Arnaud Margaine, Brut ‘Cuvée Tradionelle’ Premier Cru Villers-Marmery

Margaine NV

Terry Theise and Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset, NY.

90% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir from Villers-Marmery in the Montagne de Reims. 2012 base vintage, 40% reserve wines back to ’02.  Raised in steel.  No malo.  Disgorged May 2013.

Pale color and the floral perfume is memorable, a floating iridescence ranging white to purple. A juicy matrix of bergemot and pear and the chalk underpinnings are polished and high-toned. Now – 2018.
