Grand Brut Magnum (1.5L) | Gift box
Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut Magnum Gift Box is a floral, harmonious, elegant and structured champagne that fully reveals the notes of Chardonnay, perfectly complemented by Pinot Noir and Meunier. Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut epitomises the heritage of Maison Perrier-Jouët. Perpetuating the House’s tradition of making brut champagne.
A heritage that continues: The history of Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut dates back to 1846. It was in response to the English preference for drier champagnes that Perrier-Jouët launched Cuvée K, recognised as the world’s first lightly dosed champagne, a category of champagne that is now known as “Brut”. According to the House’s records, Cuvée K had a sugar level of less than 5%, whereas the champagnes of the time contained around 40%. Thanks to the very high quality of its grapes, Perrier-Jouët used very little added sugar. As the direct heir to this historic cuvée, Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut faithfully perpetuates a tradition that made its reputation at the time. Beyond the fact that it is part of the history of the House, this champagne is the pioneer of the House style.
To craft Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut, Hervé Deschamps, Cellar Master, selects the best wines from at least fifty different crus. Each vintage is meticulously blended with a percentage of reserve wines to guarantee the style and quality of this cuvée year after year. This complex blend reveals the floral nuances of the Chardonnay (20%) – mainly from the Côte des Blancs, but also from the Sud of Épernay and Montagne de Reims. The other two Champagne grape varieties enhance it, preserving its elegance. Pinot Noir (40%) – Montagne de Reims North and South, also Petite Montagne de Reims and Aube – gives it structure and power, as well as a form of purity. The Meunier (40%) – from the Marne Valley and the Épernay region – provides roundness and a link.
