Valentine’s Day champagne: Marie Léopold brut by Michel Loriot
Feb 02, 2014 | Parisian Eye
Champagne Michel Loriot has a very unique specificity: each bottle is fermented during two months with the sound of Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony, before Mozart, Brahms, Mahler, and Vivaldi also take part in the magic of the high quality fermentation. The notes arising from these melodies bring vibrations that reach the wine, the yields and the proteins of which it is composed. They act on its structure and help it to express all its perfumes and aromas during its ageing.
Currently managed by the 10th generation of wine growers of the family, the Michel Loriot house produces various ranges, among them Marie Léopold: a vintage champagne that embodies the link between the generations of the family, from Léopold (who founded the company as “Loriot” in the end of the 19th century) to Marie, daughter of the current owner.
Harvested in 2008 and 2009, made of 70% Meunier and 30% Chardonnay, it is perfect with foie gras and chocolate… To celebrate Valentine’s Day!
