WINE OF THE WEEK: Joseph Perrier Cuvée Royale Brut Champagne, France

£34/£27, Tanners Wines


I wasn't planning to do Champagne this week, but now is the time to stock up on this Joseph Perrier. The current tempting offer price of £27 when you buy two or more ends in 10 days' time on 28 October. I hadn't tasted Cuvée Royale for a while and was hugely impressed. It's vivacious and elegant yet generous, too, and beautifully balanced, with a floral note on the nose and lemon curd and toast on the palate. It's a more or less equal blend of the three varieties – 35% for Chardonnnay and Pinot Noir and 30% Meunier – with around 20% reserve wines and it was aged in the cellars for three years. Spot on. 12%
