Winery notes: Arlaux is a tiny Champagne house run by Christine Maréchal. A recoltant-manipulant, Maréchal is based in Vrigny, and owns just 7 hectares of premier cru vines, predominantly Chardonnay but with both Pinots planted alongside, on the north-western edge of the Petite Montagne de Reims. The family have lived in Vrigny since the 13th Century, but only purchased their vineyard from the local hospital following the French Revolution in the late 18th Century. Champagne Arlaux was subsequently established, and now turns out a small range of Champagnes, amounting to just 5000 cases per annum. All of the Arlaux wines are made from the first pressing only, and following both fermentations are aged in the Arlaux cellars before release, with up to three years for the basic non-vintage cuvées, and up to five years for the reserve non-vintage and vintage wines. The entry level non-vintage is the Brut NV, a blend of 50% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier and just 10% Chardonnay.
