Brut Tradition champagnes are generally the house champagnes created mainly from the grapes of one harvest. This means that in fact, these champagnes often demonstrate the best features of the specific harvest year.
Drouilly is one of very few winemakers to use oak barrels across his range of champagnes. The Cuvée Tradition is from the harvest of 2006, aged for 4 years on oak, which gives it a deep gold colour and rich earthy flavour. One of only a handful of champagnes to have won 3 stars (an exceptional wine) from Le Guide Hachette in 2011. Another perfect accompaniment with roast dinners and stronger meats. Available by the case here. Pair with Honey & Sesame Macarons.
A typical entrepreneurial Champenois family, the lady of the house manages their modern tourist accommodation whilst two of the 3 sons work the champagne business. From the quaint little village of Meurville, Perron-Beauvineau delight with this Extra Dry champagne, which is sweeter than Brut. With all champagnes aged for a minimum of five years, this champagne boasts candied fruit flavours and a great length. Great with puddings!
