60 years ago the owner of Jeeper Champagne, Arnoud Goutorbe, a resistance fighter, lost a leg helping to liberate France. American GIs gave him a Jeep to enable him to tend his Champagne vineyards. The neighbours dubbed it Champagne Jeeper.
Nowadays the house of Jeeper has gained an international reputation for producing fine Champagnes. With its stand-out bottle shape (designed to reduce oxidation) and its distinct taste, it stands out from the field.
What is the “Jeeper Taste” ? It is the production of finely balanced wines, dominated by Chardonnay, with great persistence and no harshness, bitterness or astringency.
Based near Reims, Jeeper have 35 hectares of their own vineyards. 10% of the vineyards are Premier cru and 10% Grand cru. Champagne Jeeper has just received the sustainable vine-growing and High Environmental Value (HEV) certificates.
Region/Terroir: Champagne. 37 crus from across Champagne area.
Grapes: 60% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir, 15% Pinot Meunier.
Dosage: 7g/litre (Brut)
Alcohol: 12% alc/VOL
Winemaking techniques: Traditional Champagne methods. The bottle shape means less oxygenation and one third of usual sulphur can be used. Long resting on old oak (2 years) and long resting on lees (5 years).
Our tasting notes: Fruity nose and lovely toasty notes. Creamy texture, fine bubbles very long finish. An excellent Champagne.
“This is a very vinous and rich Champagne with sliced apple, cooked pear and light bread dough character. Full body, pretty texture and a flavourful finish. Drink now. 92 points” James Suckling.

And much loved by our friends the Wine Wankers.
As a #wine lover, and a dreamer of #champagne, I get a total buzz out of indulging in new and unique wine experiences and this Jeeper champagne rates right up there. Not only is its story special, it was created in honour of the american soldiers of world war 2 and their jeeps who helped liberate France and the champagne region, it’s also a super delicious full flavoured power #bubbles in an interesting bottle. It might seem modern kitsch but it was designed, and has been produced, since the 1940s! This is imported into #Australia by Discovervin and is well worth the 80 bucks or so. #postbyconrad #vino #food #travel
