Black pearls are extremely rare and beautiful. Snap. So is this.
Black pearls are extremely rare and beautiful. Snap: so is the rose gold-coloured Soutiran Perle Noire. Fig, prune, pineapple, sea salt and cream: an opulent pleasure cruise on a luxury liner. “Perle noire” is also almost as delicious to say out loud as it to drink. Almost.
Based in Ambonnay, one of the 17 grand cru villages in Champagne. Valérie and Patrick Renaux are the third generation that began in the Montagne de Riems with Val's grandfather, Gérard Soutiran. Gerard was an orphan raised by a viticulturist who then took over his caretaker's vineyard after a career in the Army. Would you watch that movie? We’d watch that movie.
