ABOUT THIS WINE
An iconic light up bottle and an extraordinary gift! Perrier Jouet's Cuvee Belle Epoque is a Champagne that's been celebrated for generations. Produced only in years when, in the judgment of Cellar Master Hervé Deschamps, the seasons have aligned perfectly, it is a captivating demonstration, not only of the art of blending, but also of the exceptional quality of the Perrier-Jouët vineyard.
Blend: 50% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir, & 5% Pinot Meunier
95 POINTS - "The iconic Belle Epoque bottle reveals a well-structured, taut wine. With Chardonnay very much in evidence in the mineral texture, the wine is almost as floral as the bottle. Drink from 2021." - Wine Enthusiast
94 POINTS - "A very complex and toasty nose with nicely cut, autolytic, reductive kick that adds flinty notes to the lemons and pink grapefruit, as well as fresh, lightly spiced pastry. The palate has a super fluid and attractively fresh feel with a bold, sweetly fruited core that delivers a long, succulent and elegant finish. This is in form! Drink or hold.” - James Suckling
This 2012-vintage Champagne from Perrier-Jouët has been made with a combination of 50% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir and 5% Pinot Meunier grapes to emphasise the unique character of its vintage. The nose is delicate and floral, hints of lime blossom and acacia sweetened by gentle honey. The palate offers notes of white peaches, pears, lime blossom and sweet almond before a gentle, mineral finish. Try pairing this Champagne with shellfish or poultry.
