Winemaker Notes

A fine and complex nose that mingles dried fruit, tropical flowers and clear-cut fruit aromas. The finish is drawn out by a fine crispness that adds zest to the flavors. The wine shows delicate texture around a solid backbone. Best as an aperitif or served with fish and poultry. Drink now or cellar for up to five years.

COMMENTARY: The Champagne Serge Mathieu Brut Cuvée Prestige is authentic and rustic. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of savory spices, rustic earth, and chalk. Enjoy it with panko-coated, pan-fried Petrale sole. (Tasted: November 8, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast
From his 30-acre vineyard in the Aube, Serge Mathieu makes a complex, honeyed blend of two-thirds Pinot Noir and one-third Chardonnay. Flavors of hazelnuts and quince go with fresh balanced toast and yeast. The wine practically floats across the palate, leaving a light, fresh feel. This is a great apéritif wine.

Champagne Serge Mathieu, France
Champagne Serge Mathieu is a producer that intimately knows their Kimmeridgian limestone terroir. As a supplier to Billecart-Salmon for years, the Mathieu family is consistently recognized as one of the top growers in the Côte des Bar. They focus on Pinot Noir based Champagnes with depth, precision, and an exuberant quality, not unlike their makers Isabelle Mathieu and Michel Jacob, that will enliven any opportunity to pop a bottle.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, . These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

A term typically reserved for Champagne and Sparkling Wines, non-vintage or simply “NV” on a label indicates a blend of finished wines from different vintages (years of harvest). To make non-vintage Champagne, typically the current year’s harvest (in other words, the current vintage) forms the base of the blend. Finished wines from previous years, called “vins de reserve” are blended in at approximately 10-50% of the total volume in order to achieve the flavor, complexity, body and acidity for the desired house style. A tiny proportion of Champagnes are made from a single vintage.

There are also some very large production still wines that may not claim one particular vintage. This would be at the discretion of the winemaker’s goals for character of the final wine.
