A Delicate Champagne with Notes of White Flowers and Yellow Fruit
The Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut is a mix of reserve wines, perpetuated year after year with care by the Cellar Master to create a Champagne of great character. This blend contains 20% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 40% Pinot Meunier, seductive in its beautiful golden robe. The Grand Brut from the House of Perrier- Jouëtoffers a lovely aromatic finesse with impressions of subtlety and delicacy. One experiences notes of white flowers (orchard flowers, lime blossom and honeysuckle), fresh fruit (lemon and peach) and yellow fruit (apricot and mango) that give way to an agreeable evolution of butter, brioche and vanilla. In the mouth the attack is frank. The Champagne has structure, balance, roundness and a slight vinosity. A fresh wine that is both balanced and complex.

Wine Advocate-Parker : Charming and extroverted, the latest release of the NV Grand Brut bursts with expressive aromas of warm biscuits, honeyed citrus and orchard fruit, followed by a medium to full-bodied, open-knit palate with ripe acids, a frothy mousse and a fleshy core of fruit, concluding with a clean, uncomplicated finish. More biscuity complexity will emerge with bottle age.
