Belle Époque Vintage 2012
Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque is the House’s icon: it is the first cuvée that appears adorned with the white Japanese anemones created by Emile Gallé in 1902. Created only when conditions are ideal in the eyes of the Cellar Master, the Belle Époque is a fine demonstration of both the House’s art of blending and the exceptional quality of its vineyards.
Testifying to the rarity of this cuvée, less than 30 vintages of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque have been produced to date.
While each Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque vintage expresses the characteristics of a specific year, this iconic cuvée is clearly defined by its delicacy, harmony and elegance. With its luminous golden colour and fine bubbles, this wine invites you to discover a palette of white floral and white-fleshed fruit nuances, enveloped by delicate honey notes. A long and expressive finish attests to the rarity of this exceptional champagne.
A limpid golden colour, of a beautiful clarity, with subtle green reflections.
Notes of white flowers mingle with those of white peach, pear and lemon.
A freshness serving a beautiful harmony.
The Cuvée Belle Époque is a perfect aperitif. At the table, its freshness and floral fragrances blend perfectly with the iodine accents of shellfish and fish, as well as the melting of white meats. All of these pairings celebrate a plate that combines elegance and flavour.
Ideal serving temperature : Serve around 12°C
Blend : 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.
Dosage : 8 g/litre
Characteristics : 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.
200 YEARS OF ELEGANCE AND REFINEMENT
Combining the tradition of “terroir”, know-how and hard work, the Perrier-Jouët house was founded in 1811 by Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Adèle Jouët and has since created champagnes with an elegant, assertive and generous style. The well-known anemone that adorns the bottle of its prestige cuvée Belle Epoque perfectly embodies this style that has lasted for over 200 years.
