Perrier-Jouët was founded in 1811 by Pierre-Nicolas Perrier, who added the maiden name of his wife, Adele Jouët, to create the house. Established in the heart of Épernay, Perrier-Jouët quickly began to build an international following from its success in exporting to foreign markets. Early entry to the UK (1815) meant that by 1847 exports represented nearly ninety per cent of House sales.
This European success allowed the family to increase their vineyard holdings, hand-picking land in the grand cru villages of Aÿ, Avize, Cramant, Mailly. When replanting vines they focused on chardonnay, bringing the lightness to the Perrier-Jouët wines which is still a characteristic of the wines today.
About Waris-Larmandier: Since 2000, Marie-Helene defends the house’s continuity with her three children Jean-Philippe, Pierre-Louis and Ines, leading the family into a sixth generation of winemakers. The family spirit has evolved with the arrival of a new practice: biodynamics exhibited by Jean-Philippe. After the quality of its champagnes, the essence of the Waris-Larmandier family is its sense for relationship: singular, faithful and true to its amateurs. This artist mixes her passion for art and her love for Champagne.
Pascal has been making wines for his parents brand since 1993 and over the years he decided to establish his own brand in 2004 - Pascal Doquet. Pascal is dedicated to his vineyards - his viticultural methods are 100% organic and he uses late ripening like Egly Ouriet, Benoît Lahaye and Rémi Leroy to achieve full maturity in his fruit. He doesn't harvest less than 10.5 degrees of potential alcohol, very high for champagne – so there is never any need for chaptalisation or addition of sugar.
The winemaking is natural and non-interventionist with only native yeasts used for the primary ferment and bottling takes place with no filtration or fining. He does use malolactic fermentation and then the wine remains on lees for around five months, with one third of the production being aged in old oak barrels before the secondary ferment in bottle. These truly are incredibly intense and vivid expressions of champagne. He has a wide range of wines and many are site specific, with each cuvée expressing its own distinctive character.
Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs: This Champagne is made by selecting and blending Chardonnays from the best terroirs across Côte des Blancs. Hervé adds a touch of reserve wines (up to 15% from the last three vintages), and the Champagne is aged for three years on the lees in the House’s Epernay cellars. A very light dosage of 8g/ltr is the final touch, creating a Champagne with vibrance and freshness.
Waris-Larmandier Particules Crayeuses: Grapes are hand-harvested and crushed in a traditional 4000 kg vertical wooden basket press; only free-run juice is used for the primary fermentation. Particules Crayeuses is barrel-fermented with native yeasts in 600L demi-muid Burgundy barrels and Avize Champagne barrels. Malolactic fermentation is spontaneous following alcoholic fermentation. It is a vintage blend with the addition of 30% of wine from a solera started in the 2013 vintage. The base wines are aged 6-to-18 months before secondary fermentation in bottle, followed by 24-to-36 months of lees aging, sur lattes. Disgorgements are done according to the lunar cycle—dosage 4g/L.
Pascal Doquet 'Arpège' Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs: There are different villages from Vertus, Villeneuve & Mont Aíme. The base year is 2014 (49%) with some reserves from 2013 (27%) and 2012 (24%). Organic, Natural Yeasts, long ageing. Bottled March 2015 and disgorged December 3rd 2020.
