From the excellent 2012 vintage, Joseph Perrier Cuvée Josephine is rich and luxurious, an excellent food Champagne, or one to just indulge in on its own. A fragrance of raspberries, scents of peony roses, jasmine, toasted brioche, vanilla, milk toffee and honey. The wine is full-bodied and elegant with a long and complex finish of vegetal, fruit and bread flavours and small persistent bubbles.
“Mandarin, all shimmer and dance, barely off the runway but this is a fast jet. Seems medium weight but goes deep even if taut and high wire in its keen balance and crystal spritz.” – 95 points, Gold Medal, Decanter World Wine Awards 2021
“A magnificently elegant and aromatic vintage; a combination of top quality chardonnays minerality and the structure of the best pinots, sublimed by a few bunches of Cumières. A new favourite in store!” – Benjamin Fourmon, Joseph Perrier
