The NV Extra-Brut is a tightly wound wine layered with expressive white fruit, Mirabelle plums, jasmine, mint and flowers. The wine’s minerality comes to the forefront on the mid-palate and finish, with hints of slate and crushed rock that add considerable focus. This release is 100% 2006 Chardonnay from Champs d’Enfer, a parcel planted in 1921 that is also Margaine’s oldest vineyard in Villers-Marmery. Dosage is 4.5 grams per liter. Margaine describes 2006 as an excellent vintage. Natural alcohols came in around 10.4% and acidities were in the 6.5% range. Disgorged July 10, 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2016.

Varietal: Champagne Blend

The careful blending of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varietal grapes has long been the secret to the success of the famous sparkling wines of the Champagne region. The wines of this region have gone down in history as the finest example of France's sparkling produce, and the methods of processing the grapes in this region have been imitated in almost every wine producing country in the world. There are actually seven different grape varietals allowed to be included in a Champagne sparkling wine, although grape varietals such as Pinot Blanc, Arbanne and Pinot Gris are used less and less commonly in its production. Whilst the Chardonnay varietal grapes offer their distinctive biscuit flavor and wonderful astringency, it is the Pinot Noir grapes (most commonly used for producing beautifully light red wines) which give the Champagne wines their length and backbone.

Region: Champagne

The beautiful rolling hillsides of the Champagne region of France have, for hundreds of years, been producing many of the world's most famous wines. The sparkling white wines to come out of Champagne's prestigious wineries have conquered the world, and are drank in celebration across the globe. The vast majority of the region is under vine, and grows predominantly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grape varietals, which are usually blended together by master wine-makers in order to make their recognizable and widely loved produce. The north-easterly region of Champagne has a relatively cool climate, and quite a lot of rainfall, making it far from ideal for ripening grapes. However, the presence of heavily forested areas in the region helps maintain a balanced temperature, and the generations of expertise the wineries hold clearly produces excellent results in spite of the climatic problems.
