Tasting notes: Pale gold with hints of green, Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs awakens the senses with enticing aromas of hedgerow flowers – elderberry, acacia and honeysuckle – and tangy citrus. On the palate, its mineral freshness lingers into a surprisingly smooth, mellow finish, which adds to the charm of this delightfully lively, luminous champagne.

Perrier-Jouet is a Champagne House founded in 1811 by Pierre Perrier and his wife Adele Jouet. Over several decades, with discernment, and the exceptional vineyard was established on the Champagne best terroirs of Ay, Mailly-Champagne, Avize and Cramant. The excellence of raw materials has always been paramount, with particular attention paid to terroirs of chardonnays that give this house's wines the desired character: a floral blend, refined and subtle. Perrier-Jouet is since 1861the Champagne appointed by Queen Victoria, then by the French Imperial court. In 1959, GH Mumm, a Champagne Company acquired the Maison Perrier-Jouet. The prestige Cuvee "Belle Epoque" and its bottle designed by Emile Galle was launched in 1969 and marks a historic turning point for the brand.
