Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut Champagne – Review

This is “POP or FLOP”, where we taste test sparkling wines so you don’t have to! This week we’re sipping Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut Champagne! Is this a bottle of bubbles you should POP? 💁 Or is it a FLOP? 🙅 Let’s see…

 

 

The Grand Brut Champagne is one of the signature wines of Épernay’s Perrier-Jouët and you may recognize it from its Art Nouveau label. Don’t know much about Art Nouveau? Nouveau problem! This style of art was inspired by organic forms, like the curved lines of flowers, and was popularized in Paris in the late 1800’s. The floral motif, indicating both delicacy and craftsmanship, is part of the Perrier-Jouët philosophy! Sourced from over 40 crus in the heart of the Champagne, including the prized vineyards of Côte des Blancs, the Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut Champagne has quite the “blooming” reputation (see what we did there? 😚). And so, how does this wine stack up? Read on to find out!

Flavour

  • An inviting and elegant wine that is well balanced and has a lively mouthfeel. Medium body and acidity. With notes of yellow apple, sweet honey, citrus and warm brioche, and a lingering finish of sun-ripened lemon and a touch of grapefruit.

Food Pairing

  • Like many a Champagne, the Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut Champagne is great as an aperitif since it’s crisp and refreshing! Since this wine is so lively, it also pairs very well with food, including grilled vegetables, braised chicken with lemon and thyme and desserts, like lemon custard tarts 😍

The Verdict?

  • It’s a POP! We love an inviting, lively and aromatic champagne and the Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut Champagne sure fits the bill! The such lovely aromatics and an interesting, but approachable palate, this which makes it a delicious aperitif for one, or maybe more glasses (shared with friends or squirrelled away for yourself, because it’s so lovely!). 😋
