Prevoteau-Perrier "Adrienne Lecouvreur" Brut Champagne (Previously $40)

SKU #1140371

The Adrienne Lecouvreur cuvee from Prevoteau-Perrier is given a lot of time in the cellar, and the results are a fabulous, integrated, and elegant Champagne. This wine is given over four years on the lees and is assembled from more than half reserve wines from three past harvests. It is comprised of half each Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the family's own estate. I find the wine to have a lot of concentration and vibrancy without sacrificing the great creamy texture. On the nose, the wine is very forthcoming with baguette, nougat, and even some citric elements. The Lecouvreur has a lot of laid-back complexity for such a low price!

Over the weekend Cinnamon and I invited some friends for dinner, and we started the festivities with a couple of the cuvees from Prevoteau Perrier since we were so excited that they had just arrived. We served this in the backyard with some popcorn with black truffle butter and it was even better than I remembered it from tasting with the family this spring. The Adrienne Lecouvreur delivers on the fancy Champagne promise of elegance; the complexity is there, but upfront it is all pleasure. The bottle went very quickly indeed!

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
