Hugues Godmé

"Godmé is one of the finest estates in the northern Montagne de Reims, producing champagnes of uncommonly vinous depth and expression."

Peter Liem - The Champagne Guide
See Liem's full report below.

Hugues Godme's wines comprise an unusually high proportion of chardonnay given his location on the Montagne de Reims, which is otherwise generally pinot-country. But Godmé's approach is all about expression of terroir and vintage rather than a consistent style or signature. He is not bound by the convention, instead he blends each release to an ideal expression of the parts, and is not afraid to draw on a broad palette of well-aged reserve wines to get the final composition just right. 

We are very pleased with these wines and recommend them highly. They offer remarkable value at our very competitive prices


Hugues Godme Brut Reserve - $45 per botttle
"The non-vintage Brut Réserve is composed of 50 to 60 percent chardonnay, depending on the year, with about 15 percent of pinot noir and the rest meunier. It contains an unusually high proportion of reserve wines, generally around 50 percent, and these come from the previous two or three vintages. This is a rich, boldly-flavored wine that often emphasizes its red-fruit flavors, despite its high chardonnay content, and its body and depth make it a good champagne for the table.". - Peter Liem

Huues Godme Extra Brut - $49 per bottle
"One of the finest wines in the portfolio is the Extra Brut, blended from four different vintages and dosed at 2 to 4 g/l. It’s grown in Verzenay, Verzy and Beaumont-sur-Vesle, and it’s typically 60 to 65 percent pinot noir, with the rest chardonnay. Godmé describes this wine as combining “the body of pinot noir and the length of chardonnay,” and to this I would add that it expresses the complexity and finesse of its terroir as well." - Peter Liem

Hugues Godme Brut Rose - $49 per bottle
"Not to be overlooked is Godmé’s delicious rosé, which is made largely from pinot noir, blended with 15 to 25 percent of chardonnay. It’s composed of three or four different vintages, and like the estate’s other non-vintage wines, about half of it is made up of reserve wines. It comes entirely from grand cru vineyards, including a small proportion of red wine from Verzenay, and while the pinot noir gives it vinosity and depth of flavor, it remains a delicate, subtle champagne, reflecting the discreet character of this northern terroir."  - Peter Liem
