Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut, Champagne, France, Champagne
In 1811 Pierre-Nicolas Perrier married Adèle Jouët, thus marking the genesis of the House of Perrier-Jouët.
Hervé Deschamps became the 7th Perrier-Jouët Cellar Master in 1993. The ten previous years he spent at his predecessor's side who helped him master the subtleties of the house style and its unique floral tonality. As a guardian of this knowledge, he has since perpetuated and cultivated this precious heritage; fashioning, sculpting and pruning each of the vines that comprise his creations during their composition, with craftsmanlike skill.
The Grand Brut is a perfect introduction to the floral, stylish and diamond-cut style of the House of Perrier-Jouët. Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut, the first Brut champagne was created by Perrier-Jouët, in a search for perfection and quality in 1856.
For the Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut, the composition is 40% based on the vinosity and the structure of the pinot noir from the grands crus and premiers crus of the Mailly, Verzy, Aÿ and Rilly-la Montagne terroirs. Noble and subtle, these pinot noirs bring out the fruitiness of the charming and generous meuniers of the Dizy, Damery, Venteuil or Vincelles and Vinay terroirs (40% of the composition).
Finally, the chardonnays of the grand crus of Cramant, Avize, Le Mesnil and Chouilly, which make up 20% of the composition, lend an added touch of freshness and minerality. To attain the perfection demanded by Perrier-Jouët, the bottles are kept for three years in the House's chalk cellars, located under the Avenue de Champagne (Epernay), the historic heart of the label of origin.
Dosage: 10g/l - 12 to 14% of the reserve wines (wines from two or three previous years).
