Life got you down? Can’t buy a break? Fear not. The Champagne harvest is in and it looks very good.
Champagne Chassenay d’Arce is a co-op of 130 winegrowing families in Champagne’s southernmost region of Cote des Bar. The managing director calls the harvest “one of the finest in the past 10 years.” Winemaker Brice Becard said the initial appraisal reveals “character, frank and precise expressions, boasting nice fruit, fleshy and concentrated matter with well marked and melted acidity.”
