Champagne NV – Black Market Deal #40092
- Rich, complex
About 24 months ago, right in the midst of those long lockdowns, we got our hands on some spectacular Champagne on a ridiculous deal. It turned out to be the best selling (and most reordered) Champagne in Vinomofo’s history. This time around, we’re levelling up. This comes from the same producer and is the same blend as before. The difference, one that matters greatly, is that this one has a lengthy five years of ageing on lees. That’s more time to develop texture, complexity, mouthfeel and length. So you get the expected flavours of green apple, lemon peel and fresh lime, but then you layer upon that brioche, almond and minerality. The wine is full on the palate with a vibrant mousse and refreshing acidity to finish. We expect that this Champagne will fly out the door, so best not to miss out.

You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.

Champagne is not generic sparkling wine, it's a region. There I said it. Get it right people. The reason the French get their lingerie in a twizzle when we call Trilogy 'Champoyne' is the history, the money and the angst that have all gone into making Champagne what it is today: a bureaucratic, strictly controlled, marketing-driven behemoth, that still manages to pump out some of the world's finest and most consistent wines. Adding bubbles to wine was a masterstroke of genius, and makes wine from marginal regions not only palatable, but unique and eminently desirable. But it's the way the grapes are grown, the land they're grown in, and the way the bubbles are generated that makes traditional method sparkling (which all Champagne is) special. There will always be alternatives, but none have the history and marketing power of the luxury Champagne powerhouses. You're not buying wine; you're buying a brand name. And that's ok.
