When creating the Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque, the challenge is to take the same cru grown on two separate plots of lands and espress both the quintessence of the Perrier Jouet vineyards and the character of that year. The wines must be laid down for at least six years to allow the aromas to develop and merge to create a balanced yet contrasting whole. The champagne is only produced in years when the harvest is considered worthy which is why the ‘Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs cuvee is so precious and so rare.
On the eye the Blanc de Blancs is a lively clear yellow. It is rich on the nose with an endless succession of aromas containing floral, fruity and citrus notes.
The palate is fresh and sharp with floral, citrus and tropical fruits of pineapple and ginger accenting the mouth. There is a supple delicate roundness with gentle silky laciness contributing to a full but subtle and pleasant long finish.
