Arteis & Co Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru Single Vineyard Champagne

£85.00

The prestige wine of the range, it is exceptional and comes from a single vineyard parcel of premier cru grapes. It is aged for 10 years before it is assessed for release; the type of patience needed to create a world class product. It is golden in colour, with a nose of fresh butter, orange zest, grapefruit, quince and subtleties of cacao and coffee bean. It is elegant, delicate and very complex – not a wine you will forget and worth the money, even at this price tag.

“There is a hint of lime freshness on the nose, driving pure citrus elegance on the palate. Terrific concentration and length. Tangy, tense and elegant, opening up in the glass to complex aromas that are smoky, biscuit and even slightly herbal, broadening out as it warms up a little.” 17.5/20 jancisrobinson.com

    About the producer:
    Artéis & Co is a project born from a team of vignerons who left Perrier Jouet to deliver a range of Champagnes that are truly world class. Lead Chef de Cave is Fabien alongside experienced winemaker, Jean-Philippe Diot. Their mission is to produce exceptional, artisanal Champagnes celebrating the craftsmanship and creativity of winemakers. They are based in Vinay, just next to the Premier Cru villages and source small batches from the best Grand Cru and premier vineyards managed by artisans-vignerons. The wine then goes ‘under cork’, which is to say that it has undergone its second fermentation in bottle but is yet to be disgorged and given its dosage. Sugar and SO2 levels are kept to an absolute minimum for a pure, natural expression of Champagne.

    The style of Arteis is intensity, elegance and minerality, with grip and length on the palate. There is plenty of richness and weight, but these are primarily wines of finesse and vitality and the extended period on the lees brings plenty of depth and savoury complexity.

    Jancis Robinson MW had a lot to say on the wines: “Arteis is a new name in champagne, applied to specially selected parcels of mature artisan Champagnes disgorged recently. This one spent 11 years on it’s lees (yeast), was made in the most glamourous vintage of the past decade and is a (relative) bargain”.
