The 2008 Mareuil-sur-Aÿ Extra Brut is one of a trio of single-plot cuvées, of which 2008 is the second vintage after 2006. Grown in several upper plots of the Clos des Goisses that are entirely planted with Pinot Noir (on more clayey soils), vinified 44% in wooden barrels (without malolactic fermentation), the 2008 Mareuil offers a clear, fresh and precise bouquet of red fruits, dark cherries and black chocolate. The palate is beautifully pure and fresh, very fine, elegant and light but also complex and is provided with a long, tensioned, very mineral and exciting finish. It is filigreed, very salty and stimulating in the aftertaste. Aged for at least seven years in the House’s cellars, the 2008 is only the second vintage after 2006. Disgorged in September 2017. Tasted at the domaine in April 2018. Total production: 3,339 bottles. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

The 2008 Extra Brut Black White Mareuil-sur-Aÿ has really come along since I tasted it last year. Today, the 2008 is bright, fresh and wonderfully nuanced, with plenty of floral and savory notes on display. Time in the glass does wonders. What I like most about the 2008 is its freshness. The Mareuil-sur-Aÿ emerges from two parcels on the southern side of Mareuil, both at the top of the Clos des Goisses, made in equal parts steel and oak. About 45% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. Disgorged April, 2017. Dosage is 4.25 grams per liter. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
