$219.00

- 100% Grand Cru Chardonnay.

- Sustainable and organic approach to the vineyard and winemaking.

- Great with fresh seafood or cured ham and cheese. 

Light yellow in colour with hints of silver, fine bubbles and a persistent ring of foam. Aromas of brioche and chalk, opening up to sweet grapefruit and apple on the nose. Fresh and generous on the palate. See notes of fruity, succulent, with a delicious lemon-flavoured acidity and a chalky, elegant and creamy minerality. Dosage: 3 to 5g/litre.

Crisp and expressive, L'Extravertie reflects Champagne Pertois-Lebrun knowledge and appreciation of the Chardonnay grape. Produced in Grand Cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs region, the House practices sustainable viticulture. Synthetic products and harmful pesticides are banned, instead organic fertilizers, aromatherapy and biodynamic principles are encouraged.

 

A family-owned estate in the Grand Cru region of Côte des Blancs, brothers Clément and Antoine are the 5th generation of winemakers in the Pertois-Lebrun family. After pursuing separate career paths, the brothers felt it was their responsibility to come back to Champagne and take over the family business.

“Understanding and respect as we work the vineyard, sincerity and authenticity as we create the wine”. These values are the foundation of Pertois-Lebrun. The brothers believe in preserving the naturality and individuality of their 44 Chardonnay plots through biodynamic and organic vinification practices and low-intervention winemaking methods. The House has been certified as High Environmental Quality and Sustainable Winegrowing in Champagne since 2019. Through these efforts the true nature of the terroir is allowed to express itself and the soul of each champagne is revealed.

Enjoy as an aperitif and pair with delicate finger foods, such as prawns, oysters, Italian cured ham or fruity cheese.

In the cellar, winemakers practice malolactic fermentation and age each bottle on fine lees for ten months in stainless steel vats and oak barrels. Freshness, elegance and maturity are reached after four years of cellar ageing.
