Tasting Notes

This Champagne is composed of even parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the Marc estate in Fleury-la-Riviere, located in the heart of the Marne Valley. The wine does not go through malolactic fermentation and is aged a minimum of three years on the lees. This elegant, restrained Champagne is dry and has the pin-point streamer of bubbles that fans of the expensive stuff love. The nose has the honest baguette toast of long aging and the finish is citric and bracing. At the price, it is a no-brainer to try at least once! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

    The Arthur Marc Initial Noir et Blanc Champagne is a delicate marvel, at an unreal price point. Great measures are taken to ensure the greatest quality: Only hand picked fruit, and only the cuveé, or the first pressing of the grapes, is used in the blend. The assemblage is equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and the reserve wines used are from the finest vintages. Mineral driven, light and exuberant, this is your go to Champagne for an apéretif or a light meal.

    Our best new producer, Arthur Marc makes great Champagne entirely from their estate in the Marne. They are located in the beautiful village of Fleury-la-Riviere with heritage in the region going back 12 generations... All the way to the 1600's! This wine is an even blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that is aged for three years on the lees. It is excellent as an aperitif, as it is bracing and dry without being austere.
