Arthur Marc "Grand Cuvée" Brut Champagne

SKU #1210394

A 50/50 blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Marc estate in Fleury-la-Riviere in the heart of the Marne valley. This is aged for five years and treated with a low dosage to preserve its crisp character. The Grand Cuvée has the texture and complexity of a big house tête de cuvée and, surprisingly, also the restraint. I love the elegance of this wine--it manages to balance brioche richness with chalky raciness and do it effortlessly. If you like long finishing, subtle Champagne on the drier side, you will love this. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

The Marc estate is located in the valley of the Marne in the picturesque village of Fleury-la-Riviere, very close to Tarlant, Collard and Coutelas. This Champagne is an entirely estate grown blend of half and half Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It is aged for five years on the lees before being released and is also blended with 20% older vintages. This Champagne has the richness that you would expect from a wine that is older and more integrated, while retaining great snap from its Chardonnay half.

- 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.
