Schorpion

Cuvée Houben NV

€29,00

Spiced Apple & Pear

Made in the traditional method like champagne but with different grapes, this is a blend of almost every grape at Schorpion, including Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Gris. Every year the blend changes a little. This vintage was bottled in 2019. It has flavors of green apple, lemon, toast, and buttery spices, and a long finish laced with pear and lime. 

Brothers Wilfried and Robrecht Schorpion put their heart and soul into making exceptional sparkling wines in Belgium. After building their own traditional champagne press by hand, they've won numerous awards in Belgium. Learn more
