Overview

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 desBlancs. 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.

Winery Tasting Notes

Appearance - A pale and sparkling yellow robe, suggestive of vivacity.

Nose - The Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut is delicate, elegant and balanced. The striking freshness andvivacity 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.

Palate - Ampleness and vivacity balance out in the mouth, developing into a flavour of round andvinous elegance. A fresh, balanced champagne with a long finish. Its flavours are best revealed between 7 and 9°.

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.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

It was in 1811 that Pierre-Nicolas Perrier married Adèle Jouët, thus marking the genesis of the House of Perrier-Jouët. Characterised from the outset by its uncompromising standards, the House was a pioneer in the field of traceability and the fight against counterfeiting.

After the fashion of the great Champagne Houses, Perrier-Jouët was the first to display the year of the vintage on its bottles. And if, as sometimes happens, the harvests do not meet its exacting quality standards, the House opts for quality and abandons production. No compromise is brooked. A number of wines from remarkable years have been selected and consigned to the silence of the cellars.

And while each of these vintages has a distinctive character all of its own, they all without exception illustrate the excellence of the Perrier-Jouët vineyards. It is there, in Eden, that our oldest Champagne vintage is conserved, the Perrier-Jouët 1825. 

This quest for perfection guarantees Perrier-Jouët its rightful place at the most prestigious tables. Not to mention the royal courts of Napoleon III or Queen Victoria. Since Princess Grace of Monaco declared the bottle with the iconic anemone to be her favourite champagne, Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque has accompanied the Rose Ball for many years.
