Champagne A. Margaine L'Extra Brut NV

Champagne, FranceArnaud Margaine is 5th generation winegrower in the Montagne de Reims, overseeing their sustainable vineyards. This BdB comes from their home village, 1er Cru Villers-Marmery, and parcels Alouettes, Grands Arbres, Levoies. The village is a little island of chalky chardonnay in a generous sea of Pinot Noir. This was fermented in a 80/20 SS / wood mix, with no MLF, and approximately 20% reserve wines from the previous year. My bottle spent two years sur lattes and was disgorged May 2022, with 3-4 g/L. Tight and streamlined, with bright acidity driving crunchy green apple, lemon down a chiseled palate. This smart wine is friendly and complete, making it easy to love.Tasted: 17 November 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
