Product information

The Belle Epoque Cuvée is the pride of the House of Perrier-Jouët. It is not by chance that many experts consider it among the finest prestige cuvées in the world.

Cuvée Belle Epoque is the perfect aperitif, or during a meal, its freshness and floral scents blend beautifully with the salty flavours of shellfish and fish or light white meat dishes. Sensual and silky, the flavours mingle to leave a long, fine finish.

Tasting Notes
Magnolia, honeysuckle and citrus aromas clothed in just-ripe pear and peach notes with a hint of minerality. Bold initial flavours are followed by a wonderfully persistent crystalline freshness, revealing white fruit flavours complemented by notes of almond milk.
History
A luxury champagne house focused on quality, Perrier-Jouët has family roots reaching back to 1811, some of the finest vineyards in Champagne and a reputation for crafting floral, elegant cuvées of finesse. Behind this stands a line of just seven Cellar Masters who, over two centuries, have upheld the house style. Since its 1902 collaboration with Art Nouveau pioneer Emile Gallé, creator of the anemone design for the house's Belle Epoque prestige cuvée, Perrier-Jouët has commissioned work from established and emerging artists.

Vinification Details
While preserving the House style, Hervé Deschamps blended this cuvée to emphasise the unique character of the vintage. His blend 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 further refine the generosity and sophistication of this great vintage.
