Description

"Immediately attractive an alluring bouquet with a complex biscuity autolysis, toasty yellow stone fruits, citrus and apple scents. Bold and highly textured mousse carrying an abundance of flavour and texture highlightling citrus, apple and brioche, biscuit layers. Complex and lengthy. Drink now and through 2025" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier

"A stunning Champagne made from 100% chardonnay; elegantly lifted aromas of citrus, apple, fresh baguette, white floral and yeast lead to a concentrated and focused palate that is finely textured and linear. It is precise and exquisite, and offers delicate fruit intensity together with mushroom complexity, brilliantly framed by crisp acidity. Wonderfully styled and composed" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Apr 2017

"Bright, light golden-yellow colour with slight lemon hues, paler edged.  The bubble is fine and persistent.  The nose is rich with clarity and finesse.  The fruit is melded with a soft, positive layering of bready and yeasty autolysis.  The nose unfolds white floral and mineral elements with aeration.  Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant with softly concentrated with flavours of white stone-fruits and white florals, entwined with subtle bready and yeasty autolytic details.  The mouthfeel is fine-featured with balanced, refreshing acidity and refined phenolic textrures providing a smooth flow.  The mousse is creamy, adding to the finesse and the wine carries to an elegant, lingering finnish of white stonefruits, bready notes and minerals.  This is an elegantly concentrated, fine, creamy textured Blanc de Blancs Champagne with white stonefruit and floral flavours and subtle bready autolysis. 100% Chardonnay fermented to 12.5% alc., with 5 g/L dosage" Raymon Chan, Apr 2017

With its low dosage, Extra-Brut is the most demanding of champagnes, requiring exceptional base wines. Straw-gold in color, its lemony nose, apple and minerality opens up to a firm and untamed palate. The wine is deep with an elegant mousse, a true Chardonnay with bold flavor. Champagne is a “must” of finesse and elegance.

Marion-Bosser is seriously sublime champagne! The Bossers are a mother and daughter operation and the grandmother also helps out at harvest time.  They only make approx 40,000 bottles of champagne per year so they are really boutique.  All their vines are Premier Cru.  They are based in Hautvillers, the same village as Dom Perignon.
