I recently celebrated my 1 year anniversary as a small business owner (and no it’s not a wine/blogging business, this girl has other skills). Naturally I had to sabre the top off a Grand Cru champagne. It’d be rude not to when your business name is Grand Cru Digital right?
Definitely an intentional business name decision right there 😉
We picked up this bottle of Champagne Jean Milan Symphorine 2010 Blanc de Blancs Brut at Auckland Airport duty-free for about $100.
‘Grand Cru’ translates to ‘great growth’ and it’s a term used in Champagne to distinguish the best vineyards.
And ‘Blanc de Blancs’ means it’s made of only white grapes. Which in this case is Chardonnay.

It was the perfect tipple to celebrate my 1 year as a biz owner anniversary. I think we had it alongside a very un-classy bbq dinner.
In the glass, I found it a lemon-lime colour. Immediately as soon as I sniffed it I got a lovely lemon zest scent, with hints of musk candies, floral perfumes, and spiced apple – a fantastically complex and interesting nose! While in the mouth it has tons of juicy acidity that made me think of lemon juice squeezed over apples with a side of cashew crackers and a refreshing finish. Yumo! I’d by this Grand Cru again – maybe for my 13 month anniversary 😉
