Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut champagne

Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut champagne,
$35.99-$42.99, 91 points, poured a furious onslaught of medium-sized bubbles, settling-down to a consistent and energetic speedy bottom to top flow; the color was a lovely light brass.
Aromatically a bit shy, but soft pome notes with fresh baked French bread smells were delightful.
Light, crisp (excellent fizz throughout the early palate), stony, and with flavors reflective of the aromas with just a hint of crème brûlée proved, to me, that my Conseiller, vin-insanity, pointed me in the right direction.
Finished long on the trailing palate, quince, melon rind, quite dry without being wizened, and a perfect 12% alcohol.

  1. Wow, I just might come to like/love Champagne!

  2. Sounds enchanting :) That Charles Heidsieck, Rosé Reserve, that I had last night was absolutely fabulous!

  3. VG: Being lead by the nose has its price: locally it's (Charles Heidsieck, Rosé, not even the Reserve) $67.99-$79.99; it better be fab!
