Champagne Lilbert Pere-Fils Description

Perle is Lilbert’s rarest and most sought-after wine, this also comes from all three communes, and is sourced from the best old vines. It is bottled with a lower pressure than the non-vintage classic, making it particularly transparent and mineral.

"Lilbert makes classic Côte des Blancs champagnes of great purity, finesse and expression. The only problem with these wines is finding them, as the tiny production is eagerly snapped up upon release by a near-cult following of clientele around the world." – Peter Liem,

Lilbert owns 3.5 hectare of vines- all Grand Cru, and all Chardonnay, with an average vine age of 45 years- in the Côte des Blancs. 60% of their vines are in Cramant, 30% in Chouilly and 10% in Oiry. These are three of the six Grand Cru villages in the Côte des Blancs. It is rare that any one house owns exclusively Grand Cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs; Bertrand calls himself "very lucky" to be able to make wines from such prestigious vineyards. All of the parcels are vinified separately until two weeks before bottling. The NV represents 80% of the production and is aged in the cellar for two years. Dosage is normally around 7g/L, since Bertrand is going for acidity in his wines and not ripeness. (He does not perform batonnage because it makes the wines too heavy.) The winery is tiny and the latest investment is a 4,000kg pneumatic press and a disgorgement machine. Each bottle is still riddled by hand. The end result is a true connoisseurs champagne.

Burghound: 94 Points

"This gorgeous effort begins with a notably restrained nose that only reluctantly offers up shy scents of lemon rind, green apple and cool pear. The refreshing and equally cool flavors are strikingly refined and energetic with an exceptionally fine bead to the supporting mousse, all wrapped in wonderfully authoritative, balanced and focused finish that lasts and lasts. This understated and ultra-pure effort is flat out terrific combining power and finesse. This could easily be enjoyed now but a few more years of bottle age will only add to the depth."

Wine Spectator: 92 Points

"A vibrant Champagne, offering a satiny mousse that's fine and plush as it caresses the palate and carries delicate flavors of ripe Bartlett pear, crystallized honey, lemon curd and smoked almond. A fine chinalike frame of acidity creates a mouthwatering impression on minerally finish. Disgorged Summer 2020. Drink now through 2024. 250 cases made, 50 cases imported. "
