Ariston Aspasie "Brut de Fut" Champagne

SKU #1003160

If you haven't had the tiny production Champagne, this is a rare opportunity to do so. They only make 14 barrels of this wine, and it is the last of the production from their oldest vines, which were destroyed in the hail of 2003. We only received 36 bottles of this, which is entirely 2002 although not labeled as a vintage. It is composed of 50% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir and 25% Meunier that is barrel fermented, but not aged in oak. They bottle in February at Aspasie, so this wine saw less than six months in barrel. It is incredibly rich, powerful Champagne, but maintains its freshness and minerality quite effortlessly. If you have been a fan Tarlant's cuvee Louis in the past, you will do well to snatch this up!

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose.
