Additional Wine Information

Story
Vertus is a small town in Champagne, specifically in the Côte des Blancs region, which specializes in growing Chardonnay thanks to chalky soils and minuscule amounts of clay. In Champagne, to make wines solely from Chardonnay, the quality of the fruit must be high, as most Champagne relies on a solid foundation of Pinot Noir for structure and body. The vineyards around Vertus, however, produce Chardonnay that is structured and round, without losing Chardonnay’s characteristic finesse. Paul Goerg was the mayor of this town in 1876, and the local producers who banded together in the early 1980s to make this wine chose to name it after him in honor of the former mayor’s winefriendly ways. Vintage Champagnes are rare; most houses only declare a vintage wine three or four times a decade, in exceptional years, such as 2002, which was lauded for producing wines of great depth, acidity and balance. Vintage Champagnes are often capable of aging for decades in good storage conditions, though they may also be enjoyed young.
Sense
This luscious Champagne opens with hints of green apple, quince, white flowers and lemon.
Savor
Lively and intense, this gorgeous 10-year-old Champagne has youthful features like lemon and grapefruit flavors, as well as some of the polish and savor (nutty and toasty flavors) that comes with years of aging in the bottle.
Serve
Champagnes made entirely from Chardonnay grapes tend to be lighter and brighter than those made from Pinot Noir grapes, suggesting foods that have similar qualities. While this wine makes for a gorgeous aperitif when served solo, it also shows beautifully when paired with appetizers that range from fish tartares to vegetable or bacon tarts to oysters or salads. In addition, its bit of age gives it a burnished, toasty quality that makes it lovely with bruschetta, gougères or baked confections. For great pairings, try it with dishes like Potato and Gruyère Tartlets or Coconut Shrimp with Lime (recipes at williams-sonoma.com).
Serving Instructions
Serve well chilled: refrigerate the bottle for 45 minutes before serving.
