Why We Love It...

Call it the luck of the Irish — but we still have just a weee bit of Jean-Michel Turgy’s remarkable Le Mesnil Champagne! He has perfectly captured all that we love about Le Mesnil in this vintage Blanc de Blancs – the citrine zip, the orchard fruit richness, the textured minerality, and the very essence of Le Mesnil itself. 5 years on the lees, plus another three years under cork take things to a whole new level – one of the most complex Le Mesnil you’ll find under $100 ANYWHERE! And we just happen to have the very best price in the entire world!

Le Mesnil-sur-Oger just might be Champagne’s most unequivocally revered site. Whether it is a $2k+ unicorn bottle of Krug or a deliciously common non-vintage of Delamotte…Le Mesnil is just unmistakable. One of our favorite grower champagne houses, Michel Turgy, just so happens to have ALL six hectares of their vineyards located within the Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil. For this vintage wine they select the best fruit, from the oldest vines (30-60 years old) they farm…and let the remarkable site speak for itself. 

For over 130 years, the Turgy family has been expressing the soul and substance of Mesnil – faithfully capturing the region’s unparalleled terroir. Peacefully lingering in the shadows of the larger houses in the Côte de Blancs, 3rd generation grower Champagne artisan Jean-Michel Turgy is crafting character-rich chardonnay-based wines on Le Mesnil’s famous chalk and limestone soils.  Following careful hand harvesting and selection in the vineyard, the fruit is pressed in an ancient wooden upright Champagne press. The juice is then fermented on indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks before secondary fermentation in bottle. The wine ages on the lees for a minimum of five years, with zero dosage. (The label says Brut, though this could technically be labeled as Brut Nature or Brut Zero.)

The polish and careful refinement of this Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs is evident immediately. Aromas of gardenias, lemon zest, smoked hay, and green apples lead into a palate of toasted brioche, salted yellow plums, lemon curd, and quince paste. The wine showcases Le Mesnil’s characteristic chalkiness, as a bright vein of tingly, flinty mineral edges carries the abundant fruit into an exceptionally bright and spicy finish. Just an epic Champagne from start to finish. This will compete with the best offerings of Champagne houses 10x the size – and win, at least in our not quite so humble opinion. Fantastic stuff that is simply not to be missed!

About the Producer

Domaine Michel Turgy was established in the 1920's by Maurice Turgy. Michel took over in 1955 and crafts “grower” Champagnes from his hillside vineyards.  All the vineyards are rated 100% Grand Cru and are located in Le Mesnil sur Oger.  The soils are pure chalk with vines that are 30 years old on average. Vines are cared for according to lutte raisonée principles, adhering to organic practices as much as possible and avoiding chemical treatments. Michel harvests all the fruit by hand and presses with an old fashioned, upright Champagne press. The juice is always fermented on native yeast, aged in stainless steel tanks and goes through full malolactic fermentation. Depending on vintage, all his wines are aged for a minimum of 5 years on the lees.
