Joseph Perrier is a medium sized champagne house located in the town of Chalons-en-Champagne, south east of Reims. A key pride of the house is its multi-generational leadership, since its inception in 1825 by Joseph Perrier himself until 1998. Benjamin Fourmon now leads the way, in what is very much, a boutique style Champagne House.
Whilst an uncommon brand to most of the modern champagne buyers, JP was once a favourite of HRH Queen Victoria, and the royal seal adorning each bottle is a regal reminder of this preference.
25% Chardonnay, 70% Pinot Noir and 5% Pinot Meunier, of which about 12% is red wine from our own vineyards in Cumières.
Ageing : 3 to 4 years.
Dosage : 7g/L
Caramel colour, with a medium strength bubble stream. It offers a nose of deep caramelised fruits, like sultanas, and a trace of honey. Then, you will find red fruits, with wild violet and liqourice notes to follow. Ripe yet racy, with beautiful length. Fine and full on the palate, with a touch of mint on the finish.
Absolutely fabulous with Mac ‘n’ Cheese, fried field mushrooms, fried chicken with skinny fries, roasted squash with mint and toasted pumpkin seeds or tagliolini with white truffle! Go! Go! Go!
