Perrier-Jouët has been mixing tradition and creation for two centuries now. From 1811 onwards, 7 cellars followed one another, preserving the know-how for each generation. Today, 99% of the estate is classified as Crus. So here are two of the House’s big names. First, Blason Rosé champagne: the Chef de Caves wanted to create a full-bodied cuvée structured around a blend of great finesse but exalting a certain freshness.
Such a blend requires precise gestures to bring out the elegance that is characteristic of Perrier-Jouët champagne. The choice of Crus is carefully adjusted according to the profile of the harvest. An addition of around 20% reserve wines creates a balance between the consistency of the Perrier-Jouët style and the effects of the year’s climate, based on the model of the Grand Brut vintage slightly enriched with Chardonnay, the Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé combines the elegance and finesse of Chardonnay (25%), the structure of Pinot Noir (50%, some of it vinified in red) and the fruitiness of Pinot Meunier (25%). It is a particularly complex grape variety to work with, and Perrier-Jouët has acquired specific know-how in this respect.
The second being Blanc de Blancs : the seventh Chef de Caves de Perrier-Jouët, Hervé Deschamps, chose to build this exceptional cuvée around Chardonnay and then blended the Chardonnay from the best terroirs in the region.
