About This Wine

The Champagne house of Louis Nicaise is located in Hautvillers.

That’s the village made famous by Dom Perignon, for generations the man presumed to have “invented” Champagne — that is, a wine with bubbles in the bottle. Whether Perignon, himself, was responsible for “creating” Champagne is now a matter of strong debate, but there’s no question that Hautvillers has become a hub of sparkling winemaking.

The Nicaise family has been crafting Champagne for four generations, and produces just 6,000 cases per year. The Brut Reserve represents about half of the total production, and it’s made entirely from grapes grown in the family’s Premier Cru vineyards.

This release is a blend of 40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier, with 60% of the cuvee coming from the 2011 harvest, 25% from 2010, and 15% from 2009. Floral, fruitful and refreshing, it pairs perfectly with seafood, spicy fare or fruit-based desserts.

About Champagne

Champagne is a sparkling wine produced by inducing the in-bottle secondary fermentation of the wine to effect carbonation. It is produced exclusively within the Champagne region of France.
