Cuvée Caractère Extra Brut - Champagne Olivier Père & Fils


Extra Brut Champagne is becoming more and more fashionable today, but what does it mean? For any Champagne, each bottle is opened after fermentation to add a mixture of wine and sugar, defining what it will taste like. Extra Brut simply means there is no sugar at all, making a very pure, fresh and mineral Champagne. Ideal if you like light dry Champagne with thin, classy bubbles.
