Jean Michel Cep Extra Brut Champagne
Retail: $59.99 – Club Card Price: $24.99
The house of Champagne Jean Michel has a tradition of grape growing and winemaking dating back to 1847. Currently they are among the ranks of a small group of what are known as Grower Champagnes. These winemakers are in contrast to the grand marques of Champagne as they only make wine from the grapes that they grow.
The Michel family makes a variety of wines, but their ‘Cep’ is a unique example made with organically farmed grapes. The blend is made up of ⅓ each Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier.
As an extra brut the wine is quite dry, noteworthy and lingering acidity with a nutty hazelnut quality. A fine example that outpaces more famous labels in terms of quality.
