Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut is a champagne today belonging to the category of great classics. Pleasant, elegant, distinct and delicate, it is one of the jewels of the House Perrier Jouët, the first to process a brut champagne in 1854.
Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut is the result of a quality blend: the elegance and finesse of the Chardonnay meet the structure and delicacy of the Pinot Noir, and then be harmonized by the fruity roundness of the Pinot Meunier.
Hervé Deschamps, chef de caves, said that the Cuvée Grand Brut is the spokesperson for the Perrier-Jouët style. The cellar master, drawing on the creative tradition of the Maison, composes each wine differently according to his intuitions, making each cuvée a unique work of art. The Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut , however, has the onerous task of continuing to reflect the quest for perfection and quality of the Maison Perrier-Jouët.
