BLANC DE BLANCS
The eyePale gold with hints of green, delightfully lively, luminous champagne.
The noseAromas of hedgerow flowers – elderberry, acacia and honeysuckle – and tangy citrus.
The palateLingering freshness with a surprisingly smooth, mellow finish.
Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs reminds me of velvet – not a heavy velvet, but one with a silky texture. That’s because, although it is a very vivacious, dynamic cuvée, it also has substance and density – and, of course, great elegance.SÉVERINE FRERSON
The arrival of Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs in 2017 completed the classic collection with a single-grape cuvée destined to become the enduring expression of Maison.
Perrier-Jouët’s savoir-faire in revealing the quintessence of Chardonnay. In fact, it perpetuates a tradition dating back around a hundred years: the House introduced its first all Chardonnay cuvées in the 1920s, long before such champagnes became known as “Blanc de Blancs”.
Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs is ideal as an aperitif – a wine that instantly creates good vibes. It is equally delightful when paired with a carpaccio of seabass.
Charming and expressive, bursting from the glass with aromas of crisp yellow orchard fruit, pear, white flowers and subtle hints of buttered toast. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and fine-boned, its pretty core of fruit is girdled by succulent acids, concluding with a delicately chalky finish.WILLIAM KELLEY (WINE ADVOCATE, 2020)
