Champagne Mandois Brut Origine

Hugh Johnson has written that Mandois is a "house to watch" and the Wine Spectator has previously awarded this fizz a terrific 91 points, outperforming some rather more famous rivals... 

Tasting Notes

Colour

A pale golden yellow color with a rich perlage

Nose

The nose releases a bouquet rich in fragrance and intensity with ginger brioche, white flowers and fresh plums.

Palate

The flavor is straight and elegant but pleasantly opulent: candied cedar, salted caramel and honeysuckle.

 

Champagne Mandois Brut Origine

Production

Champagne Brut Origine from Mandois represents the purest and most typical expression of the elegance of this great Maison. Produced from a traditional assembly of the 3 prince vines of Champagne (40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier) from all the crus of the property in the Epernay area, it is further enriched in elegance and intensity by wines of 3 consecutive vintage.

History

The Mandois family have been growers in Pierry, a suburb of Epernay since 1735. Their estate grown fruit still supplies them with 70% of their needs for the 20,000 cases per year that they produce. Claude Mandois believes firmly in the use of barrels for making top-notch Champagne, and his whole range of wines are produced in oak. The Origine is a brand new cuvee from the family that is tank fermented and then aged in old barrels for 6 months before being aged an additional three years on the lees.
