ColorIntense yellowBouquetAromas of white fruit, followed by white floral notes of hawthorn and acacia, rounded by citrus aromas and a hint of vanilla.PalateThis initial impression on the palate is intense, yet delicate with a fine balance between structure and acidity giving harmony and elegance. Citrus notes of grapefruit and pineapple are sustained by a little vanilla on the palate, which is beautifully balanced and rounded with a long, elegant finish.
Wine Maker Notes
The grapes are pressed in the village of Cramant on Perrier- Jouët’s traditional wooden presses. After it is racked, the clear juice is transported to Épernay for fermentation. In the cellar, modern stainless steel tanks provide precise temperature control for the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations of the base wine. A liqueur de triage of sugar, yeast and base wine is added to the bottle, but of only 9 grams, in order for the natural subtlety of the prestige cuvée to shine through. Finally, the wine is bottle aged for six years in the chalk cellars of Perrier Jouët to maintain its balance and freshness.
