Located in Venteuil, Vallee de la Marne, the Marniquet family set out to make Champagne under their own name in 1929. The poor prices offered to growers in those days by the "grande maisons" were such that it only made sense for growers to follow a move initiated in 1911 during the revolts of Champagne, and attempt to carve their own piece of the market.
The originality of the Chaines dÈtoiles Brut Reserve resides in a higher proportion of Pinot Meunier that accounts for 50% of the varietals in this Champagne, Chardonnay being 35% and 15% of Pinot Noir. The Meunier contributes greatly to the uplifted aromatics while the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir lend freshness and structure to the blend. Aged in bottle for an average of 3 years, this lands at a remarkable price point for quality Champagne into Australia.
Pours with a white creamy mousse that shows good hold. Pale gold base wine colour with exceptionally fine and persistent bead. Superb classic Champagne sniff revealing notes of baked bread, yeast lees and toast followed by some almond end notes. Full flavoured and quite rich the palate delivers mouthfilling flavours of yeast lees, toast, baked bread and brioche with the toasty yeast like characters persisting onto the back palate. Almost creamy like texture with clean crisp dry finish. Excellent depth with long toasty, yeast lees and baked bread aftertaste.
Drink over the next 2-3 years (2012-2015).
