Perrier-Jouët was founded in 1811 in Epernay by Pierre-Nicolas-Marie Perrier and his wife, Adele Jouët. One of the most prestigious houses in Champagne, the firm was shipping wine to Great Britain by 1813 and to the United States by 1837. Perrier-Jouët owns 266 acres of vineyards in Champagne, with an average rating of 95%, and is known worldwide for its consistency of style.
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.
Rich and soft as well as vivacious, with lively acidity in good balance. Lovely harmony and length. Huon Hooke
Grand in every sense, this is a convincingly powerful and assertive non-vintage Champagne that offers a wealth of fresh and zesty citrus and stone fruit aromas; the autolysis is fresh, adding bread and pastry notes, gentle spice too. The palate has power and poise, with creamy, fine texture, bright acidity and smooth, ripe stone fruit and citrus flavour ahead of a surge of pinot-like power to close. Nick Stock
Lively and mouthwatering, with flavors of black currant, graphite, candied lemon zest and smoky mineral, supported by a creamy mousse. Wine Spectator
Uber clean, gingerbread spice, amazing depth. Andrew Caillard MW
