Hong Kong is one of the strongest Champagne markets in Asia but currently dominated by the Grand Marques who saw their opportunity to come into the market once the tax on wine was removed in 2008.

However, with natural wine bars and bars serving fine wine by the glass, as well as specialist Champagne and biodynamic wine importers such as Champagne Asia and the Bacchus Club, Grower Champagnes are defiantly commanding a progressively stronger following.

  1. Some wonderful champagnes on this list and it’s great to see them getting the recognition they deserve, but in my view, classifying Philipponnat or A R Lenoble as Grower Champagnes is debatable to say the least. Philipponnat is, I believe, part of the BBC group and is also listed as one of the members of the Union des Maisons de Champagne; so too is A R Lenoble. In my view that precludes them from also being Grower Champagnes. What does anyone else think?

  2. I agree with you Jiles totally. It is great to see grower Champagnes getting recognition, but sadly these days, it is mostly always from the same select group of growers. There is nothing wrong with that of course, but a little more imagination and research could expand the range of discovery.

    I agree Jiles and Victor you are once again a voice of champagne reason. Those producers listed are excellent but there are so many more fantastic producers out there who often miss out on these regurgitated lists. Dig a little deeper like a well-tended vine root to unearth some amazing wines.

    Yes, in many countries (and for plenty of people anywhere) a Grower Champagne is a brand name they never heard before…Just for example in Switzerland Gosset is marketed as small grower champagne…
