Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, award-winning musician, entrepreneur, actor, and producer, is the owner of Le Chemin du Roi (‘The Kings Path’). It is an eye-catching bottle that commands attention, and the Champagne does not disappoint! This Brut is 60% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir, and 20% Pinot Meunier.  Aging is over four years on lees in the bottle. 

Nose: Delicate notes of stone fruit and minerality.
Palate: Persistent and fine bubbles with white stone fruit, brioche, a touch of citrus, minerality, and crisp acidity. Quite elegant!
Alcohol: 12.5%
SRP: $164.99
