Imagine the vibrant scent of a Sicilian lemon orchard. Add some Kaffir lime leaves and a pinch of mixed sweet spices. A hot cross bun gently toasts in the background. Combine with a fabulous lick of refreshing salinity and a caressing texture. Hyménée, meaning ‘perfect marriage’, represents the perfect union of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that has produced this mysterious and captivating Champagne.


Awarded 91+ by Wine Advocate - July 2016:

“Blending 50/50 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir including 40% reserve wines, the NV Cuvée Hyménée Brut is the "Grande Cuvée" of Tendi & Lombardi. The wine (which undergoes malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks) spends at least four years on the lees, and after disgorgement, another year in the cave. The most recent Hyménée was bottled in April 2010 and disgorged in November 2014. The wine displays a very clear, deep, rich, precise and elegant bouquet with mineral flavors and aromas of herbs, almonds, yellow fruits and brioche. This Champagne is full-bodied and round, yet pure, straight, fresh and highly finesse-full on the palate. This delicate cuvée has a tender, stimulating grip and refined fruit in the complex and well-structured, persistent mineral finish. This is excellent." Robert Parker

Awarded 91 by Stephen Tanzer - November 2012:

"50/50 blend of chardonnay and pinot noir, aged for 48 months before disgorgement.  Pale yellow.  Lemon pith and quince on the high-pitched, spice-accented nose.  Dry and precise, offering sappy orchard fruit flavors and deeper peach and honey nuances that gain strength with air.  Finishes with very good energy and cling, leaving a floral note behind."

Late delivery does not constitute a breach of contract by the seller and no claim can be made by, or on behalf of, the buyer, whatever the cause. Perfect Cellar Ltd cannot be held responsible if a delivery is not possible due to an incorrect address. It is the responsibility of the recipient to verify the contents of the delivery and inform Perfect Cellar Ltd of any concerns by means of letter or telephone within 24 hours of receiving the package.

As indicated in our Quality Promise we will happily refund or exchange any faulty or corked bottles, or wines you don’t like. All we ask is the bottles in question are returned to us at least half full for verification purposes. If a bottle is broken on delivery we will also replace or refund it but we do require photographic evidence of the breakage. Equally we can arrange for the bottles to be collected the next time you receive a delivery from us.

Should we be unable to fulfill any part, or all of an order, Perfect Cellar Ltd will suggest comparable substitutions. You are free to refuse these suggestions and are eligible for a full refund of relevant parts of the order.

In all instances, Perfect Cellar Ltd must be informed of any claim within 24 hours of receipt of delivery by letter or telephone. All refunds will be issued after we have received and approved the faulty items and the amount will be re-credited to your account within 30 days. The amount refunded will be equal to the full amount paid for the relevant products at the time of purchase and must be made by the same payment method as the original sale.

If you choose to cancel your contract of sale with Perfect Cellar Ltd you may do so within seven working days of receipt of the goods. If the goods have already been dispatched they must be returned to us unopened and undamaged, and Perfect Cellar Ltd will not be liable for any costs associated with the original or return delivery.

No refund can be given when a case has left bond as the value will be affected. Individual bottles of Fine Wine will be considered for refund on a case-by-case basis.

We advise contacting our Customers Services team before making any claim to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
