95 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$160 list] The traditional luxury cuvée from this producer, this shows new depth and richness in its latest incarnation. The spice, lingering touches of white fruits and minerality are just right. Drink now. Alcohol 12%. (Dec 2021)"

95 points Decanter: "55% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir. 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. Alcohol 12.0%. (DWWA 2021)."

Producer notes: "55% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir. Dosage 5 g/L. Cuvée Joséphine celebrates the touching story of Joseph Perrier, a father who, on the occasion of the wedding of his daughter Josephine, offered her the very best champagne he could make. For that occasion he designed the most beautiful hand painted bottle which was decorated with fine gold. Today’s cuvée, named for Joséphine and celebrating our history, has only been made in the years 1982, 1985, 1989, 1990, 1995, 1998, 2002, 2004, 2008 and 2012. Tasting Notes: A champagne with delicate, bright gold bubbles. The nose is extremely fine encompassing notes of walnut, hazelnut and bitter almond combined with iris and acacia flowers. Hints of vanilla and spice upon aeration. The champagne expresses the subtle mariage of pinot noir and chardonnay. The elegance of one combined with the strength of the other creates a lively bouquet of prunes, grapes and flowers."
