WINE MAKING NOTES

THE MOST ACCOMPLISHED EXPRESSION OF THE PERRIER-JOUËT STYLE

A single harvest, a single grape variety, a single terroir.

The assemblage of this exceptional cuvée is a work of great precision. The Chardonnay grapes are sourced exclusively from two legendary vineyard parcels: Bouron Leroi and Bouron du midi, situated in the heart of the Côte des Blancs in the terroir of Cramant. Situated half way up the South-East facing slope in this exceptional Grand Cru, these two vineyard parcels benefit from exposure to the first rays of the early morning sun, encouraging a slow and even ripening of the grapes.

The cuvée Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs 2004 is the result of a year of contrasts. After a cold winter and spring with plenty of frosts, the warmth returned in September and the harvest the grapes had attained a perfect balance of sugar and acidity.

Dosage : 8g/l – Matured for at least eight years in the House cellars.

CHARACTERISTICS

THE HOUSE'S RAREST AND MOST PRECIOUS CUVÉE

Sweetness touched with a harmonious vivacity

APPEARANCE 

Clear and bright. Opalescent with tinges of green and a persistent mousse.

NOSE

Generous, yet also delicate aromas fill the nose: lilac blossom and young white fruits such as peach and grapefruit. Hints of orange confit, vanilla and cream bring a subtle richness to the bouquet.

PALATE

The attack is fresh, racy and enticing. In the mouth it is delicate yet dynamic, with beautiful length that seduces the palate.

BEAUTING: FOOD PAIRING
BY PERRIER-JOUËT

THE SIMPLICITY OF PERFECTION

An exceptional cuvée which paints a perfumed landscape: a delicateness to be paired only with the most refined of flavours.

In 1902, Emile Gallé designed a delicate spray of anemones to be engraved on the prestigious cuvées of Perrier-Jouët Champagnes. The House has remained loyal to this artistic heritage ever since. The same tradition gave rise to Beauting: a vision of gastronomy which embraces Beauty and Good Food, turning each dish into a work of art, in perfect harmony with each cuvée. A unique sensory experience and a feast for the eye and the palate alike.

The generosity and elegance of this enticing wine matches perfectly with caviar or shell-fish such as langoustines, scallops or lobster.
