Champagne Huré Frères Invitation Brut NV

Champagne, FranceA close-knit family, two brothers sharing a common vision and then passing on their values to the next generation, all this and more makes up the story of Champagne Huré-Fréres: started just over 50 years ago and still very much a family business. Today Raoul Huré and his two sons, Francois and Pierre invite you to discover their maison at Ludes in the Montagne de Reims. This cuvée is forward and direct with ample green and red apple, lemon, white cherry, and a cushion of lees across the medium+ body, ringed with a chalky grip. Quite vinous, this is a great food pairing wine, especially with proteins or richer dishes. Terroirs : - Grapes from the Montagne de Reims, namely Ludes and Villedommange - Vitriat, namely Vavray Grand. To ensure year-on-year consistency, we safe-keep ‘library stock’, in order to retain the ‘principle of the Solera’. As this Champagne is considered our introductory Champagne, it is deemed an ‘invitation’, exuding freshness and conviviality for the senses.
