2008 Arthur Marc "Perla Nera" Vintage Brut Champagne

SKU #1244738

About the producer: "The story begins in 1626, when Lord François de Baradat, the rich proprietor of a vineyard in Fleury-la-Rivière in Champagne and favourite courtier of King Louis XIII, is condemned to exile by Richelieu, for romantic liaisons and for provoking the Marquis de Seguier to a duel. Returning to his estate in Fleury-la-Rivière, which at the time was renowned for its red wine, François de Baradat had to wait until the death of Richelieu to find favour in the royal court again. When he eventually returned to court he bequeathed his estate; it is the legacy of Champagne Arthur Marc. To pay tribute to this flamboyant benefactor, the House of Marc, to this day, adorns each and every bottle of its champagne with the symbol of crossed swords upon a radiant sun: the sign of royalty."

This is powerful Pinot! 100% Grand Cru Pinot Noir is some serious stuff, and this bottle lets you know just how dense and concentrated of a wine the chalky soils of Champagne can make. The nose is crushed rock and Bing cherry, red fruited and bold. On the palate the cherry continues, wrapped in dense mineral notes, with fig and plum adding layers. This wine is wound very tightly right now, very much built for the cellar, this would also be a wonderful pairing to any dish you would usually serve with a Pinot Noir, salmon or duck would be lovely.

Country:

France

- 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.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- 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.
