With the super-friendly and elegant Delphine Vesselle at the helm of this quality champagne house, it’s no wonder bubbles are finding there way as far a field as Japan and the US. In the interview Delphine tells how she took over the house in her early twenties and was running the entire business which has continued to grow into a highly sought after international brand of grower champagne.

The wine we tasted during the meal was the Champagne Jean Vesselle, Cuvée Le Petit Clos, 2003. This was a record breaking year for heat in France and this south facing walled (“clos”) pinot noir vineyard in the village of Bouzy was especially warm.

A lovely strong gold colour matched with great full body and great fruit nose make this a perfect food wine. Despite this it still has that lightness we expect from fine champagne that left me longing
