Montagne de Reims, 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 an abundant 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 2 years sur lattes and was disgorged May 2022, with 3-4 g/L. Tight and racy, with crunchy green apple, bright lemon, and deepchalk streaming along the lifted palate. Beauty chardy backbone and cut, this is a gem.Tasted: 24 July 2023Tasted by: Prices:
