“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. A stunning release from Joseph Perrier – a zero dosage 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. 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.
