Mercier Blanc de Noirs, an unconventional champagne cuvée

The “anticonformist” element is the very essence of Mercier, as Eugène Mercier, who founded the
company 1858, liked to say. Since 2013, the young French graphic artist David Lanaspa has been
lending his talent to the brand to illustrate informal Mercier moments with authenticity.
David Lanaspa is behind the illustration for Mercier’s Blanc de Noirs cuvée, made exclusively from red grapes.
Mercier Blanc de Noirs joins the range of Mercier Brut, Brut Rosé, Demi-sec and Brut Réserve
champagnes while diverging from the powerful and heady Blanc de Noirs wines of Champagne.

grapefruit, yellow plums, white peaches and pineapple.
The floral and fruity aromas of rose and lychee complete the green freshness of leafstalks and red
On the palate, the structure is original, surprising and delicate, more tonic than wine-like. It leaves the
palate fresh, refreshed by the fruity notes with a light touch of licorice. The foam becomes creamy, the
taste is delicious, ample, without being excessive, and the finish is energetic and tensioned.
