Champagne De Saint Gall

Behind the De Saint Gall brand lies a history unique in the Champagne region.

Twelve production units, united for almost 40 years under the banner “Union Champagne”, have contributed to its creation and success.

Their trump card: an exceptional terroir in villages whose names are music to the ears of connoisseurs.

This precious heritage covers over a thousand hectares of Premiers and Grands Crus vineyards, all classified from 95 to 100% on the Champagne “echelle des crus” rating system.

It includes almost half the famous Côte des Blancs area, where Chardonnay reigns supreme, and some of the prestigious Montagne de Reims terroirs.

The De Saint Gall signature therefore quite naturally evokes the pure and elegant style of great champagnes.

Premiers Crus

The range of Premiers Crus that bear the De Saint Gall signature can be described as exceptional, since the very special geographic situation of the brand’s terroirs enables it to produce blends of an unequalled richness.

Grands Crus

The aristocratic circle of De Saint Gall Grands Crus now includes four Blanc de Blancs cuvées.
Produced from the finest Grand Cru parcels, these cuvées undergo micro-vinifications, and each has its own individual style.
The exception to the rule is the Rosé Brut, due to be released in 2004, which is exclusively composed of Pinot Noir grapes.

Philosophy

Its location on the greatest Champagne terroirs and
its pure, elegant style make De Saint Gall a champagne
for connoisseurs.

Over the years, this distinctive champagne has carved
a discreet but solid reputation for itself amongst a circle
of devotees.
The marketing policy of the house is in step with this image, the aim being to introduce the brand gradually, while taking into consideration the sensitivities
of the different markets.

De Saint Gall cuvées regularly win awards in international wine competitions, such as Vinalies, Chardonnay du Monde, the Concours Mondial in Brussels and the International Wine & Spirit Competition.

In less than five years, De Saint Gall has won about fifty medals, a fitting reward for its dedication to quality.

The 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.
