Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut is a blend of 50 different crus, expressing the quality and diversity of the House’s 200 year-old winemaking tradition. With 12 to 20% reserve wines added, the assemblage is dominated by the elegance and finesse of the Chardonnays from the best vineyards in the Côte des Blancs.
Pinot Noirs sourced primarily from the Montagne de Reims and the Marne Valley give the wine its structure whilst the Pinot Meuniers in the blend bring harmony, fruit and roundness to the blend.
The Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut is delicate, elegant and balanced. The striking freshness and vivacity of the floral and fruity fragrances (yellow fruits and fresh fruits) take root, before giving way to subtle notes of vanilla and butter, lending the wine a fruity and consistent character.
The notes of cherry plum, lemon and bergamot orange emerge first, then make way for the flowers of fruit trees, such as lime and honeysuckle. These are followed by notes of butter, madeleine cakes and vanilla sugar. Lingering notes of grapefruit, white peaches, green pears, apple trees and green hazelnuts round off the taste.
Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut is a fresh, balanced champagne with a long finish. Its flavours are best revealed between 7 and 9°.
