Vintage 2012: After a mild winter, spring frosts and hail damaged the vineyards. By mid-July, summer had arrived in earnest, with dry heat and enough sunshine to bring the grapes to perfect ripeness across all the crus. The rain returned at the end of September, just as the harvest began. Although marked by difficult weather conditions, 2012 nevertheless produced promising wines. Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Rosé 2012 is a cuvée characterised by the aromatic richness and freshness of Chardonnay, balanced by the frank and lush grapes of Pinot Noir and fruity Meunier.
50% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir, 5% Meunier. Although Perrier-Jouët is renowned for its Chardonnay vineyards, it also has remarkable parcels of Pinot Noir. Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque, whose blend contains the two grape varieties in almost equal proportions, illustrates this perfectly. This exceptional vintage cuvée is also an expression of Perrier-Jouët’s expertise in the art of blending. The Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims is chosen not for its power but to support and sublimate the delicate structure of the Chardonnay from the Grand Cru of Cramant and Avize. A small quantity of Meunier de Dizy completes the balance between the two other grape varieties.
