Wine of the Week: Bernard Remy "Carte Blanche"

This week's featured wine is Bernard Remy's "Carte Blanche". With only 800 cases produced, this grower champagne is the ideal sparkling wine for the final holidays of the season. Made from 60% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay, and 5% Pinot Meunier and grown in Clay-Limestone soil, the Carte Blanche is clean, fresh, with classic notes of grapefruit and lemon curd with a slight salinity. 

Capitalizing on the recent upswing in attention for grower Champagne, smaller houses that have been overshadowed by the large grands marques are now gaining more recognition. Bernard Rémy is one such producer. Founded in 1968 in the southerly village of Allemant in the heart of the Cotes des Blancs, Champagne Bernard Rémy debuted on the domestic market in France in the early 70’s. Bernard’s son Rudy began working under the tutelage of his father in 1996, and completely took the helm at Champagne Bernard Rémy in 2008. Still though Bernard is never too far from sight. This father-son collaboration now offers a fine range of local, Grand Cru, vintage, and rosé Champagnes. The sophistication of the wines and approachable price points highlight Champagne Bernard Rémy’s persistent quest for perfection in each aspect of their product.
