CHAMPAGNE VIRGINIE T SET (3 Bottles)
This sets includes:
Champagne Virginie T 6 ans d’age (1 Bottle)
Their prestige cuvée, is comprised of Grand Crus of the outstanding 2008 vintage and 15% reserve wine from the 2007 harvest. All the fruit comes from the Montagne de Reims, Vallee de la Marne and Cote des Blancs. The blend is 70% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir, and 10% Pinot Meunier. Bottled in March 2009, it was disgorged six years later in May 2015. Although this is less than the 8 years for the Brut, 6 ans d’age now has another 6 years of bottle age! Very nutty, smoky, brioche, dried citrus peel and aged apple cider. Complex, long, winey, creamy. A large glass please!!
Champagne Virginie T Brut (2 Bottles)
In the case of the present batch of Virgine T Brut (85% being of the 2010 vintage and the balance from reserve wine), the wine was bottled in July 2011 to undergo the secondary fermentation and was not disgorged until September 2019! An extended period of more than 8 years!! (The legal requirement is just a minimum 15 months).
The end result is a generosity of layered fruit; tiny but persistent bubbles; and, a rounded, sumptuous mouth-feel that is practically creamy. The dosage is 6 g/l, the lowest for Brut (which can be a maximum 12 g/l).
Virginie T Brut is composed of 67% Pinot Noir and 23% Chardonnay, and 10% Pinot Meunier, with the majority of the fruit coming from 11 Grand and Premier Cru villages.
