Champagne Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut NV

champagne perrier jouet

Perrier-Jouët is a medium-sized Champagne house with an annual production of around 3 million bottles a year, dating back to 1811. They have just under 180 hectares of their own vineyards, which is quite a high proportion. Bought by Mumm in the late 1950s, they are now part of the Pernod Ricard portfolio. I was impressed by this Grand Brut, which was better than I remember it to be.

Champagne Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut NV France
12% alcohol. 20% Chardonnay with the balance equal parts red grapes, with around 10% reserve wines. Taut, pure and lemony, with some finesse. Subtle hazelnut and toast notes with a bit of herbiness and nice lemony brightness on the finish. Some fine green apple notes too. 90/100
