Sergio's Pick

This is one of the most elegant champagnes I've had and is perfect for those who normally stick to red wine. Aromas of ripe strawberries, rose petals, chalk and custard seduce from the glass. The palate steals the show as the still red wine juice creates a thin layer for the bubbles to glide over, creating a delicate frothy mousse as it dances. The finish is crisp, dry and refreshing with great length.

Additional Notes from Skurnik Wines:

"Villers-Marmery is an anomaly in the Montagne de Reims, an island of Chardonnay in a sea of Pinot Noir creating near Blanc de Blancs and giving the most simply delicious Champagnes in this portfolio. These can be some of the most hauntingly beautiful and original Champagnes you can drink. The clone of Chardonnay used by Margaine in Villers-Marmery is specific to this area and cannot be found in other parts of Champagne.

Arnaud Margaine took over this six and a half hectare estate from his father Bernard in 1989 and is the fourth generation of his family to work these vineyards in the Montagne de Reims. The estate was founded in the 1920s and was expanded by Bernard in the 1950s. In 1977 Bernard joined the Special Club and Arnaud has continued his father’s commitment to high quality champagnes and continues to improve his raw materials in the vineyard.

This is a blend of 79% Chardonnay, 14% Blanc de Noirs with 6% still red wine from the 2018 vintage. Just over half of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation. Sourced from :Villers-Marmery 1er Cru; Chardonnay from Alouettes, Champs d’enfer, Grands Arbres, Pinot Noir from Levoies, Cugnets."
