Only 1 left!

Alcohol: 12%

Grape(s): Pinot Noir

Localization: Cumières, Champagne, France

Tasting NotesA bouquet of fragrant dried flowers first of all, followed by the fruity aromas of peaches and ripe fruit jams. Aeration reveals gourmet hints of pomegranate and stewed strawberries.

The flavour is more discrete, yet chiselled and forthright. The orange zest and grapefruit create a good body, adequate bitterness and a slightly salty finish.

Notes: 100% Pinot Noir from the single site called « La Côte à Bras » in the Premier Cru village of Cumieres.

Ageing in the cellars 7 years.

Food Pairing: An ideal aperitif with great personality, also pairing well with seafood, such as crayfish and mixed salad shoots or a lightly peppered, roasted Brittany lobster served with grapefruit coulis and beurre blanc.

The Domain: Joseph Perrier was founded in 1825 by a young Châlons en Champagne native entrepreneur, and run by the same family since 6 generations.

The galleries are of Gallo-Roman origin and extend over three kilometers in length. The chalk is pierced with skylights, ensuring optimal natural ventilation. Bottles lie ageing on laths and in pupitres in the galleries wich are located next to the winery and the production lines. These galleries are located all on one level sheltered within the hill overlooking the House and are protected by their arboretum.

The Fourmon family’s owns and manages 22 hectares of vineyards in Cumières and Hautvillers. They harvest only the best through meticulous selection and picking by hand in small baskets to preserve the delicacy and quality of the grapes.

The House of Joseph Perrier is an individual and historic one. Each champagne is carefully made to demonstrate the precise and particular style of the cuvée. In addition to the Royal Cuvées, supplied to Queen Victoria and King Edward VII, we have created many special vintage champagnes. They are in constant research on producing balanced, fresh and fruity wines.
