2009 Champagne "Special Club" (Grongnet)

Grongnet, Champagne "Special Club", Champagne, France 2009

Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay

A ZESTY ELIXIR! CITRUS & WAXY LEES. VIBRANT, FIRM, & ELEGANT

The "Special Club" distinction is indeed reserved for the best of the best. An elite group of 26 Champagne producers uses the signature bottle shape for their top vintage Champagnes. Each vintage must be put to the Club's tasting panel for certification. Extended aging and superior flavor quality are among the requirements to pass muster. Located just outside of Epernay in the Cote des Blancs, Grongnet represents 5 generations of Champagne production. Yielding tiny, firm bubbles in the glass, this remarkable wine finds the palate with a richness that goes on for minutes and a lingering impression of bright, waxy, full-bodied seduction.

Serving Suggestion: Toasted brioche, smoked salmon & caviar. In a bath tub with someone you love. Extraordinary occasions.

Champagne Blanc de Blancs (Grongnet)

Grongnet, Blanc de Blancs, Champagne, France NV

BOLD LIME, YEASTY & RICH, CHISELED BUT SOFT

This Blanc de Blancs (white wine]from white grapes – in this case, Chardonnay) is racy and very rich but still easy-going enough to serve as a sub for mystifyingly overpriced mega-production staples like Veuve Clicqout. Unlike the factory wines which dominate the world of Champagne today, this is handmade in minute quantities by a small, independent, family-owned vigneron. Mmmmm, the limey character and vibrant acidity are powerful and almost crystaline. Substantially more impressive than the refreshingly reasonable price might indicate!

Serving Suggestion: The classic pairing is with a triple cream cheese like Explorateur, but we'll go out on a limb and recommend it with Pigs in Blanket - made with brioche and quality charcuterie of course.

FIRM CHERRY & STONE FRUIT, TOASTY MACAROON, ZESTY ACIDITY

Cécile Grognet represents the estate’s fifth generation, and a 120+ year legacy as a family of Champagne growers. Her expertise shines brightly in this beautiful bubbly.
