Why We Love It...

If you’ve been with us for a while – you know that Remy Massin is one of our very favorite growers. The Côte des Bar is the hippest and most revolutionary region in Champagne at the moment… and growers like Remy Massin are putting the whole bubbly-loving world on notice – if these full, penetrating, and powerful bubbles aren’t in your collection already, they need to be! This 96 point bottling has just landed, from the 2017 vintage, and ready to astound!

Remy Massin traces its roots on the sunny hillsides of Ville sur Acre all the way back to 1865. Now, five generations of growing grapes later, this exceptional producer consistently crafts some of our favorite cuvées to be found in any corner of the sparkling wine world. Closely matching the Kimmeridgian soils of nearby Chablis, their vineyards are predominantly planted to pinot noir, with about 20% dedicated to chardonnay and a scant 5% set aside for the pinot blanc. They make a fair number of cuvees, including a few Special Club collections that have delighted you all with a quality and value that seriously overdelivers.

The latest in that vein is this simply stunning 2017 cuvee – forged from a 60/40 blend of chardonnay and pinot noir on the Massin estate. The 2017 vintage in this southerly corner of Champagne produced rich and complex wines, with great freshness and purity that is one of the hallmarks of the Remy Massin estate. Pale golden in the glass, the wine whispers delicate aromas of white flowers, and the pristine sensations of an alpine meadow, finishing on notes of Granny Smith apples and Meyer lemon zest. The wine is decidedly fuller and fleshier on the palate, with white cherries, yellow plums, lemon verbena, pineapple sage, crème fraîche, and a smoky, mineral-driven, almost Chablis-esque finish. 

With a full five years aging on the lees, followed by an Extra Brut level dosage of just 5.5 g/liter – this cuvee effortlessly balances the developed, nuanced character of time in bottle, with the vibrant and bright character amplified by the low dosage. The result is one of the most complex under $50 Champagnes we’ve featured, and an absolute must-have for every bubbly lover! These are artisanally small productions, but we got all we could. Speak up for a few of your own, now!
