Full transparency...we’ve never, ever, had a bad bottle of Special Club Champagne. It just might be the safest, surest bet in the entire wine world. Read up on the rigorous selection details here, but basically, this is the highest tier that Grower Champagnes can achieve. Part peer review, part expert analysis, all blind. This is one of our house favorites.

Remy Massin is a family-run producer that can trace its roots on the sunny hillsides of Ville sur Acre, all the way back to 1865. Now, five generations of growing grapes later, this exceptional producer consistently crafts some of our favorite cuvees to be found in any corner of the sparkling wine world. Set in the heart of the Cote des Bar region, this is the southernmost edge of Champagne, closely matching the Kimmeridgian soils of nearby Chablis. Their vineyards are predominantly planted to pinot noir, with about 20% dedicated to chardonnay and a scant 5% set aside for the pinot blanc used to make this cuvee.

Pinot blanc is a lesser known but accepted variety in Champagne – though still incredibly rare to see blended in any amount, and especially as a single varietal to make a top-tier wine like this. The aromatics are so beautifully no other Champagne you’ve ever had. Fresh white flowers – alyssum, jasmine, iceberg roses, then golden plums and honeydew melons with flavors of tangerine, ginger shortbread cookies, and chantilly cream… this is simultaneously laser-focused and remarkably friendly wine, with a long, electrifying, and spicy finish. Of the nearly thirty grower-producers who are members of the illustrious Club de Trésors de Champagne (aka Special Club), this is the ONLY 100% pinot blanc offering to make the cut. It is simply spectacular!

The 2017 release is here and we are simply enthralled yet again. I really can’t stress enough how rare this is… of the seven grape varieties allowed in Champagne, pinot blanc, arbane, petit meslier, and pinot gris account for only 0.3% of plantings COMBINED! This is a must-have for any Champagne lover...and at the spectacular price we secured? Grab a handful!

About the Producer

Champagne Rémy Massin et fils comes as a result of a passion passed on through the generations in Ville-sur-Arce, in the area called Cote des Bar. Rémy created the brand Champagne Rémy Massin et fils in 1974. He was joined by his children Sylvère, who studied viticulture oenology, and Florence, who took charge of the administrative part of the business, the export and the shipment management. Now being run by the fifth generation, respectful of the land inherited from their ancestors, in the pursuit of excellence to create a hand-crafted premium Champagne. Their vineyards accounts for about 22 hectares : 75% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Blanc. The average age of the vines is 30 years old. The soils are mainly composed of limestone and clay, inserted in Kimmeridgian geological structure like those as in Chablis vineyards. Champagne Rémy Massin et fils is working for a sustainable viticulture with a conscious investment in the maintenance of ecological relationships so the vineyard is growing in a balanced natural environment.
