Prestige « Les Pêcherines » Vieilles Vignes

When a single plot can be appreciated on its own…

Personality

A floral and fruity blend, mainly of Chardonnay, from our oldest vines in a plot called ‘Les Pêcherines’.

The days when peach trees were planted between the vineyards have long disappeared, yet… cuvée Prestige still reminds us of the aromas and the incredible delicacy of those vine peaches. Every year when we taste the still wines, this plot is always the best. The low yields from the old vines planted in 1969 give the wines a rare array of rich aromas. The plot benefits from perfect exposure to the sun
and from a prominent vein of chalk which account for the exceptional finesse for which champagnes from this plot have long been renowned.

A marvel of elegance and controlled power with a finish marked by exotic fruit and toasty overtones. Cuvée Prestige is a remarkable champagne for lovers of fine and distinctive wines.
