The Perrier-Jouët Champagne House was founded in 1811 by Pierre Perrier and his wife, Adèle Jouët. Produced from exceptional terroirs in Champagne (Ay, Mailly-Champagne, Avize and Cramant), the house’s cuvées are renowned for their unique style, mixing aromatic richness, sophistication and subtlety. Perrier-Jouët became Queen Victoria’s official champagne in 1861, then that of the French Imperial Court.
Owned by the Champagne company, GH Mumm, since 1959, the Perrier-Jouët House particularly stands out through the iconic bottle of its prestigious cuvée "Belle Époque", devised by Émile Gallé in 1969.
This Blanc de Blancs by Perrier-Jouët, who created its first 100% Chardonnay cuvées in the 1920s, perpetuates the house’s innovative spirit. Derived from the best terroirs in Champagne and produced with a low quantity of reserve wines, this cuvée enjoys 3 years of ageing on lees. With a surprising freshness and vitality, this cuvée is the perfect expression of the style of the Pierre-Jouët Champagne House.
Winemaking and ageing
Manually harvested, the grapes undergo alcoholic fermentation in thermoregulated, stainless steel vats, followed by malolactic fermentation. This cuvée, which dosage is 8g/litre, enjoys an ageing process that lasts for greater than twice the appellation criteria.
The Blanc de Blancs by Perrier-Jouët is 100% Chardonnay.
The wine is a beautiful, radiant golden colour, adorned with subtle green reflections.
The nose mixes floral fragrances (elderberry, acacia, honeysuckle) and notes of citrus with a beautiful liveliness.
The lively and refreshing palate seduces with its length, minerality, intensity and energy.
Food and wine pairings
Ideal as an aperitif, this Blanc de Blancs by Perrier-Jouët goes perfectly with fish (striped bass), a dish accompanied by snow peas or even a plum-based dessert.
