The opinion of Clotilde, the oenologist
The cuvée SPECIAL CLUB 2005 is a Champagne of perfect maturity, structured, with finesse. Very bright for a wine of 8 years of age, it is a delicate, subtle wine that I would call "aerien". The wine has a very low dosage to bring out the richness of the soil...
Clotilde and Nicolas are members of the Club Treasures of Champagne : the intransigence of quality is the unifying element of this group of thirty independent winegrowers.
Producers bottles have a special form called Spécial Club. In this bottle, we find the best of each. This cuvee represents the quintessence of each field on a given vintage.
The Club establishes very strict rules for its members : Spécial Club production is only possible in exceptional years of harvest; the cuvée shall contain vintage wines have met the criteria of several tastings (in 'clear wines' before bottling, and after 3 years of aging in bottles) carried out by a committee, composed of professionals, winemakers and wine growers.
For the consumer, it is a genuine quality label...
