Tasting Notes

Patrick Arnould ages his vintage magnums on the lees four years more than he does his 750s, and then charges you NOTHING for the extra time. Like many Champagne producers, he passionately believes this is the format from which to drink Champagne! Only 48 of these magnums were imported to the U.S. This wine is a blend of very old-vine (50+ years) Verzenay Pinot Noir and Oger Chardonnay in equal proportions. The Chardonnay comes from Delphine Cazals, Olivier Bonville's wife, who trades Patrick for red wine so she can make rosé. This is wine exclusively for the patient, as the two terroirs that have come together in this bottle need a lot of time to marry. But when they have had the time, it is a spectacular example of what the care of two growers coupled with the variety of two great terroirs can do. I can't really think of anything to compare the wine to, but it is an experience not to be missed. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)
