Marks and reviews
The richness and minerality of an exceptional champagne revealed by Joseph Perrier
Under the shade of its 3 kilometres of underground galleries of Gallo-Roman origin, the high-quality Joseph Perrier Champagne House perpetuates a know-how and a respect for tradition which has been transmitted from generation to generation. Each plot is vinified separately so that each terroir’s identity can be expressed with bespoke ageing processes.
Joséphine de Joseph Perrier, an exceptional cuvée produced only during outstanding years, was borne from a father’s wish to offer a champagne made from the finest blend for his daughter’s wedding. Dressed in a magnificent, hand-painted bottle and decorated in fine gold, the 2012 Joséphine de Joseph Perrier is the product of a selection of Premier and Grand Crus from Champagne (Ambonnay, Cumières, Bergères-lès-Vertus). The harvest is from 2012 and the dosage is 5gr/litre.
The wine is a beautiful golden colour. Effervescence is fine and delicate.
The nose, which perfectly brings together fineness and complexity, seduces with its fragrances of shelled nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts, bitter almonds), iris flowers and acacia. Aeration gives this champagne its complexity, which is marked by notes of vanilla and spices.
The palate is the perfect expression of grape varieties of which the blend is composed. Over the course of tasting, the very elegant palate reveals delicious aromas of prunes, grapes and flowers.
The 2012 Joséphine de Joseph Perrier is the ideal companion for a fresh dish (Saint Jacques carpaccio), fish (sea bass) and even game.
For an optimal tasting, it is advised that this champagne be cooled in an ice bucket for about twenty minutes before being served. To be enjoyed at around 10°C.
