Champagne Paul Berthelot Cuvee Eminence Brut Premier Cru NV
Proprietary Blends | France
“Three be the things I shall never attain: Envy, content, and sufficient champagne.” -- Dorothy Parker. 2021 is closing out, and we’re feeling pretty merry, we must say. Let’s blow out some killer bubbly, shall we?!
A staff and customer favorite for a couple years running, the lovely Premier Cru bubbly called “Eminence” from Berthelot hails from vineyards in Dizy and Avenay, and they’ve been doing it since 1940. We've been patiently waiting for this to arrive direct from France, and it got here just in time to unleash before the end of the year.
This new-release "non-vintage” is actually 100% vintage Champagne despite what the label says, made entirely from the warm, lush 2016 vintage, and it just gets our motors running big time -- stone-fruity energy, baking apple pie, fresh bread, minerals, candied lemon peel, lychee and croissant dough, a touch of honeysuckle even...so GOOD! The dosage is 7 grams per liter and the blend is 70% pinot noir and 30% chardonnay.
Fun fact: There are about 49 million bubbles in a 750ml bottle of Champagne. We have about 20 cases left for those with the fastest fingers… While it lasts! You will net be let down, this stuff is amazing!
