Luminous Belle Epoque Brut
LIGHT UP 2021
Thoughtfully designed to elevate any celebration, the Limited-Edition Luminous Belle Epoque brings to life the iconic Japanese anemone design, originally created by Art Nouveau Artist Emile Gallé.
With a battery life of 10-hours, Luminous Belle Epoque brings an incandescent spark to any evening.
A mild winter was followed by a cool, wet spring which resulted in the late blooming of the vines between 16th and 21st June 2012. The summer was hot and bathed in sunshine from mid-July all the way until the end of the harvest, favouring the maturity of the grapes. The rain only returned at the end of the harvest period. These excellent conditions produced an ideal balance between sugar and acidity, resulting in a wine of exceptional harmony, with great energy, character and potential.
A pale, translucent gold, with radiant clarity and subtle glints of apple green.
Distinctive notes of white flowers combine with white peaches, crisp pears and lemon.
Freshness prevails, releasing a beautiful harmony.
FLORAL · ELEGANT
Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Brut champagne is an icon of the House, the original Belle Epoque Brut cuvée is adorned with the legendary spray of Japanese white anemones created by Emile Gallé in 1902. Produced only in years when, in the judgment of Cellar Master Hervé Deschamps, the seasons have aligned perfectly, it is a captivating demonstration, not only of the art of blending, but also of the exceptional quality of the Perrier-Jouët vineyard. Testifying to the rarity of this cuvée, less than 30 vintages of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Brut champagne have been produced to date.
A MASTERPIECE OF BLENDING
Though Maison Perrier-Jouët is famed for its Chardonnay vineyards, it also possesses exceptional plots of Pinot Noir – a fact magnificently demonstrated by Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Brut, which combines the two grape varieties in almost equal proportions. This outstanding vintage cuvée is also a supreme example of the art of blending in the Perrier-Jouët style, with Pinot Noir grapes from the north of the Montagne de Reims being used, not for their power, but in order to support, accompany and enhance the delicate structure of Chardonnay from the celebrated Grand Cru villages of Cramant and Avize. A small quantity of Pinot Meunier grapes from Dizy perfects the balance between the two.
