100% Chardonnay, aged in French oak (20%) and stainless steel. Dosage 9 g/l. Assemblage: 100% Villers-Marmery Premier Cru. Disgorged 2/19.
“Ample, creamy and beautifully layered on the palate, with exquisite aromatics, the Special Club dazzles from the very first taste. All the elements simply fall into place. Lemon peel, orchard fruit, crushed rocks and lifted floral notes convey brightness, but here, too, I am blown away by the wine's precision and focus. The 2012 is 100% Chardonnay, aged partly in wood, with full malolactic fermentation. It may very well be the most complete Champagne I have ever tasted from Arnaud Margaine.” 95ag
