Champagne Pierre Trichet – L’Authentique – Bronze Fruity & Floral

28th December 2017


Congratulations to Champagne Pierre Trichet with their L’Authentique which received a bronze 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 Fruity & Floral: “A wine that is likely to show fruity flavours such as apples to red berry fruits and mixed with aromas of varied common flower petals such as rose and acacia.

Appearance: yellow with distinct flecks of amber, lively effervescence and an abundant mousse.

Nose: yellow fruit and citrus fruit plus a hint of Nose hazelnuts and a pleasant suggestion of leafy undergrowth.

Palate: a world of menthol and spices with even a Palate touch of pepper. A round, fresh and well-balanced wine.

Food matching suggestions:
Harmonies: white fish, trout or pike. White meat.
Contrasts: white chocolate mousse, sweet and sour dishes.

I am lucky in that I have visited this winery and met with the current owner and winemaker, Pierre Trichet, and both experienced his wines and importantly his deep passion for winemaking and continuing his fine family traditions. Each wine from his range will give you a crisp and refreshing Champagne taste.” Christopher Walkey
