It displays a robe of pale rosé with hints of orange and a very lively mousse. The bouquet offers rounded yet delicate aromas of red fruits (red currants, raspberries and pomegranate), combined with blood orange and grapefruit. This is followed by hints of nuts, brioche, honey and caramel. The palate is initially lively and fresh, yet rich, generous and powerful, yet delicate, with a beautiful purity of fruit, great finesse and a long, lingering finish.

Perrier-Jouët was established in 1811 by Pierre-Nicolas-Marie Perrier, adding the maiden name of his wife, Ad le Jouët, to name the house. They established themselves in the town of Épernay, and set about building up their brand and exploring foreign markets; by 1815 they were already exporting wine to England, and within a few more years they added the USA to their list of export destinations. Such success obviously led to a greater demand for their wines, and the family were soon acquiring or planting new vineyards in Aÿ, Avize, Cramant, Mailly and elsewhere. Many were planted with Chardonnay, bringing a delicacy to the Perrier-Jouët style, a style said to have been favoured by Pierre-Nicolas-Marie, and a trait that can still be found in the wines of Perrier-Jouët today.
