A harmonious wine, elegant, with a delicate complexity.

Tasting Notes

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.

Winemaking Information

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.

Serving Suggestion

Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut can be matched with dishes such as carpaccio of fish or white meats. Its lively vivacity works well with crisp vegetables and tofu.

Wine Spectator

90 points || Meyer lemon peel, poached apricot and pastry cream notes are tightly meshed with a minerally underpinning and racy acidity in this vivacious Champagne. Creamy finish.

Wine Enthusiast

90 points || With crisp acidity and layers of apple and citrus fruits, this attractive wine still has some of the higher dosage typical of this house. Together the fruits and the soft texture have produced a wine that is ready to drink.

James Suckling

91 points || This offers fresh and attractive fruit aromas with a gently flinty, white-peach and white-flower fragrance on offer. The palate has an attractive, fresh and crisp feel with creamy, crispy texture at the finish. Good NV. Drink now.
