Description

A fine vintage champagne in a refined and designer box

The producer

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 vineyard

A perfect expression of the House's style and the fruit of the most harmonious blend, Perrier-Jouët's Belle Époque Limited Edition 120 Years 2014 is made from emblematic Champagne crus (Cramant, Avize, Chouilly, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Vertus and Mailly).

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.

In 2022, Perrier-Jouët commissioned two Austrian designers, Katharina Mischer and Thomas Traxler, to celebrate the 120th anniversary of this emblematic design. This collaboration resulted in a limited-edition box showcasing a layering of 70 different species that thrive in the Champagne vineyards, revealing an elegant and creative metamorphosis of this iconic design.

Aged for a minimum of 6 years in the house’s cellars, this Brut Champagne comprises a dosage of 8 g/litre.

The vintage

A particularly mild and rainy winter preceded a dry and sunny spring. The summer was marked by contrasting temperatures and heavy rainfall. The milder conditions from September onwards were ideal for ensuring optimal ripeness of the grapes, which gave rise to a wine that harmoniously blends complexity and fruitiness.

The blend

Chardonnay (50%)

Pinot Noir (45%)

Pinot Meunier (5%).
