Product Description

A blend of 1/3 Chardonnay and 2/3 Pinot Noir and Meunier of the year, as well as 10% reserve wines matured in barrels for two to five years, Brut Premier is matured on lees for an average of three years. With its pale golden color and fine bead, a bouquet with hints of hawthorn, almonds and toast, it has a clean attack and creamy structure. "Its style is paradoxical", says Jean-Claude Rouzaud: "a marriage between youth and age, vinosity and freshness, delicate and rounded, fruity yet without acidity." It is enjoyed as an aperitif, or as an accompaniment to light entrees of fish and shellfish.
