Since 1811 the Perrier Jouët Champagne house has cultivated 65 hectares of one of the best Grand Cru classed (99.2%) vineyards, with a steady and unmoving hand.
The Champagne is Chardonnay driven which gives it its spectacular floral notes. The Pinot Noir is lighter from yield of the terroir and the Pinot Meonier lend the fruity notes.
The Perrier Jouët Grand Brut has a striking freshness and vivacity of floral fragrances on the nose, leading the way to hints of vanilla and butter on the palate. It is a round and elegant Champagne that thrives when mingling with guests as a pre drink or to accompany an amuse bouche.
Perrier Jouët Champagne has always been connected and associated with art and design - sometimes minimalistic and contemporary which you can see in their Belle Époque Vintage Champagne. Hand painted floral bottles and glasses that changes through the different vintages, but always with floral motifs. The Champagne itself is a wonderful combination of elegance and supple flavours that hits you layer upon layer.
The 2007 Belle Époque has vibrant bubbles and a radiant clarity, the nose gives you a hint of honey suckle and on the palate you feel that again. Then next layer arrives with bergamot and lemon peel. It is still wonderfully refined in its effortless freshness. Was there a hint of almond at the end?
Both of these Champagnes and more are available at the Orangery’s Perrier Jouët Champagne dinner on Friday 18th November 2016. Find out more here>>
