Michel's 2010 Brut Special Club is a bend of 50/50 Meunier and barrel fermented Chardonnay from 50-year-old vineyards. The 2010 was disgorged in January 2015 with dosage of seven grams per liter. It's clear and rich on the nose, offering dried fruits and sweet cherries, including the skins. Very delicate and pure on the palate, light and charmingly well balanced, this Cuvée has a well structured and persistent finish. I suppose the 2008 will gain complexity over the years and indeed there is enough substance for development.

José Michel is well known for his Pinot Meunier, based in Moussy (Coteaux Sud d'Epernay), which covers 50% of his ten hectares of vines in the Marne valley. Indeed I like his straight and very delicate Pinot Meunier Brut, which is a lovely aperitif but should also ripen very well over a couple of years.

 

Jose Michel Champagne
The adventure started in the 19th century with Paul Michel (1860-1936) who was the first to harvest the grapes and bottle the wines in 1912. He was followed by Raymond Michel (1902-1971) who developed the manipulation techniques and extended the production of Champagne as well as the area under grape production.
Lastly, José Michel, winegrower from 1955, a visionary uncompromising regarding quality, adapted each of the three grape varieties of the Champagne region to soil conditions and ideal exposure that can bring the best results.
The family tradition is bound to continue, with three sons and five grandchildren.
Wine making is one of the oldest arts that reflects not only the character of the terroir but also the talents of the wine grower. José Michel has understood this since a very long time.
Proud of his traditional knowledge acquired over four generations, José Michel closely watches over each stage of the production, from pressing to disgorging, from dosing to shipping operations.
