Region, Champagne, France
Tasting Notes, A blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, Brut Mercier, with its straw yellow colour has a bouquet with predominantly white pip fruits, which combine with hints of fresh bread. The high proportion of Pinot grapes comes out on the palate through aromas of ripe apples and pears developing into a pleasantly fresh finish.
Food and association, The conviviality of the Mercier Brut makes it ideal as an aperitif, but it can also be served throughout the meal, with, for example, cooked oysters au gratin, sea bream with lime or fromage frais with herbs.
