ProducerNote
Founded in Epernay in 1811, Perrier-Jouët owns 108 hectares of vineyards located in
the heart of the Champagne region. Their famous flagship Champagne, the Cuvée
Belle Epoque was created in 1964 after Pierre Ernst discovered an original Emile Gallé
bottle made in the Art Nouveau style in 1902. A master glass-maker reproduced the
raised enamel decoration in order to create a celebration of the spirit of this
imaginative and decadent age. In 1990, the Perrier-Jouët’s 18th Century family
house on the Avenue de Champagne became the Maison Belle Epoque, housing
the world’s leading collection of original Art Nouveau works.


Vineyard
The calcareous chalk soil of Champagne play an important role in the vine’s growth,
maintaining the humidity of the soil during the dry summers, but also forces the vines
roots to delve deeper in the soil to look for nutrients. The vine then produces less
leaves which encourages the grapes to ripen and concentrate the flavours in the
berries. The dominant Chardonnay comes from Cramant, Avize and Chouilly,
bringing freshness, minerality and dominant floral notes to the blend. The Pinot Noir
comes from vineyards in Mailly, Verzy & Aÿ, bringing generosity, supple qualities and
fresh fruit notes, while a touch of Pinot Meunier from Dizy adds ripe fruit aromas,
roundness and balance.


Winemaking
The blend honours the heritage of the House style, while emphasising the unique
character of the 2011 vintage. The freshness and elegance of the Chardonnay is
combined with the generosity of the Pinot Noir and the rounded charm of the Pinot
Meunier. The grapes were gently pressed in a pneumatic press and then vinified
according to the traditional Champagne method. This wine was aged for a
minimum five years in the cellar. A low dosage of nine grams per litre further refines
the sophistication and delicate palate of this vintage.


TastingNote
This intricate and floral cuvee is smooth and rounded, with fresh aromas of almond,
white peach, and pear enveloped in candied citrus peel notes. A wonderfully
harmonious vintage, which displays an invigorating freshness - liveliness and
refinement in perfect balance.
