The history of Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut dates back to 1846. It was to respond to the English preference for drier champagnes that Maison Perrier-Jouët launched cuvée K, recognized as the first champagne with a low sugar content in the world. , a category of champagne that we know today as “Brut”. According to the records of the House, cuvée K was composed of a sugar level of less than 5%, while the champagnes of the time contained around 40%. Thanks to the very high quality of its grapes, Maison Perrier-Jouët had very little use of added sugar.
To produce Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut, Séverine Frerson selects around fifty different crus from across Champagne. Each cru is meticulously blended with a percentage of reserve wines which guarantees the style and quality of this cuvée year after year. Chardonnay comes mainly from the emblematic villages of Chouilly, Avize and Cramant on the Côte des Blancs. Their floral nuances are intensively linked by the structure of Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims (to the north, Verzy and Verzenay, and to the south, Ambonnay). Finally, Meunier from Dizy and Damery in the Marne Valley bring notes of orchard fruit.
50% Pinot Noir
25% Pinot Meunier
Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé is inspired by the prestigious Blason de France cuvée, created in 1955 and served in gourmet restaurants. This wine was designed to be enjoyed during a meal thanks to its complex and generous flavors, contrary to the popular idea that rosé champagne is reserved for dessert.
To make Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé, Séverine Frerson selects wines from around twenty different crus. The floral notes of Chardonnay from Chouilly, Avize or Oger on the Côte des Blancs are balanced with the breadth of Meunier from Dizy, Damery and Vincelles in the Marne Valley. The Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims (Verzy and Verzenay in the north, and Ambonnay in the south) give the wine strength and structure, two ideal qualities for perfecting pairings. Pinot Noir is characterized by its red skin and white juice. Among the wines made from this grape variety and used in the production of this cuvée, only a small proportion (10 to 15%) are red wines obtained by maceration of the grapes. This is what gives this champagne its beautiful salmon pink color and copper highlights.
The creation of Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs in 2017 completes the Blason Collection with a single-varietal cuvée to embody over time the expression of Maison Perrier-Jouët's know-how to reveal the essence of Chardonnay. This champagne perpetuates a tradition that dates back to the last century: in the 1920s, the House offered its first 100% Chardonnay cuvée, long before these champagnes were officially called "Blanc de Blancs".
«To make Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs, I choose Chardonnay from several of the best crus in the region», says Séverine Frerson. Of course, the famous villages of Cramant, Avize and Chouilly on the Côte des Blancs, but also those of Trépail and Villers-Marmery north of the Montagne de Reims. I also add the regions of Sézannais and Vitryat, two lands of the future to which I pay particular attention”. The wines from these crus are blended with a small proportion of reserve wines, also 100% Chardonnay, to ensure the quality and style of the House. After aging for 3 years on lees in the cellars of Perrier-Jouët, this cuvée is ready to reveal itself, fully releasing its freshness and vitality.
