From those wonderful folks who brought us Grandin and Charles Boisset, the vineyards of Louis Bouillot lie within one of France's most superior appellations along the Nuits Saint Georges. A slightly effervescent wine, defined as Cremant
, dominated by Pinot Noir, the balance of Chardonnay, Gamay and Aligote, sourced from grand old vineyards in La Bourgogne
. Perle de Vigne Grand Reserve Brut is a superb representation of all that's noble and sophisticated about the House of Louis Bouillot, established 1877.
After a century and a half of savoir-faire, the estate vineyards of Louis Bouillot continue to yield harvests which are highly specialized for Cremant de Bourgogne, establishing international renown for excellence in this refined style of sparkling. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Gamay and Aligote grapes are vinified to true Methode Traditionelle. Parcels are treated to a pneumatic press, vinification, bottling and a course of riddling, followed by disgorgement and liqueur doseage. Perle de Vigne Grand Reserve Brut is naturally fermented and matured twenty four months in its own bottle, achieving maximum aromatic qualities and finesse imparted by time spent on sedimentery yeast lees.
A fine, petulant wine, amber, golden rose hue. Bakery notes and aromatic yeast bouquet, buttered toast, strudel and freshly cut pear. Vanilla and almond flavours define a creamy palate that's perfectly balanced between lemon acidity and richness of fruit, a long enduring aftertaste, lingering on notes of honey and gingerbread, in full articulation of Nuits Saint Georges.
