Champagne, France – Chardonnay/Meunier/ Pinot Noir– Alcohol 12.5%
This wine is a montage of organically farmed Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier acrossdifferent Premier Cru plots in the western part of the Montagne de Reims, with Pinot Noir leading the way. Generously, this contains about 40% of the perpetual reserve (or “taste memory”) that was started about 50 years ago, which gives the wine extra depth and complexity. Aged for 4 years on the lees and finished with a very low dosage (added sweetness), this is a rich and almost autumnal wine – red stone fruits, baked apple, walnuts and baking spices – a special wine for the special day or gift.
Deliciously paired with sweet savoury cured meats and dried figs.
