Box Perla Nera
Made exclusively from Pinot Noir grapes, this unique Grand Cru champagne reveals a palate that expresses all the purity of this varietal. Fresh yet full of strength, it’s equally enjoyable with cocktails as with a three course meal. With its golden colour and deep, rich flavours, this exceptional wine is a worthy ambassador for the House of Marc : its black pearl.
"Black pearl", a pure Grand Cru Pinot Noir, has made its mark on wine judges everywhere. They’ve been full of praise, not just for the intense, lively nose bursting with floral notes, citrus and white fruit, but for the persistent fruitiness on the palate as well. A very well-balanced blanc de noirs whose remarkable freshness makes it ideal as an aperitif.
