We know we are always saying it, but Champagne out of Magnum is the perfect size foraging, and more often then not, magnums taste slightly better when compared to 750s. We have had the pleasure of trying multiple bottles of the 2012 Remy Massin Millesime in 750ml, that were incredible, but magnums should even be better!
A serious bottle and a brilliant Magnum Champagne buy.

On par with 2008, we recently tried the 2012 and were blown away. A small producer located the village of Ville-Sur-Arce, in the Aube, the same area as Cedric Bouchard, Marie Courtin, and other greats call home. They use excellent farming practices and are 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. The delivery of this wine is seamless with some up-front apple laying over lime zest, greenstone fruits, and a 'leesy' brioche with chalky minerality. The palate is balanced with velvet-like mouthfeel, a creamy richness, and some ripe citrus notes. There is a focused acidity that 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, this is highly recommended and unavailable anywhere else!
