Barrat-Masson 'Les Margannes' Blanc de blancs '16

Blanc de Blancs 2012

$144.95

- Single vineyard champagne with only 2,000 bottles made

- Small artisanal producer carving out distinctive parcels from Villeanaux-la-Grande

- 100% Chardonnay, being fermented in oak barrels and Brut Nature (0g/L dosage)

Les Margannes comes from two Clay and limestone plots “Challois & Chapelle” that contribute to the pale yellow and golden hues. The nose is fine and complex with notes of honey and acacia, toasted bread and white florals. The foam is persistent with a fine effervescence and the finish has a slight lemon sweetness as well that gives this wine a beautiful balance and lengthens the finish.

 

Champagne Barrat-Masson was born in 2010 out of the desire of Aurélie, oenologist, and Loïc, winemaker to express their passion for the vine and wine through their own champagne. Together they decided to convert the vineyards to organic farming, staying close to nature and allow the wines to reveal their personality and the terroir. Aurélie and Loïc love authenticity: they renovated the old buildings of the family farm to install a wine press, a vat room, and cellars. Barrat-Masson Champagnes are thus exclusively produced when nature achieves the expected quality.

 

Try a smoked salmon tart with dill and creme fraiche.
