11th December 2017


Congratulations to Champagne Autreau with their Prestige Les Perles de La Dhuy 2011 which received a Gold medal at The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly awards 2017.

A panel of 36 top industry wine judges tasted all the entries for 2017 and were able to not only scores wines with medals, but also place them in to easy to understand categories such as Vintage: “Serious wine with highly complex aromas and a lengthy taste explosion of many layers. usually will offer a toasty tasting experience, deep golden colour and fine bubbles.

The colour of this Champagne is you and fresh:: bright yellow with light green and coppery red glints. The taste is intense. Many aromatic notes are in this blend: fresh pineapple, exotic fruits, mint, verbena rose, acacia flowers. The dosage built on daintiness and on an acid length give roundness and lightness to this Champagne. This vintage is in it’s prime but has plenty of life still and will be good for years to come.
