Petraea 2012


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 50%. This means that the wine contains some of all the earlier vintages in decreasing proportions. This perpetual reserve was restarted in 2012 as organicchampagne.

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 25 hl oak casks with batonnages (beating in). Malo- lactic fermentation takes place. Unfined and unfiltered. Reducted gas pression for vinous style and elegance.



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.



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