Perrier Jouët "Grand Brut" Champagne
This creamy wine has a distinct mature and toasty character to balance the crisp white fruits and lively acidity. It is on the sweeter end of Brut, which adds richness to this attractive nonvintage.
Smoky and balanced, this offers a subnote of salted butter to the hints of baked peach, chamomile and anise, with a moderate, creamy finish. Drink now.
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. This is Lot L2070809871, disgorged November 17, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Bright yellow-gold. Lemon zest, quinine and herbs on the nose and palate. Dry and a bit edgy, with good clarity and back-end lift. Finishes on a zesty citrus note, with good clarity and bite.
