A. Margaine Champagne is looking for freshness in all of his wines. To that end, the malos are often blocked, although that is a decision Margaine makes for each vintage in its entirety, which means the proportion of non-malo wine in the NV cuvees is strictly a matter of vintage blend. These fine, hand-made artisan Champagnes deserve serious attention.
