"Louis Aristide Réserve Perpétuelle" is an Extra Brut Champagne that illustrates the value of the work of a talented vigneron. Rémy Massin runs an estate of 22 hectares and produces Champagnes of great personality, marked by an intense and elegant character. The Pinot Noir grapes come from a selection of old vines, which produce a few bunches per plant of excellent quality. After soft pressing, the must is vinified in white. After several months of ageing and after malolactic fermentation, the blend is created, which in addition to the vins clairs of the vintage includes reserve wines from the previous 18 vintages, giving the cuvée an extraordinary complexity and depth of flavour. The second fermentation takes place in the bottle according to the Champenoise Method, with a resting period of at least 6 years on the lattes before dégorgement.
