Popular wisdom has it that there are just three grape varieties permitted in bona fide sparkling wine from the Champagne region of France: chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier. There are in fact a few more, including pinot blanc, the obscure arbane and petit meslier. You’ll find those three along with the three standard varieties in this offbeat, luxurious blend. With just 8,000 bottles produced, it’s uncommonly smooth for a brut, silky with flavours of fresh and cooked apple, lemon, peach and honey laced with a suggestion of mineral and a touch of spice.
