Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Reviewer, David Schildknecht - Featuring fruit from Verzenay and neighboring Verzy (hence grand cru-labeled) and vintages 2004-2008, Godme’s in large part cask-matured NV Extra Brut Disg. 3/2013 delivers a fascinating nose and mouthwateringly savory mid-palate and finish oriented toward salt and iodine; suggesting crustacean shell reductions; but accompanied by lusciously juicy fresh apple and grapefruit, as well as piquant hazelnut and almond. This doesn’t come off as the least bit too dry (at four grams) and its succulence of fruit persists into a long, saliva-inducing finish in which emerges an umami-rich sense of oyster liquor. I would expect wonderful versatility and even enhanced complexity over the next couple of years.

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Reviewer, David Schildknecht - With a three generation-long history of estate-bottling, the Godmes are well-endowed with 28 acres in a multiplicity of Montagne de Reims villages – half of that, surprisingly for this sector, planted to Chardonnay – and I tasted fewer than half of their range. Thankfully, that included an exciting mono-cepage, single-site trio launched just under a decade ago and now bearing its first finished fruits. Incidentally, after having “gone organic” around that same time, Godme recently announced their intentions to become certified biodynamic. Having never visited this estate, you may be sure I’ll be beating a path to their door in preparing for next year’s report.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous
Godme's NV Extra Brut Grand Cru is bright, focused and exceptionally polished from start to finish. White flowers, crushed rocks, grapefruit, lemon peel and mint jump out of the glass. The Extra Brut Grand Cru possesses tons of energy, precision and vibrancy, not to mention remarkable overall balance. Dosage was 4 grams per liter, just enough to soften the contours while leaving the wine precise and transparent. This is a fabulous showing from Godme.

Wine Spectator
Well-knit, crisp and focused, with rich blackberry tart, pear and candied lemon zest notes. The clean finish shows a hint of smoky mineral. Disgorged March 2013.
 
Winery Notes
Winery Notes:
Producted mainly from Pinot Noir grapes. This champagne is characterised by its superb balance and is huge finish with good aromatic richness and freshness on the palate. A lovely elegant champagne with good ageing potential. At any time, as an aperitif or during a special meal. For celebrations, birthdays, anniversaries or special occasions.
 

Additional Information

Region :
Champagne

 Famous for its chalky soil, Champagne is a cool forest region in northeastern France where Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are used to produce the world’s finest sparkling wines. Cool temperatures, persistent moisture and good soil drainage serve to produce the high acidity levels that make Champagne a great aperitif and match for many foods. The famed Champagne houses Taittinger, Moet et Chandon and Veuve Clicquot were founded in the 18th century and still operate today.
