Wine Region: Champagne - France
Grape: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier
Tasting notes : The Grand Brut offers 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.
About the Winery :
Perrier-Jouet is a Champagne House founded in 1811 by Pierre Perrier and his wife Adele Jouet. Over several decades, with discernment, and 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.
