The maison Gardet, founded at the end of the 19th century, is established at Chigny les Roses in the Premier Cru terroir of the Montagne de Reims. Gardet have a wide range of champagnes divided into three main families: Les Traditionnels with variations of the fruity and fresh Brut Tradition, a Rosé, and most particularly a Brut Premier Cru of remarkable finesse and virtuosity, Les Réserves, more characterful and vinous due to a partial passage in oak, and the Prestige range composed of two extraordinarily powerful cuvees created in homage to Charles Gardet, the founder of this champagne house, plus a gourmand and ample free-run vintage Rosé.
