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. - Stephan Reinhardt

The 2008 Extra Brut Blanc de Noirs Mareuil-sur-Aÿ is a blend of three parcels in Val au Froid lieu-dit within Clos des Goisses. Pretty, delicate and understated, with lovely Pinot character and tons of nuance, the 2008 is super-expressive today. Sweet red cherry, Mirabelle, wild flowers add striking aromatic presence to play off a core of pliant fruit. This is one of the more open-knit, accessible 2008s readers will come across. Dosage is 4.25 grams per liter. Disgorged: August, 2019. -- Antonio Galloni

A smaller percentage of the vins clairs are raised in tank and do undergo malo. The wine was disgorged in September of 20176 and finished with a dosage of 4.5 grams per liter. Not all of the fruit hails directly from the Clos des Goisses for this bottling, with a small percentage of the grapes coming from plots that lie adjacent to the famous Clos. This was first produced in the 2006 vintage and this outstanding 2008 is the second vintage to be released. It offers up a superb young bouquet of white peach, apple, patissière, chalky soil tones, a touch of dried flowers and a gentle topnote of smokiness. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and beautifully structured, with ripe, well-integrated acids, excellent depth at the core, elegant mousse, impressive purity and a long, complex and zesty finish. This is certainly approachable at age ten, but in reality is still a young wine and I would be inclined to let it blossom with a bit more time in the cellar. It is a beautiful wine in the making.
