We have a few magnums of this fantastic Champagne in stock which was a top-selling bottle in 750ml. We have had tried this a few times, and it is our preferred format for this Champagne, showing just a bit fresher than the 750ml, which is an indication that it should age a little longer. An excellent choice for the money and on with 2008. Remy Massin is a small producer located in the village of Ville-Sur-Arce, in the Aube, the same area as Cedric Bouchard, Marie Courtin, and other great growers call home. They use excellent farming practices and are also part of the Special Club, making serious Champagne at a great value. They don't rush their wines out the door, and like 2008 it's nice to have a current release from 2012 while many other producers are offering newer vintages. A blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir, 2012 is a fantastic year priced at a non-vintage level. This wine's delivery is seamless with some up-front apple laying over lime zest, green stone fruits, and a 'leesy' brioche with chalky minerality. The palate is balanced with a velvet-like mouthfeel, a creamy richness, and some ripe citrus notes. A focused acidity brightens the palate for the duration finish, which ends on a mineral note with more dry extract as the wine opens up. A delicious bottle at a great value, and if you like geeking out on Champagne as we do, a magnum of this is highly recommended and unavailable anywhere else!
