Joseph Perrier Brut Champagne NV
35% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier. Bright, pale yellow. On the nose, there are abundant, ripe orchard fruits, particularly pear, with a hint of spice. Incisive Chardonnay on entry, then fine, mature Pinot Noir and Meunier fruit on the mid-palate. "An attractive, yellow-citrus style with plenty of zesty acidity on the palate. The drive and richness here are impressive. Drink now." James Suckling 91/100
The Cuvée Royale Brut is best enjoyed as an aperitif though it can be enjoyed throughout a meal. Ideal with smoked salmon or parmesan shavings.
