2 x Forget-Chemin 'Marie Forget' Extra-Brut NV

Displaying lifted aromatics of freshly baked bread, ginger spice, peach, and hazlenuts.The palate is rich and full, with layers of toast, dried fruts and spice that is balanced by cleansing citrus-rind acidity. Quite expansive in the glass and shows off great depth of fruit. Consider perhaps serving in a large wine glass such as a Bordeaux glass to show at its best. A wine that continues to expand and unfold in the glass. This is a top class cuvée, powerful and complex with wonderful balance and length. 5gms/ltr dosage

Fruit is sourced from 30 plots in the  Premier and Grand Crus: Ludes, Mailly, Verzenay, Taissy and Chigny-les-Roses. This array of different parcels very much expresses the house style. A blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier, however the mix is not revealed. The base wine is 2018 with reserves from three previous years. (As for which three years used remains a family-secret, with a large resource of reserve wines spanning decades, it is the chef's decision with each release) 

2 x Forget-Chemin 'Special Club' 2016

Every 'Special Club' release represents the very best from each producer. I always eagerly await the latest from Forget-Chemin, consistently one of my favourite Special Clubs. The family are fortunate to possess 60 parcels of vines scattered across ten villages which gives an array of choice when producing the Special Club.Thierry Forget is adamant that there cannot be a 'formula' to create a Special Club release, as each vintage is different and the best possible expression will vary accordingly. I've seen the list of the blends used for the last twenty Special Clubs and every single release is unique!

The 2016 is vibrant in the glass with an ultra-fine bead, Aromatics of apples, spice and white floral notes lead to a pristine, fine palate that is still very tight at present but hints as to what it's to become in the future. Layers of baked white fruits, almonds and spice with a honeyed, creamy mouthfeel balanced by cleansing, mineral acidity. This will continue to develop and improve for many years to come

The 2016 is a blend of 50% Chardonnay (Ludes), 25% Pinot Noir (Verzenay)7 25% Meunier (Taissy)
