Origin France, Champagne, Bouzy
Brand Jean Vesselle
Alcohol/vol 12%
The "eye of the partridge" is Vesselle's very special blanc de noirs, a 100% Pinot Noir cuvée. Consider the come-hither scent of a strawberry tart cooling in a windowsill. Fresh, yeasty biscuits and plump cherries. Puffs of gunflint and smoke. All this is wrapped into a bold Bouzy Pinot Noir that with the talents of Vesselle has been transformed into a graceful temptress.

The salmon-colored non-vintage Brut Oeil de Perdrix (this means "partridge's eye" in reference to the wine's color, an expression that many say originates in Bouzy) exhibits lively red currant and strawberry aromas as well as flavors. Produced from 100% Pinot Noir (all of it from Bouzy), it is a well-ripened, red fruit-flavored offering whose personality lingers in its supple finish. Drink it over the next 5 years.
