The wine shows lovely aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, spice and yeast.
This elegant, complex, crisp and balanced wine features persistent mouthfeel as well as lingering flavors of fresh apples and lemons.
The grapes for the Grand Brut are carefully sourced from 35 - 40 crus in the heart of the Champagne region. The wine is composed of 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier, 20% Chardonnay and 10% to 20% reserve wine. 20% of the grapes used in the Grand Brut originate from the esteemed Cramant region, and the balance are supplied by some of the best producers in the region, with whom Perrier-Jouet has developed special relationships spanning many generations.
The bottles are aged in the house's historic champenois aging cellars, which are tunneled directly into the chalky soil of Champagne. The Champagne caves run 50 feet deep and remain at a constant temperature of 52°F.
The wine is aged in modern, stainless steel tanks which allow for perfect temperature control. Once all the base wines are fermented and racked, Chef de Caves Herve Deschamps meticulously tastes from over 300 wines to choose the most outstanding lots. In addition to grapes from the current vintage, between 10% to 20% of reserve wines from previous vintages are blended into the final cuvee.
Perfect for moments of inspiration, art and beauty. Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut can be matched with dishes such as carpaccio of fish or white meats. Its lively vivacity works well with crisp vegetables and tofu.
