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.
Stemming from a blend of emblematic Champagne terroirs (Cramant, Avize, Aÿ, Mailly and Dizy), the Belle Époque Rosé champagne is produced in limited quantities and exclusively during exceptional vintages. The bottle of Perrier-Jouët's Belle Époque Rosé 2007 is adorned with the white Japanese anemone, a design created for the house by Emile Gallé, an Art Nouveau master, in 1902.
Vinification and ageing
A small proportion of Pinot Noir grapes undergo a red vinification by macerating the clear juice of the Pinot Noir grapes with their skins. This vintage champagne is aged for a minimum of 6 years in the house’s chalk cellars.
This champagne reveals a pale peach colour. The effervescence is delicate.
Aromatic, the nose mixes fragrances of pink flowers and wild strawberries.
The palate is seduced by this champagne’s freshness, its vivacity along with its persistent and gourmet finish.
Food and wine pairing
Perrier-Jouët's Belle Époque Rosé 2007 will complement both sweet and savoury dishes, such as lobster, red lentils or figs.
