Trudon "Emblematis" Brut Champagne

SKU #1301128

The Trudon "Emblematis" Brut Champagne is the bulk of his production, but feels like a specialty cuvée. It is composed of 70% Meunier and 30% Pinot Noir and is aged three and a half years on the lees. I love the exotic, pure Meunier fruit in this Champagne and the way that it marries with the creamy, delicately toasty aromas and flavors. The wine has no trace of sherry like oxidation or bruised apple malic character that Meunier-based Champagnes sometimes have. On the contrary, this is very clean and bright given the level of concentration and character in the wine. At the price, I don’t see any reason for any Champagne fan not to try it - unless you only drink zero dosage blanc de blancs!. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

Emblematis, which can translate as "symbolic", to Trudon expresses the house's "historical style" while featuring 70% Meunier that thrives from the Festigny soils. 60% of the wine is from the difficult yet concentrated vintage of 2012 while the rest of the wine is a reserve blend. The wine is driven with mouthwatering acidity mixed with a finesse of floral undertones and is held on the back palate with chalky minerality. The wine surprisingly went through 90% malolactic fermentation, which adds to the elegance of the wine but doesn't distract from it's longevity. An award winning champagne at an award winning price!

Our latest direct import from the Marne is true to the style of the region, with Meunier dominating the blend followed by Pinot Noir. This Blanc de Noir showcases real exoticism and spice, with pear, apple and cherry flavors and a rich, decadent texture. The finish just stays and stays. Another sub-$30 Champagne miracle from our direct import program.

During our recent Champagne tasting, we were discussing the Pinot Meunier grape - its unique personality, versatility, ability to make a delicious wine on its own and even its contribution of savory richness to the Krug house style. Well, we have a new Meunier based Champagne (70% PM, 30% PN) from Trudon, and it is delicious - a fantastic example of the power and tastiness of this grape variety. Juicy, subtly spicy and refreshing, Trudon Emblematis reminds me of Michel Loriot Brut Reserve, whose bottles I have nearly depleted in my cellar over the past couple years. I will surely be replacing them with Trudon. Delicious, and affordable, Champagne!

Our most exciting new value in Champagne is here, the Emblematis from Jerome Trudon. With more than three years of ageing on the lees, this all estate blend of 70% Meunier and 30% Pinot Noir should be more expensive... Luckily we buy direct and the dollar is strong! This wine has 50% reserves from older vintages and features subtle baguette toast and exotic yet elegant fruit on the nose and in the mouth. Since Jerome does not use malolactic, this wine has great focus and a finish that I would only expect from a wine costing 50% more!
Top Value!

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.

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.
