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

The sparkling wines of Champagne have been revered by wine drinkers for hundreds of years, and even today they maintain their reputation for excellence of flavor and character, and are consistently associated with quality, decadence, and a cause for celebration. Their unique characteristics are partly due to the careful blending of a small number of selected grape varietals, most commonly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. These grapes, blended in fairly equal quantities, give the wines of Champagne their wonderful flavors and aromas, with the Pinot Noir offering length and backbone, and the Chardonnay varietal giving its acidity and dry, biscuity nature. It isn't unusual to sometimes see Champagne labeled as 'blanc de blanc', meaning it is made using only Chardonnay varietal grapes, or 'blanc de noir', which is made solely with Pinot Noir.

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.

Country: France

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.
