Rated 91 by Wine Advocate
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

There are few areas in the world with a reputation quite as famous and respected as that of Champagne in France, and almost every wine region on earth has imitated or has been influenced by the careful process mastered by the wineries of Champagne. However, it is in the grape varietals which thrive in this region where the secrets to the Champagne's success can be found – the acidic, flavorful Chardonnay grapes meeting the characterful Pinot Noir varietal, and coming together to produce something wonderful in the bottle. There are actually seven varietals allowed by French wine law for the production of Champagne wines, all of which are used by wineries to accentuate each others finest points and maintain the reputation of this very special region, the home to some extremely high quality grapes.

Region: Champagne

The beautiful north-easterly region of Champagne in France is famous around the world for the production of the exquisite sparkling white wines which characterize the region. All over the globe, bottles of wine from Champagne are celebrated and enjoyed, and their fame has come about through generations of expertise and experimentation, and a dedication to quality which raises the bar for producers of sparkling wines everywhere. The vast majority of grapes grown in this special region are of the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Petit Meunier varietals, the principle grapes used for the production of Champagne sparkling white wines. The region itself is far cooler than many other important French wine regions, but this hasn't stopped the dozens of wineries in Champagne from making their distinctive and much-loved produce.
