Perrier Jouët "Grand Brut" Champagne
Attractive flinty grapefruit and lemon citrus notes on the nose as well as some caramelized biscuity aromas, strawberries, wild flowers and fresh-baked bread. The palate's full and bold with dosage driving it along. Ripe red apple and stone fruit flavors; creamy, rich and simple finish.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Perrier-Jouet’s NV Grand Brut is a very pleasant, mid-weight Champagne that shows lovely complexity. Suggestions of smoke, roasted nuts and light honey add character to a generous core of ripe yellow fruit. The wine offers excellent overall balance and a poised finish. (AG)
Light yellow-gold. Zesty citrus and orchard fruits on the mineral-accented nose, with a hint of white flowers coming up with aeration. Lively and focused on the palate, offering slightly tart lemon and green apple flavors and a hint of candied ginger. Closes taut and spicy, with good cut and length. (JR)
Wine & Spirits
Creamy and round, this is on the soft side of Brut. The sweetness of the dosage makes it easy to sip at a celebration.
This is soft, creamy and accessible. With its attractive citrus acidity balanced by a generous dosage, it emphasizes white fruits, crisp acidity and a light, lively aftertaste. (RV)
Lively and mouthwatering, with flavors of black currant, graphite, candied lemon zest and smoky mineral, supported by a creamy mousse. A balanced crowd-pleaser. (AN)
