Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
Fresh and lively with spiraling bubbles, delicate bouquet, and a subtle complex flavors.
Serve for all occasions, hors d'oeuvres, caviar, seafood dishes with light elegant sauces, or smoked salmon.
"A crowd-pleaser, open-knit and lightly juicy, with a lively, frothy bead. Mixes white cherry, ripe apricot, pickled ginger and mineral notes, with a fresh, spiced finish."
I had a wine tasting with my girlfriends, and this wine was the hands down favorite of the night. Beating wines that were at a higher price point. Smooth, elegant, and light, the Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut is an quality under $50 wine. I highly recommend this wine for gift giving.
So far, this has been my favorite champagne I have tried. I havent ventured farther than around 40-50$ for a bottle, but I have tried a handful of others in this price range and this one is my favorite. Has a very full spectrum of flavors and there is a sense of refinement that is missing in other champagnes. Toasty and fresh with a lingering finish and a hint of sweetness, this bottle is sure to please.
My husband an I had this champagne at our wedding (I'd tried it before and liked it) and it was a wonderful choice. I'm not normally a fan of champagne, but Perrier Jouet is so light and refreshing. I've never seen my husband so tipsy!!!
I had this wine with my girlfriend the day she accepted a new job. I have to say that we throughly enjoyed this wine. Sparkling and champaign are normally not my favorite. This however was very light, dry, and full of rounded flavors. I am glad I bought 5 more bottles for future occasions!
This is a very good champagne. Crisp and fruity start followed by a dry finish. Notes of citrus, green apple, and creamy vanilla.

Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...
