Tradition Premier Cru Extra Brut



Our Two Cents

This non-vintage blend represents a snapshot of Mathilde’s vineyards (80% chardonnay and  20% pinot noir) and accounts for 45% of her annual production (3000 bottles per year.) The chardonnay in this cuvée and all her cuvées are from Vaudemange, and her pinot noir is from the grand cru village of Verzy.

SEE: Pale gold with bronze reflections. Supple fine mousse and lively effervescence.

SMELL: Brioche crumbs, fresh cracked hazelnut, yellow apple skin.

TASTE: On the palate the fruit comes through as younger and fresher with notes of green apple and citrus. Peach fuzz and daffodil also come to mind. Energetic acidity is supported by medium weight in the mid-palate, and punctuated by rich minerality. The finish is precise and clean with a long, lingering impression. 

PAIR: We love a good kitchen-sink bowl … Leftover rotisserie chicken and steamed baby broccoli over nutty brown rice. Or, better yet, the perfect crisp companion to hot soup dumplings in homemade chicken broth with fresh herbs.

  • Can you provide recommendations?

    We thought you’d never ask! Whether you’re choosing Champagne for yourself or a gift for someone else, fatcork celebration specialists have you covered! Need help pairing a bottle from your club allocation for your dinner party? We can help there too! In our online bottle shop, you’ll discover an assortment of beautifully curated bundles and gift sets. If you still can’t find what you’re looking for, call or email us, and we’d be happy to help you navigate our inventory of delicious bubbles.

  • Do I have to be a club member to shop bottles?

    No way José. All are welcome to purchase any of our delicious bubbles online or in person at the fatcork cave.

  • What do I do if my Champagne is corked?

    Damp, wet cardboard? That’s not on the tasting note! Cork taint is the worst, but all fatcork Champagnes use natural cork closures, so it does happen on the rare occasion. Please let us know, and will happily replace the bottle. Before you throw it away, snap a photo of the back label and we can refer to the code for reference. Email it to along with the order number.

  • Can I return or exchange my bottles?

    We aim to please. Call or email us, so we can talk about what happened and how we can make things right.
