A new member of the Pierre Jourdan range, but it is not a ‘Methode Classique’ sparkling wine. Tranquille is a gentle wine without the lively bubbles that made Pierre Jourdan famous, however, the blend is nearly the same. It is an uncertified wine, therefore no vintage year is indicated. The emphasis of Tranquille being a ‘still Champagne’ type wine relates to the production process, whereby the juice is recovered from whole bunches of grapes that have not been crushed, which excludes the tannins out of the wine structure, creating the fine elegance.
Personal Food pairing:
Although Tranquille translates as ‘quiet’, the lively flavours ideally complement oysters, kingklip, sole, chicken and salad dishes. It is a delicious wine for enjoyment on its own.
