Perrier-Jouët : Belle Epoque 2013

A seductive, delicate and gourmet vintage champagne

The estate

The Perrier-Jouët Champagne House was founded by Pierre Perrier and his wife Adèle Jouët in 1811. Produced from exceptional Champagne terroirs (Aÿ, Mailly-Champagne, Avize and Cramant), the house's wines are renowned for their unique style which combines aromatic richness, refinement and finesse. From 1861, Perrier-Jouët became Queen Victoria’s official champagne, then that of the French Imperial Court.

Owned by the Champagne Company, GH Mumm, since 1959, Perrier-Jouët's uniqueness lies in its iconic cuvée's prestigious "Belle Epoque" bottle, designed by Emile Gallé in 1969.

The wine

An iconic champagne, Belle Époque by Perrier-Jouët is the first wine to be decorated with a white Japanese anemone, a design created in 1902 by Émile Gallé, an Art Nouveau master.

Less than 30 vintages have been produced to date, making it extremely rare. This exceptional champagne is made from fine Champagne terroirs (Montagne de Reims, Cramant, Avize, Dizy).

The vintage

A cold winter preceded a spring whose coolness and humidity delayed the flowering period. Hot, dry and sunny, July was punctuated by severe storms. The mild autumnal conditions were ideal and helped to refine the grape’s ripeness until the harvest. Showcasing a perfect balance between sugar and acidity, the grapes harvested at optimal ripeness led to a champagne that harmoniously combines delicacy and character with an exceptional ageing potential.

The blend

Chardonnay (50%)

Pinot Noir (45%)

Pinot Meunier (5%).
