Joseph Perrier Cuvée Royale Brut Vintage
The 2008 vintage is one of the most balanced of the decade. This wine reflects the experience of the House in putting together a champagne of such style, it is particularly well balanced, with great depth. Its simply invites celebration.
The intense and concentrated nose suggests fragrances of white flowers. Full and concentrated on the palate it balances power and delicacy.
With its rich fruit and fresh style this champagne will accompany dishes as diverse as a carpaccio of Saint-Jacques with vanilla oil and Bourbon pepper, pan-fried duck liver, or a Camembert from Normandy.
- Aging: 6 years miminum
- Dosage: 4.5 g/L
“The latest vintage release from this producer based in Châlons-en-Champagne is very much in the house style with its crisp acidity and tight texture. It is towards the dry end of Brut with apple and citrus flavors and little sign yet of aging. Although this textured wine is ready to drink, it will be better from 2018.” 93 points, Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast
