1959 Mercier Special Reserve de L’Empereur Brut Champagne


A scarce special edition 1959 boxed example of the ‘Reserve de L’Empereur Brut Champagne’ by the Mercier company.

The 75cl bottle is not the standard Champagne shape, but a reproduction of the 1858 bottle. It is set in its fitted box, with a glass wine bottle stopper. These Champagne bottles are amongst the most exclusive and expensive on the market. The older they are, generally the more valuable. The condition is very good and the seal of the bottle has not been compromised.

Champagne is sparkling wine from the Champagne region of northern France. Brut translates roughly as "raw", and in this sense it indicates a wine sold without a significant addition of sweetness. It is made from the classic Champagne Blend (typically Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) but in theory can also include the four lesser-known Champagne varieties: Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Petit Meslier and Arbane.
