An off-dry, medium-bodied Champagne, with a full fruity palate. A straw yellow colouring, its nose is dominated by seeded white fruits which blend with notes of freshly baked bread.
The high proportion of Pinot grapes is expressed in a palate of ripe apple and pear aromas which climax in a delightfully fresh finish.
Mercier Brut is a traditional assemblage of wine from the late harvest and reserve wines from previous years.
Maison Mercier, founded in 1858 by Eugene Mercier at the tender age of twenty, is one of the great champagne names. Thanks to the drive of its visionary founder, Champagne Mercier has become a firm French favourite. Eugene Mercier strove against the odds to purvey champagne of the highest quality to a wide public. Eugene Mercier had a stock answer for inevitable sceptics: "You can laugh, but the day will come when rivers of champagne will flow through Epernay". Some ten years later Eugene was proved right.
The founder's spirit still prevails. The fresh, fruity, intense and spontaneous Mercier vintages fashioned by Christophe Bonnefond, Chef de Cave for the House, reflect this authentic, warm-hearted spirit.
Enjoyed in France and throughout the world during the most enjoyable of occasions, formal and informal, Mercier always brings something extra to the party. An excellent champagne with a generous and warm personality. Mercier: the champagne of great times.
The Brut cuvee is the reference for the House style, reflecting the vivacity, fresh aromas and intense fruity notes which are the Mercier trademarks.
The conviviality of Mercier Brut makes it a perfect aperitif but it also goes well with a full meal such as hot oyster gratin, bream with lime or some fromage frais with herbs.
