A blend of equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the flinty, clay-limestone soils of Verzy, the 2013 Extra-Brut Grand Cru Verzy La Blanche Voie Special Club was disgorged in July 2019 without dosage. Offering up scents of citrus pith, pomelo, verbena and blanched almonds, complemented by subtle hints of ocean spray and honeycomb, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and intense, with a racy spine of acidity and a pure core of fruit that's complemented by a pinpoint mousse. Bone-dry but not unduly austere, it has plenty of gastronomic potential in its chiseled, mineral style. ... More details

The 2013 Spécial Club La Blanche Voie is rich and resonant, with tons of depth, and the sheer character to match. Dried pear, apple, white flowers and fresh, minty notes all emerge with time in the glass. Vinification in barrel for 50% of the wine brings out notable breath in this striking Pinot Noir/Chardonnay blend. Even with all of its intensity, the 2013 possesses terrific tension and cut. This is such an expressive wine. No dosage.

Varietal: Champagne Blend

There are few wine regions of the world with as much influence or fame as that of Champagne in France. The sparkling wines from this special area have long been associated with excellence and magnificent flavors, and much of their success has been down to the careful blending of fine grape varietals in order to achieve spectacular results. Most commonly, Champagne wines use both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varietal grapes in more or less equal measures, often boosted by a small quantity of Pinot Meunier for extra bite. The Chardonnay varietal grapes offer their acidity and flavor to the bottle, and help with the dryness associated with quality in this type of wine. The Pinot Noir, on the other hand, gives strength to the wine, and gives Champagne its distinctive 'length' of character.

Region: Champagne

There are very few wine regions in the world quite as famous as Champagne, and the sparkling white wines which are produced there are drank and enjoyed all over the globe as a result of their excellent quality, distinctive features and their association with grandeur and celebration. Wineries have been operating in the cool, damp north-easterly region of Champagne for hundreds of years, and over time have mastered the art of making the most of the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Petit Meunier grape varietals which grow there across the rolling hillsides and kept in the region's unique 'Champagne caves'. Most commonly, these three varietals are blended together to produce the sparkling white wine, but the popularity of single variety Champagne wines are on the increase.

Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
