Cuvée Royale Brut, Champagne Joseph Perrier NV
Joseph Perrier became known from 1825 thanks to this style of champagne. The classic expression of the House style.
The Cuvée Royale Brut is a superbly intense, light-golden yellow sparkled with copper. The initial aroma is discreet, fine and wonderfully complex. A bouquet of apples, pears and white peaches evolves alongside elegant, more tropical flavours of pineapple. Lively, yet supple in the mouth, combining complexity, lightness, body and freshness. The floral notes of white flowers give way to the fruity ones of vine peaches towards the end, with a pleasantly tangy finish.
