Champagne has always been synonymous with luxury, success and joyful events. It is a rare product resulting from outstanding expertise, which contributes to its high-end reputation.


As early as the 18th century, it was tasted in all the great royal courts in Europe, Russia and the colonies. It was the favorite drink of King George 2 and Queen Victoria, in particular. 


When it comes to tasting, its versatile aromas are suited to a wide range of celebrations from aperitifs to sit-down dinners.

Brut, blanc de blancs or rosé?

To help you choose the right cuvée, it’s best to begin by deciding on the type of blend: brut, blanc de blancs or rosé.


Grand Brut

Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut is the result of an exclusive combination of Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay. It is very versatile, making it the perfect accompaniment from the apéritif to the main dish.

Blanc de Blancs

Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs is made exclusively from Chardonnay, the house’s emblematic grape variety. For Séverine Frerson, the Perrier-Jouët Cellar Master, “it is a lively, dynamic wine. The freshness of this champagne makes it ideal for the apéritif.”

Blason Rosé

Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé is a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier specifically designed to bestow the wine with the necessary power to suit many pairings, making it the perfect partner for celebratory meals from starter to dessert.

These three champagnes are made from grapes harvested during the current vintage and a set proportion of reserve wines from previous vintages. Their blend is decided on each year by the house’s cellar master to guarantee a consistent style from one vintage to the next.
