With New Years around the corner, grab something nice. Made with 100% Pinot Noir from 10 different "crus " (or villages), from the North & South areas of the Montagne de Reims, as well as the famous Cote de Bouzy. Deep salmon pink with full aromas of berry fruit and citrus mineral notes wrapped in a delicate fine mousse. On the palate flavors of raspberry and strawberry, bright acidity with spicy notes and orange zest. Long silky finish, ending with earthy yeasty mineral character. — 14 days ago

Perrier-Jouët, founded in 1811 in Epernay by Pierre-Nicolas-Marie Perrier and his wife, Adele Jouët. The firm began shipping wine to Great Britain in 1813 and to the United States by 1837. Pale lemon color with fine mousse and tiny bubbles, aromas of stone fruit and citrus. On the palate flavors of complex fresh fruit, vivid acidity, perfect balance on long finish ending with a yeasty mineral touch. Great value! A fav! Very nice! — 3 months ago
Non-vintage but the ole number 25. Blending of the 2006, 2007 and 2008 vintages if the noodle is pulling its best Pepperidge Farm impersonation. Crispy nose. Light-medium Champagne body. Dances on the palate. Not a vintage product but, quite possibly, the best non-vintage product out there. With or without grub-wowzers. 10.22.23. — a month ago
This Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs is exquisite!
We love Perrier-Jouët – a Champagne house based in Épernay – for both its delicious non-vintage and its vintage (Belle Epoque) styles. It was originally founded in 1811 by Nicolas Perrier and Rose-Adélaïde Jouët, a husband and wife team.
This particular wine is non-vintage (a blend of vintages) made with 100% Chardonnay grapes.
At first glance, it offers a shimmering pale lemon hue with a fine-beaded mousse.
The nose unfurls a panoply of medium intensity citrus and green fruit notes such as lemon curd, yellow apple, pear, and quince with layers of white blossom, dried white rose petals, oyster shell, braised fennel, brioche, toast, pastry, and slivered almonds.
The palate is dry and creamy with mouth-watering acidity, a medium body, medium alcohol, medium intensity flavors consistent with the nose and a persistent finish.
It is positively delicious – such a treat to celebrate new chapters.
