Pierre Jourdan Blanc de Blancs NV

I love the freshness of the Chardonnay with its crisp citruscharacteristics and how it’s supported by the fine Argonneoak which we have chosen. It has a lovely fresh greenishhue even after all the time on the lees which has added anamazing creaminess to the fine mousse, so enjoy every sip!

Pierre Jourdan Blanc de Blancs is a refreshing welcomingdrink and is a must with oysters. Also pairs well with food such as Tiramisu, Crème Brûlée, tarts and nutty desserts

in the cellar : I made a conscious decision to place only 40% of the base wine into small French barrels where it then matures for 4 months, yielding a lovely creamy richness. The wine is then back-blended before it undergoes the traditional second fermentation in the bottle. Here it will mature on the lees for an extensive period of time, which contributes to the structure of the wine and its beautiful fine mousse.
