Barrat-Masson, Les Margannes, Brut Nature NV

RRP £51.99

There aren’t a lot of grower-producers in the area around Sézanne, south of the Côte des Blancs, as most growers sell their grapes to négociants. Aurélie Barrat and her husband Loïc Masson began making Champagne in 2011, producing distinctive wines such as this Les Margannes, a pure chardonnay from organically grown chardonnay vines in the village of Bethon. The current release is all 2013, showing fragrant, high-toned flavours of apple, guava and fresh ginger, accented by a bright, saline chalkiness.
