“From the start, I set out to create an extra-pure, sugar-free and very expressive champagne. We chose the exceptionally fresh 2015 vintage and aged it for 72 months to produce roundness, power and perfect balance.”
The family-owned Joseph Perrier wine brand is located in Chalons-en-Champagne in France. They are known for their classic and vintage wines. Established in 1825 by Joseph Perrier, this champagne house is currently managed by the Pithois Family since 1888. The vineyards of this estate are set up around 21 hectares.
You can find the estate vineyards just above the Marne River and on the elevated northern slopes of Valle de la Marne. The soil quality (chalky)and extremely pleasant climate of this place helps it to produce the choicest quality of classic Champagne quality of grapes such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier.
The grapes are handpicked and treated in the cellars in a very natural way. Only manual riddling is followed in these cellars even today. Also, the cellars, which were constructed during the times of the Romans have natural light-reflecting solutions to ensure that fermentation happens in the purest way possible, without the need for any artificial additives.
The Cuvee Royale Brut NV champagne is the flagship product of the Joseph Perrier Champagne house. This drink has a great piece of history attached to it. Due to its exquisite taste and unique flavours, the Cuvee Royale Series was the chosen champagne at the royal court of England, during the time of Queen Victoria and King Edward V11.
The Cuvée Royal Brut Nature has a deep ruddy-golden colour and a light foam. Delicate roses and peonies to begin with, which gradually intertwine with pronounced spicy fragrances. Apple and pear together with peach and nectarine at first, followed by peppery flavours towards the end.
Perfect for a refreshing aperitif. This champagne pairs superbly with shushi and shellfish. And it is absolutely sublime with Asian food.
Chill in an iced bucket for 20 minutes before serving. Best enjoyed at 8-10°C.
