"This is an exciting and unique Champagne from a little known village called Cuchery. It is made by the man that gives the wine his name, Michel Dervin, who is also the wine maker for Domaine J. Laurens in Limoux. The wine has a wonderful brioche and subtle fruit nose. The flavors are quite concentrated and complex and it has a great toastiness as well as a lightness on its refreshing and long finish. The cuvee is a blend of 1999 and 1995 vintages. It is made out of 95% estate fruit from small plots in the villages of Cuchery, Damery, Reuil, and Chapelle Monthadon in the picturesque valley of the Marne. He buys in a little Chardonnay from Pierry. The grape break down is 60% Meunier, 35% Pinot Noir and 5% Chardonnay. If you have never had a valley of the Marne Meunier based Champagne, this is a great place to start! -Gary Westby, K&L"
