Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut Champagne NV Wine Review (NW)
Lively, bubbly nose of green apple and lemon
Medium bodied on the palate
Good acidity and tartness on the finish with fresh fruit and floral notes
Here's one of the classic non-vintage Champagnes. The bubbles are intense and persistent on opening, and the flavors are fresh and inviting. Enjoy as an aperitif, with appetizers, or as a late night toast as I did with Billy of The Wine Cask Blog and our wives. Thanks for the treat, Billy!
Expect to pay around $40, which is right in the range for good non-vintage Champagne from the classic Champagne houses. And raise a glass!
