2009 Michel Arnould "Carte d'Or" Brut Champagne

SKU #1233474

This wine is a blend of very old-vine (50+ years) Verzenay Pinot Noir and Oger Chardonnay in equal proportions. The Chardonnay comes from Delphine Cazals, Olivier Bonville's wife, who trades Patrick for red wine so she can make rosé. This is wine exclusively for the patient, as the two terroirs that have come together in this bottle need a lot of time to marry. But when they have had the time, it is a spectacular example of what the care of two growers coupled with the variety of two great terroirs can do. I can't really think of anything to compare the wine to, but it is an experience not to be missed. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

Beautiful old-vine bubbles that won't break the bank. Count me in! This blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay shows notes of Flintstones chewables (yes, I am serious) and citrus on the nose. On the palate, red berries and lemon curd are the prominent flavors that lead into a dry and chalky finish. This wine will be showing better with a few more years of bottle age, but it's obvious that this is a very high quality wine.

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. View our bestselling Champagne.
