Forest-Marié N.V. Brut Tradition

This is the cuvée that won the coveted Coup de Coeur from the Guide Hachette in France. Made from equal parts Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier, 40% 2016 and 60% 2015. It has that insinuating nose that only champagne can offer, full of biscuity intrigue. Crisp and fresh, with a beguiling gingery overtone, this is a mighty satisfying “basic” champagne that is a poster-child for what makes our grower friends such a rewarding source for this most important of beverages.
