Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut
The Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut is delicate, elegant, and balanced. The striking freshness and vivacity of the floral and fruity fragrances (yellow fruits and fresh fruits) take root, before giving way to subtle notes of vanilla and butter, lending the wine a fruity and consistent character.
The notes of cherry plum, lemon, and bergamot orange emerge first, then make way for the flowers of fruit trees, such as lime and honeysuckle. These are followed by notes of butter, madeleine cakes, and vanilla sugar. Lingering notes of grapefruit, white peaches, green pears, apple trees, and green hazelnuts round off the taste.
Perrier-Jouet 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.
|Wine Spectator: 90|
|Meyer lemon peel, poached apricot and pastry cream notes are tightly meshed with a minerally underpinning and racy acidity in this vivacious Champagne. Creamy finish.|
|Wine Enthusiast: 90|
|With crisp acidity and layers of apple and citrus fruits, this attractive wine still has some of the higher dosage typical of this house. Together the fruits and the soft texture have produced a wine that is ready to drink.|
