champagne expert in the world, Pro (Sweden)  tasted  1 wines  from  De Saint Gall . In a tasting of  77 wines 

“The best Champagnes from 2002 vintage: As in Bourgogne, this is a beautiful and generous vintage with a bright future in store. It
is the rst time that I start to feel a tad old in the game. Because I have tried the vintage before in my life! Yes, the 2002 is so strikingly similar to the 1982 that I think I can predict the vintage’s whole life curve. I believe in a very linear curve without ups and downs. The wine will eventually become more buttery and fatter, with a relatively high acidity, and it will do its job in silence. The wines will reach their top at twenty to thirty years of age. Most promising
so far are many growers such as Egly-Ouriet, Michel Arnould, Pierre Gimonnet & Fils, Jacques Selosse, and Diebolt-Vallois. Amour the Deutz, Piper-Heidsieck, Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Blanc de Blancs, and Louis Roederer Cristal are pure nectar, but the most intellec- tually challenging are Jacquesson’s vineyard wines Champ Cain and Vauzelle de Terme.”
