Fresne Ducret Arquemie No. 2 Champagne Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru
$94.00 / bottle
Release Date September 2, 2021
Vintages #: 10291
750ml bottle
Mineral & Fresh

Fresne-Ducret is rich in family history and has been rooted in the premier cru village of Villedommange since the mid 1800s. Originally growing grapes for the big champagne houses, it wasn’t until the end of the second world war that the family decided to make their own wine. The tradition carries on today with Pierre Fresne and his wife Daniella (an Oakville ex-pat). Their philosophy is to produce wines that best exemplify the terroir of Villedommange, and they do this with sustainability in mind.

In 2014 Pierre Fresne began a new adventure in creating a series of micro-batch cuvées for connoisseurs of champagne. Each year, he creates one or two “experiments” to try techniques that he thinks will yield interesting wines. This collection of craft champagnes is called Arquémie, the French word for alchemy used in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Defined as a “truly regal science and an undoubtedly divine study…it makes a thousand different waters, a thousand oils, different liqueurs and infinite other things without which we could not live comfortably or even live at all”, the name Arquémie truly embodies the spirit of the collection.

This beautiful bubbly is quite intense on the nose with citrus fruit notes dominating at first, followed by almond and floral notes. Clean and crisp in the mouth. Creamy texture with delicate citrus, herbal and mineral flavours. Long and refreshing
finish.

Oysters and caviar are classic partners with Blanc de Blancs as they match the intensity and freshness of the wine. Also look to fried foods, including Fish 'n' Chips and calamari, or smoked fish such as salmon or trout.

Rich & Complex

Fresne-Ducret is rich in family history and has been rooted in the premier cru village of Villedommange since the mid 1800s. Originally growing grapes for the big champagne houses, it wasn’t until the end of the second world war that the family decided to make their own wine. The tradition carries on today with Pierre Fresne and his wife Daniella (an Oakville ex-pat). Their philosophy is to produce wines that best exemplify the terroir of Villedommange, and they do this with sustainability in mind.

This vintage Champagne is perfect representation of the Fresne Ducret style, balancing freshness and aromatic complexity. It is crystalline with a pale golden colour. Good effervescence that continues long after opening. The nose is fresh, dominated by floral notes with hints of citrus. In the mouth, a savoury dimension with a balanced astringency, with aromas of orange zest and honey. The wine is lively, dynamic, and moreish, a vintage still in its youth.

Serve with goat cheese, small game, or rhubarb millefeuille.
