A model of pure elegance, Moutards 2006 Brut Cepages Arbane VV is also one of the more unique Champagnes I tasted this year. Arbanne is rarely seen on its own, but here it shines. Soft, floral notes lead to white peaches and mint, but the Arbane VV is above all else a wine of extraordinary textural finesse. This is a dazzling effort.
