Why We Love It...

If it’s an incredibly rare, wildly delicious, highly touted grower Champagne, count us in. This 94 point cuvee hits all those marks with ease, and we can pretty much guarantee you won’t be able to find it anywhere else, at least not stateside! Adding to the excitement is the 50% off price-tag on this single-vineyard Moussy-based Champagne, which pulls pinot meunier and chardonnay into an ultra-rare co-fermentation to whip up this entirely spectacular offering from a favorite recent discovery of ours!

Victor Charlot leads the charge as the fifth generation of the family to pursue grape-growing in the land of Moussy, south of Epernay. At just 33 years old, he’s spent the great majority of his life honing the skill set passed down from father to son for the past century. He tends to lean on a mixture of styles – both appreciating and honoring traditional winemaking processes of the past while integrating more contemporary innovations and ideologies. Always, he remains humbly in awe of what his ancestors forged before him, striving to maintain their legacy in all that he does. He has this inherent boldness – a natural charm that stems from organic confidence and contentment for life and his profession. When our Last Bubbles team visited the estate, Victor, alongside his wife and business partner, Charlotte, made us feel absolutely at home – despite language barriers amongst us – and even taught us how to disgorge a rare, extra-aged Blanc de Blancs! We spent the day drinking his fine portfolio of Champagnes (and most excellent ratafia) while sharing a few small bites prepared by Charlotte at their lovely new tasting room in the heart of Moussy.

This “Les Terres de la Greve” came from a plot that Victor’s grandparents planted in 1960 beneath the famous Church of Chavot, a 12th-century sanctuary on a hill that has remained a Champagne landmark for many centuries. Acting as somewhat of a pivot point between the Côte de Blancs and the Marne Valley, this tiny region maintains a bit of a combination of dominant soils from its neighbors. You’ll find chalk-dominant soils like that from the Côte de Blancs, as well as the hearty red clay similar to the Marne – meaning the 125 hectares of vineyards grow both chardonnay and pinot meunier perfectly, and divided equally across the land, with a small amount of pinot noir in the mix (some 6 hectares). This cuvee is predominantly pinot meunier (some 70%) blended with 30% of chardonnay, exclusively from the 2019 vintage. Victor prefers to work within a single vintage for this wine, as the co-fermentation makes this wine indisputably unique each season. A mere 1,500 bottles were produced, or just 125 cases, meaning it is one of the smallest production wines we’ve ever featured at Last Bubbles! Rare, indeed!

It experiences fermentation in stainless steel, followed by bottle-aging on the lees for 30 months. The final dosage is at the low end of the brut scale – 6 grams per liter – to keep the flavor profile fresh and oh-so-bright. I can’t help but adore the flavors in this Champagne – precisely mineral and richly intense with a cherry profile that maintains accents of plums and citrus. It’s full-bodied across the palate with a long and zippy finish, while notes of raw hazelnuts and almond milk elements offer a creamy depth to the wine that carries into something chalky and saline. It’s all at once straightforward and extraordinary, and overall just a great effort that thrills us to no end to bring to the masses of Bubbles Monsters amongst us. Plus, did we mention 94 points? 50% off? Listen, this is a bit of a no-brainer for those who appreciate rare, passionately produced grower Champagnes! Not much remains, so don’t wait around long to order a pack!
