2016 The 3 Grapes of Champagne
Perrot-Batteux et Filles Cuvée Hélixe Blanc de Blancs
This is classically elegant Côte des Blanc Champagne. With grapes grown in soil of pure chalk, you can taste it in the cuvée and there is nothing else like it in the world; this is a classic example of why Champagne is special. It is light, has huge acids, but also tropical fruit undertones. The finish is long, lemony, and has a touch of sweetness.
Jean Baillette-Prudhomme Cuvée Memoris Premier Cru
The golden color is luminous, with a fine effervescence and a delicate mousse. The cuvée has 8+ years of age, but the nose is fresh, with delicate hints of almond, minerals, and overall purity. The body has a nice richness with dried fruit and toast coming through, but it is the crisp acidity that leads the overall personality of this aged cuvée.
Didier-Ducos Fils Cuvée Brut
Light yellow with green undertones, the first nose is very aromatic with hints of bread crust and yeast. Then the palate heads toward lemon and buttered toast. It’s not rich, but in our portfolio, it is one of the fuller-bodied brut selections. It has classic and true Champagne character with a special gift for lovers of the creamy texture that Pinot Meunier offers.
