Mario Rinaldi in the VineyardMario Rinaldi was born in Paris and raised from 2 to 17 years of age in the Champagne region. He returned to Paris in his late teens to complete studies in Social Sciences and promptly started his professional life. In 1977, Mario Rinaldi decided to leave France and came to the United States in a quest for new experiences and adventure. Mario Rinaldi briefly attended Middlebury College in Vermont State on the student exchange program. Later, Mario Rinaldi transferred to Hunter College in New York City where he studied American Literature and Political Science besides living a very interesting Frenchman lifestyle and traveling extensively throughout the country.

Mario Rinaldi’s introduction to the food and wine industry was when he returned to France in 1982 to fulfill a career by working for a well known gastronomic guide “Champerard”. He pursued his activities in that field to take on a position as commercial director for a mail order catalogue “Le Jeune Cadre d’Entreprise’, specializing in regional French wines.
Upon Mario Rinaldi’s return to the United States in 1992 he worked as a representative for a Champagne House named Charles de Cazanove for 2 years.
Later his family called upon his services for a unique opportunity to represent and introduce exclusively the Champagne Paul Goerg for the U.S. market which led Mario Rinaldi to become the brand ambassador in the United States until the present time.

In the beginning, it was a question of a few dedicated, ambitious and determined wine producers joining forces to promote their terroir and produce a truly outstanding champagne.

100% ChardonnayBlanc de Blancs

Pale golden colour with a very intense mousse. The nose is dominated by blossom, spices, and ripe fruits notes.  In the mouth the wine is perfectly balanced. Its fresh taste is due to the chardonnay grape and its maturity to a blend of three different years.

85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot NoirBrut Rosé

First of all there is a fascinating salmon pink colouring. Then the surprse of a wine matching elegance with personality. Subtle red fruit aromas on the nose are mirrored in the mouth where 15% of red Pinot Noir wine brings flavours of raspberry and strawberry to compliment the liveliness, freshness and power of the majority Chardonnay.

60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot NoirBrut Tradition

In common with all Paul-Goerg non-vintage champagnes, this subtle blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir is made from 50% reserve wines.

Glittering pale gold colouring, complex nose with scents of honey, flowers and preserved fruits. In the mouth, the wine is well-balanced, offering roundness and persistence. The fine soft bubbles melt away to a gentle and slightly spicy finish. A wine of great class.

Portrait of Paul Goerg

In the beginning, it was a question of a few dedicated, ambitious and determined wine producers joining forces to promote their terroir and produce a truly outstanding champagne.  The year was 1950 and, altogether, there were 19 of them.

The end result of this association was Champagne Paul Goerg, which now brings together 110 producers that carefully tend 120 hectares of Premier Cru vines planted on the renowned Cote des Blancs.

This association of producers this decided to christen their champagne Paul Goerg.  As an eminent character from the area in the 19th century, a regional councillor and mayor of Vertus, Paul Goerg left his own distinctive mark on the period through his commitment to the town’s growers and producers.  Champagne Paul Goerg pays tribute to a man who was extraordinarily proud of his region and greatly attached to its terroir.Champagne Racks at Paul Goerg

Paul Goerg’s personality, his love of and respect for the terroir, his dedication and the values to which he was so very attached are now reflected in a champagne that judiciously combines finesse, fruitiness, complexity, and character.

Paul Goerg Vineyards

In the making of Paul Goerg champagne, every detail is vital, a major asset and guarantee of the perpetuation of a certain house style.

An outstanding vineyard designated as Premier Cru, meticulous selection at harvest time and delicate pressing to glean only the quintessential qualities of the grape.  The awakening and reawakening of the wine in a modern vat-room that meets with the most exacting of requirements.  The safeguarding of tradition upon the introduction of modern techniques.  The emergence of subtle blends embodying the aromas of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes.  The incorporation of superb reserve wines to guarantee consistency of quality.  Followed by cellar ageing well beyond the requirements for the appellation.

But also all those who contribute their efforts, their talent and knowledge, their shared dedication and the painstaking attention they pay to every tiny detail.  The pride that comes from offering a top-quality champagne, a panoply of cuvees enriched by a medly of aromas and nuances, reminiscent of an artist’s painting palette.

The incorporation of superb reserve wines to guarantee consistency of quality.  Followed by cellar ageing well beyond the requirements for the appellation.
