Champagne

Emilien Allouchery is a 4th generation winemaker and part of the new generation of Champagne producers. Having worked in many key wine regions around the world perfecting his technical skills and knowledge, he ultimately returned to the helm at Allouchery-Perseval in 2006.

Wines from this Premier Cru property covering just 8 hectares in Ecueil, in Montagne de Reims, are made with maximum respect to the terroir and the environment. Certified HVE (a French certification meaning High Environmental Value), the vines are never treated with insecticides or herbicides, and only natural composts are used. The soils are ploughed, not treated, all grapes are harvested by hand, and the yield is deliberately limited to maximise quality and concentration.

From the 300 villages present in the Champagne production area, only 44 of these are Premier Cru sites, making top quality, small production, vintage grower Champagnes an increasingly rare commodity.

Sommelier Tasting Notes

Fresh citrus and yellow fruit notes with just a hint of liquorice freshness on the nose. Poised and elegant on the palate with brioche and dried fruit notes, with lively acidity accentuating the delicate bubbles.
