• Marie Demets Tradition Brut Champagne

100% Pinot Noir. Grower Champagne. The Marie Dements Tradition Brut MV is made up entirely of Pinot Noir, with 69% from 2014 and 31% from 2016. The wine was allowed to go through Malolactic conversion, and after spending 18 months on its lees it is disgorged and finished with 9 grams of dosage. The nose of the Tradition shows its Pinot Noir origins with aromas of golden apple skin, citrus, minerals and a slight hint of autolytic cream. The palate is moderate in weight with golden apple and citrus zests balanced nicely by a Chablis like minerality. Try this with grilled pork tenderloin. D&M Tasting Notes

The history of Marie Dements starts with her father André Brément. André was a vineyard worker in the village of Gyé-sur-Seine when he began planting vines of his own in the 1950s. Through the 50s and 60s he acquired more land while selling his crop to the houses in the area. In 1972, his son in law Alain Dements came aboard to help manage the vineyard. André and Alain worked together in the vineyards for over a decade until André retired. Time marched on and in 1987 Alain produced the first estate grown and bottled Champagne, naming it after his wife: Marie Dements. Today, it is Alain and Marie's son, Pierre, who tends the vines and still works with his father in the cellar making the cuvees. The Dements family owns a total of 25 acres across 14 parcels located in the villages of Gyé sur Seine, Neuville sur Seine and Courteron. Most of their vineyards (70%) are Pinot Noir, while the balance is Chardonnay. Pierre farms everything sustainably, he harvests by hand, and “presses the grapes as soon as they reach the pressing center to preserve maximum flavor and aroma.” Michael Kennel, D&M
