Tasting Notes

This spectacular all-Pinot Noir Blanc de Noirs comes from old vines in the Grand Cru of Verzenay. While 2011 was a difficult vintage overall in Champagne, this is a spectacular wine, with power and richness to spare. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

    Don't let the less than famous 2011 vintage fool you- this is flat out one of the top Pinot Noir Champagnes that we have in the store at any price. It is composed exclusively from old massal selected vineyards in the grand cru of Verzenay, and manages to be both very concentrated, powerful and rich as well as maintaining a chalky lift that only the best terroirs can offer in Champagne. If you are looking for kaleidoscope like, multi faceted Champagne this is for you. Too bad we only received five cases!

    I love Pinot Noir Champagnes. I’m always stunned at the power and grace of the good ones, and the Memoire de Vignes from Michel Arnould is, for me, the pinnacle of that style. Made exclusively from the oldest of their estate Grand Cru vines, the precision and depth here are stunning. The rich fruit flavors (think mirabelles, golden apples, cherries, dried apricots) are met on the back end by an equally intense acidity, brimming with minerals and soft spice notes. As you let it warm in your glass, the complexity and length explode! This is a world class, vintage Champagne offered at a mind bogglingly low price.
