The history of Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut dates back to 1846. It was in response to the English preference for drier champagnes that Perrier-Jouët launched Cuvée K, recognized as the world's first champagne with a low sugar content, a category of champagne that is known today as "Brut". According to the House's records, Cuvée K had a sugar level of less than 5%, while the champagnes of the time contained about 40%. Thanks to the high quality of its grapes, Perrier-Jouët had very little added sugar. A philosophy that made the reputation of the House's brut champagnes, and that continues to guide it today. 

Color: beautiful golden hue punctuated with green reflections.

Nose: Delicate floral and fruity aromas: bouquet of white flowers, aromas of fresh fruit (lemon, peach) and yellow fruit (apricot, mango). 

Taste : The attack is frank. The wine has structure, balance and roundness, a light vinosity and a pleasant persistence. Notes of apple, pear and pineapple.

Finish: rich, generous and persistent.

The Terroir :
To elaborate Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut, Séverine Frerson selects about fifty different crus throughout the Champagne region. Each vintage is meticulously blended with a percentage of reserve wines to guarantee the style and quality of this cuvée year after year. The Chardonnays come mainly from the emblematic villages of Chouilly, Avize and Cramant on the Côte des Blancs. Their floral nuances are intensified by the structure of the Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims (to the north, Verzy and Verzenay, and to the south, Ambonnay). Finally, the Meunier of Dizy and Damery in the Marne Valley bring notes of orchard fruits.

Grape varieties :

  • 40 % Pinot Noir
  • 40 % Meunier
  • 20 % Chardonnay
