A. Margaine, Champagne 1er Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Special Club, 2013

Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.

Special Club is an organization made up of Champagne's to growers. They meet every year to blind taste each others wines. The very best are sold exclusively in the Special Club packaging and made in tiny quantities. These are some of the very best bottles in the region, vintage after vintage.

The 2013 Margaine Spécial Club is a delicious, 100% Chardonnay wine from the Montagne-de-Reims. After the luxuriously rich and powerful 2012s, the 2013 is a more classically styled Champagne, lighter and brighter with more acidity and a distinct saline minerality. Ripe lemon, tart orchard fruit, and toasty pastry come through on the palate, providing a perfect harmony of texture and energy.

"The 2013 Spécial Club offers a striking expression of Chardonnay. Rich and creamy in the glass, the Spécial Club is so alluring. Partial vinification in oak adds texture and a hint of oakiness, but is not obtrusive at all. Lemon confit, marzipan, white flowers and a touch of spice fill out the layers nicely. I would give it at least a year or two in bottle to soften, as the finish is just a bit tight today. Dosage is 8 grams per liter."
