The Blanc de Blancs by Perrier Jouët is a fine and harmonious champagne that expresses all the magnificence of this French winery, produced with Chardonnay grapes from 2 vineyards.
In the glass, Perrier Jouët's Blanc de Blancs has a bright straw yellow color crossed by a very fine and very persistent bubble . The nose is fragrant and complex with floral hints of hawthorn followed by citrus notes such as lemon and grapefruit. It also has mineral and honeyed smokes , while the taste is strong and round with a long and intriguing finish. Ideal for uncorking on special occasions, excellent in combination with oysters, caviar and raw fish.
After a rigorous selection, the grapes are harvested manually and fermented in stainless steel . Finally, the Blanc de Blancs matures for eight years in the maison's cellars before being put on the market.
