BELLE ÉPOQUE BLANC DE BLANCS
The eyeA pale, luminous hue, like the rising sun.
The noseDelicate nose, characterised by aromas of white flowers: rose & white-fleshed fruit.
The palateA firm attack & satiny texture. Subtle, precise worked cuvée with a hint of white pepper.
For its elegance, its refinement and its wonderful silken texture, I associate Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs with a white orchid, my favourite flower.SÉVERINE FRERSON
Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs was originally created from the 1993 harvest and released to celebrate the new millennium – a symbolic moment for a landmark launch. True to the exacting principles of its founders, Maison Perrier-Jouët only declares a vintage in years of near perfect conditions, making all its Belle Epoque vintage cuvées a rarity, with Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs the rarest of them all.
Obviously, Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs is an exceptional champagne for exceptional celebrations, says Séverine Frerson. I consider it a wine for gastronomy, ideally paired with noble seafood – a carpaccio of scallops with citrus zest, seabass in a salt crust, turbot, lobster or langoustines, for example.
Giant glorious champagne so flowingly rich that you are dazzled by the vanilla-powdered nectar-like tasteful essence. Yellow juicy fruit with notes of coconut, mango and burgundy buttercream. Chardonnay in its essence.RICARD JUHLIN
