Perrier Jouët "Grand Brut" Champagne

SKU #100018 James Suckling

 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.  (7/2015)

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)  (12/2009)

Vinous

 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)  (1/2015)

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.  (12/2012)

Wine Enthusiast

 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)  (12/2016)

Wine Spectator

 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)  (10/2016)

Just plain excellent every time. This is my go-to $30ish NV Champagne, because it pairs well with so many foods and whoever I serve it to loves it too.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
