Product Info: A blend of fifty different Crus, Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut expresses the quality and diversity of the House winemaking tradition. Its assemblage creates a balance between the consistency of the Perrier-Jouët style and the effects of the climate of the year. With 12 to 20% of reserve wines added, Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut is dominated by the elegance and finesse of the Chardonnay (20%) from the best vineyards in the Côte des Blancs. The delicate structure is brought by the Pinot Noir (40%) primarily sourced from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne, but also from the best Crus in the Aube region such as Les Riceys. Pinot Meunier (40%) from the Vallée de la Marne brings harmony, fruit and roundness to the wine.
Color: A pale and sparkling yellow robe, suggestive of vivacity. Taste: The Perrier-Jouët 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. Ampleness and vivacity balance out in the mouth, developing into a flavour of round and vinous elegance. A fresh, balanced champagne with a long finish. A refined and balanced cuvée revealing the floral nuances of Chardonnay.

Brand/Product History: The ancestry of Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut can be traced back to 1846, when – in response to the preference of British connoisseurs for a drier taste – Maison Perrier-Jouët launched its historic Cuvée K, the world’s first lightly dosed champagne in the style today known as “brut”. According to the House cellar books, Cuvée K was dosed at a sugar level of less than 5% – daringly little for an era when champagnes regularly contained up to 40%. Maison Perrier-Jouët became renowned for its brut champagnes, which it was able to produce owing to the fact that its high-quality grapes required very little added sugar – a philosophy maintained to this day. Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut is the heir to this tradition, and the initiator of the famed Perrier-Jouët style.
