Two exciting new champagnes showcase the marriage of innovation and tradition in time for the warmer days of Spring.
If there was ever a season with champagne on its mind, it would be Spring. Summer in Asia is too hot – who wants warm champagne? – and winter is all about staying toasty. Even Autumn is about wines that warm us from the inside out in preparation for colder days ahead.
Capturing the essence of the chardonnay grape, an iconic touchstone of the Perrier-Jouët style, the champagne house’s newly-released Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs, a vibrant and bright wine unlike any other in the Perrier‐Jouët family, has arrived in Hong Kong. With touches of wild hedgerow flowers and citrus fruits on the nose, with a tantalizing lightness on the palate that lingers blissfully, the new permanent Cuvee is presented in a crystal-clear carafe with accents of gold.
If you’re looking for an excuse to play mixologist, the latest innovation from a champagne house founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot RICH is champagne specifically designed for use in cocktails, which, for us, has Spring written all over it. Designed to be mixed with everything from spices and herd to fresh fruit and even vegetables, the new champagne is inspired by the “rich” extra-sweet wines once produced by Veuve Clicquot for Russian nobility. A blend of 45 percent pinot noir, 40 percent Pinot Meunier, and 15 percent chardonnay allows the Meunier to come through with fresh, fruit and gourmand notes.
