Connoisseurs judge a champagne house by the quality of its non vintage brut wine . It is on its brut, created in the mid-19th century, that Perrier-Jouët has built its reputation.

This champagne is a blend of the best first growths from the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne and the

Great balance and a lingering finish mark this zesty, full-flavored brut as something special. Rich in fruit flavor, crisp in balance, with an underlying tangy quality that begs for another sip.

Reviews:

"Smooth, ripe and creamy, this complex and inviting wine offers elegant pear, spice, vanilla and earth notes that are focused and lively. The long, lingering finish echoes fig and toast notes. Drink now. 283,000 cases made." -Rated 90, Wine Spectator

"Perrier-Jouet’s NV Grand Brut is a very pleasant, mid-weight Champagne that shows lovely complexity. Suggestions of smoke, roasted nuts and light honey add character to a generous core of ripe yellow fruit. The wine offers excellent overall balance and a poised finish" -Rated 87, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Pale gold color. Toasted bread, hazelnut and fresh pear on the nose, along with a hint of fresh porcini. Fine-grained and elegant in texture, with fresh flavors of apple, orange and buttery brioche. Finishes with good length and notes of lemon and lime" -Rated 88, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"The house style tends to be lighter and brighter than many, but the Grand Brut is not always the recipient of the vital, outgoing fruit that marks the better wines from this producer. Still, this Brut works well enough with its light and incisive if slightly candied lemony fruit played off against modest if evident yeastiness. The wine is impeccably balanced and finely bubbled and has notes of chalk, toast and roasted lemon lingering in the finish" -Rated 87, Connoisseur's Guide to California Wines
