Here at Oasis Bars, we love a glass of champagne to help celebrate a special occasion and we were delighted to be asked to work with the small but prestigious Champagne House of Joseph Perrier, which was founded in 1825 at Châlons-sur-Marne. Family-owned Joseph Perrier continues to craft traditional Brut Champagne and age it to perfection (minimum of three years) and whilst others have cut back on the ageing of their Brut Champagnes, Joseph Perrier has stayed the course. Also unlike some other Champagne houses, Joseph Perrier grows a high proportion of its own grapes and the remaining grapes come from 30 select crus from the renowned Montagne de Rheims and La Côte des Blancs that have supplied Joseph Perrier from father to son for three and four generations.
Cuvée Royale is the house’s flagship wine and most traditional offering. It is a blend of 35% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay, and 30% Pinot Meunier. The result is a creamy, softly fruity and eminently drinkable Joseph Perrier Cuvée Royale Brut, a full flavoured Champagne which is crisp but not acidic. We think it’s exquisite! In addition to Cuvée Royale, Joseph Perrier produce small quantities of Blanc de Blancs, Rosé Brut, Demi-Sec, and vintage selections, including Cuvée Joséphine.
Pictured here is their white high gloss Bar-in-a-box, set up and ready for action at a function last year, with a smaller matching screen to house some of the equipment.
