Brut, Champagne Pierre Courtois
When we first tasted this grower champagne from Pierre Courtois and his six hectare family vineyard, we knew that this was a champagne for us all it was fresh, elegant and spot-on in all respects. The discerning French buy single vineyard champagnes rather than the big branded ones- coming from the producers own vineyards & made in smaller quantities with great care and passion in both the vineyard and the winery. We should all do the same.
How does the wine taste?
A fine blend of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier with delicate fizz and a light creamy finish. Why pay a lot more for Moët & friends?!
