Bottle Champagne Petraea

Petraea champagne is created using a method similar to that of the Solera. Each year, the previous year's wine is added in the proportion of 25%. This means that the wine contains some of all the earlier vintages in decreasing proportions. This perpetual reserve was started in 1997 .

Wine: Petraea
Appellation: Champagne Brut Nature
Terroir: Clay and limestone terroirs from the Marne Valley and the Montagne de Reims.
Average age of the vines: 35 years
Composition: 60% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay,
20% Pinot Meunier.
Dosage: 0 g/L
Bottle sizes: 75 cl bottle ("Symphonie" shape or
Classic Champagne shape)

Vinification :
Only "la cuvée" (the first juice from the first pressing) is used to make this champagne. Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Vinified on fine lees in old small oak barrels and large casks with batonnages (beating in). Malo-lactic fermentation takes place. Unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting notes
The nose is intense and generous. Scents of fruits, of white flowers with spicy hints. In the mouth the champagne is broad and rich, powerful though still possessing good freshness.

Suggestions
Serve at 10 °C (50°F) as an aperitif, or at table with fish, poultry, white meats and cheeses.
