Since its foundation in 1811, Perrier-Jouët House of Champagne has been nourished by authenticity, elegance and a real passion for nature.
True to this philosophy, the Cellar Master Hervé Deschamps has drawn his inspiration from the promising beauty of nature and the delicate scents of the Maison Belle Epoque garden, Perrier-Jouët’s historical house, in order to create the f irst ephemeral cuvée from the Champagne region; a rare and elegant vintage cuvée, to taste exclusively this coming spring…
In true artisan style, Hervé Deschamps fashioned the cuvee Belle Epoque Edition Première as he would compose a spring bouquet. The expression of a single year, this wine gives special importance to Chardonnay Grands Crus (90%), selected for their elegance, freshness and vivacity, married with the delicacy, body and suppleness of macerated Pinots Noirs (10%), principally from the commune of Vertus, the only village of the Côte des Blancs to produce a red wine.
Floral, stylish, and diamond-cut, the cuvée Belle Epoque Edition Première achieves the ideal balance between a vintage wine and the constant elegance of the Perrier-Jouët style.
On the nose, delicate hints of juicy yellow fruit, lemon, the zest of Yuzu and citrus fruits and the dominant scent of white elderflowers evoke the ephemeral period of blossoming that the Japanese call Hanami; it is a veritable bouquet of ripe fruit and floral aromas that harmonises with the first mineral and metallic accents of powdered chalk and flint. On the palate, it has a fresh and lively attack, followed by a final rounded note, ample and generous.
Matured for at least 5 years in the cellars of the House.
