$39.99 PERRIER-JOUËT GRAND BRUT
(WS89/RP87 $51.99 reg.)
"A crowd-pleaser, open-knit and lightly juicy, with a lively, frothy bead. Mixes white cherry, ripe apricot, pickled ginger and mineral notes, with a fresh, spiced finish." Wine Spectator, October 2012
A refined and subtle blend of charm and elegance. The multiple facets of each wine reveal a broad aromatic palette and a subtle persistence. Floral & intricate: the hallmark of wines from the House of Perrier-Jouët.
An exceptional vineyard, including the best plots on the Côte des Blanc, giving the chardonnays that are predominant in the House's champagnes all the richness of their floral aroma. A style passed down through the years, in the secrecy of the House Cellars by the Cellar Master, expert in their craftsmanship.
A pale and sparkling yellow robe, suggestive of vivacity.
NOSE: The Grand Brut is delicate, elegant and balanced. The striking freshness and vivacity of the floral and fruity fragrances (yellow fruits and fresh fruits) take root, before giving way to subtle notes of vanilla and butter, lending the wine a fruity and consistent character.
The notes of cherry plum, lemon and bergamot orange emerge first, then make way for the flowers of fruit trees, such as lime and honeysuckle. These are followed by notes of butter, madeleine cakes and vanilla sugar. Lingering notes of grapefruit, white peaches, green pears, apple trees and green hazelnuts round off the taste.
Ampleness and vivacity balance out in the mouth, developing into a flavor of round and vinous elegance.
