The prestige cuvée Belle Epoque is a generous vintage unveiling magnolia and honeysuckle flavours enveloped in pear and peach notes, enhanced by a hint of mineral sparkle.
Hervé Deschamps’ Belle Epoque Brut brings out the freshness and elegance of the Chardonnays (50%) from the grands crus of Cramant and Avize. From the Montagne de Reims, the Pinots Noirs (45%) display a generosity and delicate complexity that prolong the Chardonnays’ finesse. Finally, the rounded charm of the Pinots Meuniers (5%) from Dizy provides the finishing touch to this beautifully balanced cuvée. Over six years’ ageing in Perrier-Jouët’s cellars and a low dosage (9 grams per litre) further refine the generosity and sophistication of this great vintage.
Colour: Bright gold colour and subtle sparkle
Nose: An inviting prelude to rich nuances of white flowers and white-fleshed fruit, rounded out by delicious notes of honey.
Palate: A long, expansive finish testifies to the rare quality of this exceptional champagne. The personality of this iconic cuvée is clearly defined: delicacy, harmony and elegance combine to captivate the senses.
History of Perrier-Jouët
At Maison Perrier-Jouët, the history of champagne began over 200 years ago. The House was founded by two independent-minded free spirits who shared a passion for art and nature – and a bold vision for champagne. The House has stayed true to this founding philosophy of creative freedom and an unconventional observation of nature ever since.
Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Rose-Adélaïde Jouët shared a love of nature and the arts. She was a cultured young woman from a Norman merchant family; he a masterful vintner and botanist. A year after their wedding, in 1811 they founded Maison Perrier-Jouët: born of their desire to create a Champagne House with a difference.
The Perrier-Jouët Classic collection comprises Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs, Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut and Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé. These refined champagnes with delicate floral notes epitomise the House’s 200-year expertise in the art of blending. Their timeless elegance is reflected in the bottle’s distinctive slender neck and rounded shoulders.
