Know Your ChampagneThe Champagne region is one of the most exciting today, with a bevy of small producers creating flavours giving a greater expression of style and place.A prime focus - and a personal passion - are the members of an elite group of grower-producers known as the 'Club Trésors de Champagne' or 'Special Club', which was founded in 1971. Currently consisting of 28 producers, all member wines undergo a rigorous selection before release and are the pinnacle of what they can produce.To become a 'Special Club' release requires the absolute best and is a guarantee of excellence. There are good Champagnes... There are great Champagnes... And then there is the Special Club. Product Details Traditionally non-vintage champagnes were the best expression of a house style. A vintage wine however should reflect all the personality, spirit and circumstances of each particular year interpreted by each producer’s unique, individual style. Champagne has the most marginal climate of all wine producing regions. No two vintages are ever the same and each year it is these varying conditions that can make champagne so fascinating. Historically vintage champagnes were only produced three or four times a decade. These days’ vintage champagnes are produced much more regularly. It may be due to better viticulture, perhaps global warming, but it seems we can now enjoy the experience much more frequently. ReviewsWhat David has to say..."It is excellent that this has been released in a magnum format; the cuvée gives so much pleasure that 750mL is just not enough!The 2005 vintage is a blend of 60% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier. It exhibits a pale, white gold colour and lifted, fresh, white floral notes with some toasty, crème brûlée and ginger edges. The palate comes as quite a surprise; remarkable freshness which is countered by a layered complexity, texture and mouthfeel. This is one of the best 2005s we’ve come across and a commendable effort.
