A BEAUTIFUL BALANCE BETWEEN OPULANCE AND ELEGANCE
Aromas of white fruits - lemon, white peach, pear and grapefruit - give way to hints of pineapple and fresh spring flowers.
APPEARANCE : A beautiful pale yellow, clear with hints of green and a lively mousse.
NOSE : Aromas of white fruits - lemon, white peach, pear and grapefruit - give way to hints of pineapple and fresh spring flowers. This is followed by richer aromas of nuts, marzipan and sweet spice. Delicate, yet generous.
PALATE : The attack is lively, with a marked minerality that feels both elegant yet rounded. Sensual and silky, harmonious and beautifully balanced, the flavours mingle to leave a long, fine finish.
“Belle Epoque 2006 is an exceptional vintage, a silky caress that perfectly expresses the spirit of Perrier-Jouët”
In 1902, Emile Gallé designed a delicate spray of anemones to be engraved on the prestigious cuvées of Perrier-Jouët Champagnes. The House has remained loyal to this artistic heritage ever since.
The same tradition gave rise to Beauting: a vision of gastronomy which embraces Beauty and Good Food, turning each dish into a work of art, in perfect harmony with each cuvée. A unique sensory experience and a feast for the eye and the palate alike.
When served between 10°C and 12°C, cuvée Belle Epoque 2006 is the perfect aperitif.
During a meal, its freshness and floral scents blend beautifully with the salty flavours of shellfish and fish or light white meat dishes.
Hervé Deschamps has blended this wine to achieve the ideal balance between the uniqueness of the 2006 harvest and the consistency of the House style. Its assemblage celebrates the freshness, minerality and floral notes of Chardonnay (50%) from the famous vineyards of Cramant, Avize and Chouilly; and the generosity, structure and fresh fruit aromas of the Pinot Noir terroirs of Mailly, Verzy and Aÿ (45%). Finally 5% Pinot Meunier from Dizy brings notes of ripe fruits and a roundness that brings the perfect balance to the wine.
Dosage : 9g/l – Matured for at least 6 years in the cellars of the house.
