A. Margaine Extra Brut Champagne

Grower Premier Cru, Blanc de Blanc. Bright and crisp aromas of apples, pastry and brown spices, warm apple pie. On the palate this is crisp with zingy acidity and tart cooking apples, finishing with nice minerality.  D&M Tasting Notes

Villers-Marmery is an anomaly in the Montagne de Reims, an island of Chardonnay in a sea of Pinot Noir creating near Blanc de Blancs and giving the most simply delicious Champagnes in this portfolio. These can be some of the most hauntingly beautiful and original Champagnes you can drink. The clone of Chardonnay used by Margaine in Villers-Marmery is specific to this area and cannot be found in other parts of Champagne.

Arnaud Margaine’s daughter Mathilde joined her father at the estate in 2018, marking the 5th generation to work this land. Margaine stands out in our portfolio and in all of Champagne. The majority of Margaine’s holdings are in the 1er Cru village of Villers-Marmery, a village planted 95% to Chardonnay, while the neighboring villages are dominated by Pinot Noir. Their focus on Chardonnay in the Montagne de Reims is certainly something of an anomaly, particularly in a region best known for Pinot Noirs. The chalky, limestone based soils and east-facing exposition in Villers-Marmery are more similar to those of the Côte de Blancs than their closest neighbors in Verzy or Trepail.

Mathilde’s increasing influence in the estate can be seen in all aspects, from branding and label design to farming techniques and practices. Her slight modifications to the style of the wines can be felt too, moving away from the more reductive style of the wines previously.
