Winemaker Notes

Typical Bargemone color, pale but substantial almost like a Provençal sunset. Classic Bargemone aromas of slightly underripe wild strawberries and mountain herbs. Dry, piquant, excellent intensity of flavor in this vintage with good body and balance. The texture is mouthcoating but also fresh and mouthwatering. The finish is unusually long, clean and dry.

This begs for seafood but has enough stuffing to accompany pizza or ratatouille.

Critical Acclaim

ST 89
International Wine Cellar

Deep salmon skin color. Fresh tangerine and nectarine aromas are complemented by notes of mint and dried flowers. Pliant, finely etched citrus and floral flavors stain the palate and gain sweetness with air. Juicy and gently sweet on the persistent finish, which repeats the tangerine note and leaves dusty minerals behind.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France 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 chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and 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 one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
