Champagne house Perrier-Jouët has expanded its portfolio with the release of a new Blanc de Blancs. Created by cellar master Hervé Deschamps, it’s the first new cuvée to be developed since Belle Époque Blanc de Blancs was launched 20 years ago.

Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs is made from Chardonnay grapes grown in the Côte de Blancs and Montagne de Reims. The blend includes up to 15% of reserve wines and has a dosage of 8g/l.

‘Chardonnay is our house grape and this cuvée is about the finesse and beauty of Chardonnay,’ commented Hamish Millar, senior brand manager for Perrier-Jouët at Pernod Ricard UK.

With delicate floral aromas, the nose is lifted, clean and fresh. A good aperitif style, the champagne is light and lemony on the palate, with a lively mousse, crisp acidity and a clean, mineral finish.

£70 RRP, Pernod Ricard UK, 020 8538 4092
