Description

The Cuvée du Père Houdart is an exceedingly rare champagne, crafted from an exceptional blend of vintages from 1971, 1975, 1976, 1982, 1984 and wines from the excellent 2011 harvest.

This extraordinary cuvee is a masterful interpretation of the history of this champagne house.

The name of this cuvee is derived from the grandfather of José Michel, the founder of the House, whose nickname was Père Houdart in the village of Moussy.

It is a blend of 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay vinified in stainless steel vats and in oak barrels. It is dosed as an Extra Brut at 4g/l in order to leave place for the free expression of its aromas.

The Cuvée du Père Houdart is bright gold with fine, slowly ascending bubbles.

The nose is complex, with dried fruits and yellow fleshed fruits with a remarkable freshness of palate in spite of the age of the vintages.

In the mouth it is creamy and complex with aromas of yellow fleshed fruits and grilled hazelnuts with toasted notes.
