    Photo by Sur La Table

    Last week, Sur La Table’s A Sharp Knife & Salt blog featured Fat Cork in their roundup of New Year’s Champagne! Author Jay Campbell tasted three Fat Cork cuvées:

    1)Pascal Redon Brut Tradition, an 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir blend noted for floral and fruity notes throughout with a crisp finish.

    2) Grongnet Special Club 2008, hailing from the Côte des Blancs region, this bottle is made by a producer that qualifies for the “Special Club,” meaning it comes from an exclusive club of Champagne houses selected by its peers.

    3)Didier-Ducos Rosé, a classic and aromatic rosé featuring hints of strawberries and cherries.

    We are honored to have been included! Check out the article here.

    Introducing Our Newest Grower, Adrien Redon

    Adrien Redon is the eldest son of Pascal and Pascale Redon. Like his father, Adrien doesn’t speak English, has spent his entire life crafting Champagne, and is hesitant to travel too fat away from the family vines in Trepail. Like his mother, he is an artist. Adrien has been part of the Fat Cork family since the beginning. We knew his dad already appointed him to the lead role of Champagne Pascal Redon, but it wasn’t until visiting the Redon family cellar in the fall of 2014, when Adrien called us over to open a box containing four perfectly chilled Adrien Redon cuvées, that we learned a new master had truly arrived. Like any great artist, Adrien didn’t want to reveal his works of art until they were ready, and we are so excited to reveal them to the USA! All of Adrien Redon’s cuvées come from the same family vines in Trepail, but they are painted with a different brush than he used for Champagne Pascal Redon. They are clear, fresh and precisely driven by bright fruit and very high acid. To the best of our translation, Adrien said, “These are for only professionals.” We love our growers!
