Vintner Tasting Notes 

BACKGROUND
This luxury brand was started out of audacity and ambition, when Nicolas Feuillatte, a wealthy Parisian coffee importer, and Henri Macquart, founder of the centre vinicole de la Champagne after the excessive grape harvest of 1970, joined forces. For Feuillatte, his adventure had started with his brother in Ardre Valley near Reims, to create their own brand in order to please and spoil their personal friends. They rapidly understood that their friends’ thirst was not so easily quenchable. Things have grown ever since.

BLEND
Terroir Premier Cru is the richest blend of Premier Cru vineyards available on the market. Representing its region of origin, a blend of the three classic grape varieties in equal measure imparts balance and surprising potential to each of the component wines contained within, including the Premier Cru wines of Rilly-la-Montagne, Chigny-les Roses, Jouy-les-Reims, Sermiers, Champillon, Cuis, Cumières and Hautvillers. 

NOSE
On the nose, sweet notes of acacia honey, pear, white fruits and fresh citrus give way to full- flavored notes. 

PALATE
On the palate, spicy notes of Pinot Noir from the south of Montagne de Reims bring intensity and smooth structure to this finely-chiseled wine, caressed by the velvet-textured Meunier, which exudes finesse. Finally, a salty, vibrant burst of energy, together with great poise activate the taste-buds on the finish. 

FOOD PAIRING
Scrambled eggs and fresh scones for brunch, salmon gravlax, prawns or other fresh seafood, spring vegetables, potato chips.

CHEESES
Mature comté, fresh goat cheese.
