N/V Mémoire Extra Brut, Huré Frères (disgorged March 2023)

Memoire is one of the most exciting wines in the Huré cellar, drawing on the perpetual reserve started in 1982. You can feel the depth of the older wine herein this vinous and structured wine that is crying out to be drunk with food. Its deep, plush flavour get better every time you return to the glass. Brothers François and Pierre Huré have brought a wealth of experience gained from winemaking stints all over the world, from Burgundy to New Zealand, to their family domaine in the village of Ludes on the Montagne de Reims. The domaine picked up its 'Frères' in the previous generation, when three brothers ran the show. Family collaboration, hard work, and dedication across the generations has ensured the success of this 10 hectare domaine, whose wines are discreet and elegant, sometimes a little shy at first, but show a profound depth of flavour as they open up in the glass.

Tasting notes

The NV Extra-Brut Memoire is a solera-style bottling with reserve wines going back to 1982. That blend yields a Champagne with lovely complexity and nuance. Apricot, plum, spice, dried flowers and chamomile are some of the many notes that flesh out with a bit of time. The Memoire is a quirky, vinous Champagne that needs time in the glass to be fully enjoyed. This is an especially fine edition. Dosage is 2 grams per liter. Disgorged: December, 2019.
