A stunning release from Joseph Perrier – a zero dosage (no sugar) 100% Pinot Noir vintage Champagne! The grapes for this wine are from Cumières and come from a single Premier Cru parcel named the Côte à Bras that happens to neighbour a vineyard that contributes to one of the world’s most famous deluxe cuvée. Golden straw yellow in colour with an enticing nose of freshly squeezed citrus fruits – grapefruit and mandarin. The palate opens with pronounced mineral notes, layered alongside zesty lemon and toasty oak characteristics. Delicate, lively and pure with a bone dry finish. This is one of the best Champagnes we’ve tasted for ages and is, we think, an absolute steal for the money. Stunning packaging too.
“Lovely, complex, scented, alluring nose. So refined, despite the ripe year, with citrus and toast and a tangy, bone dry finish.” – Tim Atkin MW, Three Wine Men
