Description

Details of wine

An extraordinary Champagne, obtained from vines of at least 50 years of age of the 2006 and 2007 vintages that rest on the lees for at least 60 months. The name Pierri-Henri derives from the union of the two names of Charpentier's ancestors who founded the winery in 1920.
Golden yellow in color, with fine and persistent perlage. Marked and varied nose with floral notes, candied fruit, small pastries, oriental spices and mentholated sensations. In the mouth it reveals a decisive and imposing body, but without ever abandoning its typical elegance.
