The history of the Henri Mandois champagne house dates back to 1735 when the family acquired some prestigious vineyards in Pierry, a suburb of Epernay. It wasn't until 1860 that the founder's great-grandson, Victor Mandois, decided to vinify and sell the wines, and in 1960, Henri Mandois made the family brand into an international success.
Situated in Pierry, a suburb in Epernay, they own 35 hectares of vineyard which include those on the slopes of Epernay, the Côte des Blancs, together with the region around Sézanne constitute the major part of its vineyards spread amongst 12 different villages. Grapes come from famous villages and prestigious terroirs such as Chouilly, Vertus, Pierry and Epernay; and are made up of 70% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Meunier and 15% Pinot Noir. They are pioneers and the only champagne house to plough the soil in every other row of vines which lead to deeper rooting of the vines and allow a natural expression of the terroir. Vineyards in a perfect location, grapes produced with the greatest of care, meticulous blending work and prolonged ageing are the foundations of their winemaking philosophy.
Today we are pleased to offer their Cuvee Victor 2008 which is a blanc de blancs (100% Chardonnay) and made from grapes from vines of over 50 years of age in Chouilly and Vertus. These old vines provide the structure and balance between concentration and finesse essential to the creation of a fine Champagne; and in order to develop smoothness and complexity, a proportion of the harvest is vinified in oak barrels in the traditional method used by Victor Mandois over a century ago and aged for 7 years. The resulting Champagne is delicate on the nose and shows a creaminess on the palate created by its very fine bubbles, with perfect harmony and long-lasting flavours. Coming from one of the best Champagne vintages in recent decades, this is now available for order at as low as HK$338 per bottle if you order 12 bottles or more!

100% Chardonnay and 30% of the juice vinified in oak barrels, Mandois' Cuvee Victor received 10 years aging with lees. It reveals fresh lemon, brioche, toasty and pears nose. It expands in the palate with distinctly pear, candied lemon and smokey persistence, with a lingering and enjoyable mineriality finish. It has lovely concentration and intensity that reminds me of Krug’s Grande Cuvee. 93pts Decanter
