The Grande Marque House of Joseph Perrier was founded in 1825, and remains today as it has always been, family owned and family run. The cellars are located in Chalons-en-Champagne, while the vineyards are to be found in the villages of Hautvillers, Cumieres, & Damery (planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay) and Verneuil (planted with Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay) which all face south overlooking Epernay and the river Marne. Joseph Perrier makes fewer than 1m bottles per year and is distributed only through independent merchants, exclusively in Scotland by Cockburns of Leith and their parent company Wine Importers.
Joseph Perrier Blanc de Blancs NV
The nose is elegant and complex. Aromas of white flowers, apricot and Mirabelle plums. The palate has plenty of fresh citrus notes and lively acidity, some touches of spice and vanilla, rich brioche elements and a long lemony finish.
