Chardonnay imparts depth and complexity for the overall balance while Chenin Blanc lends citrus and hints of honey for a creamy texture. Colombard’s higher acidity provides structure, length and a pleasant minerality that is supplemented by the Ugni Blanc’s fruit profile.

|A versatile accompaniment that is very cuisine-friendly. Try it with savory hors d’oeuvres, popcorn, creamy pastas, spicy dishes, seafood, fruit based desserts or semi-soft cheese.
|Le Grand Courtage is our vision. We decided to pursue our passion, take a risk and move to France with the goal of making a well-priced sparkling wine unlike any on the market.
Intended to mean “the Great Courtship”, our approach was to combine hundreds of years of grape growing experience with progressive blending techniques. This multi award-winning wine is a courtship between French and American wine culture, an unusual blend of four grapes from four terroirs; and it is the courtship between the wine and its consumer. We carefully crafted Le Grand Courtage to delight the American consumer’s palate and to be versatile enough to pair with a wide array of cuisines.
Our motto is ‘Embrace Life. Dream Big. Accept all Invitations.‘ and to that end our goal is to provide an affordable luxury that is perfect for “courting life” and celebrating its special occasions, as well as all of the every day moments in between.
