Tasting notes: While every vintage of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque naturally expresses the characteristics of its particular year, the personality of this iconic cuvée is clearly defined: poise, harmony and elegance combine to captivate the senses, with its bright gold colour and subtle sparkle an inviting prelude to rich nuances of white flowers and white-fleshed fruit. A long, expansive finish testifies to the rare quality of this exceptional champagne.

Perrier-Jouet is a Champagne House founded in 1811 by Pierre Perrier and his wife Adele Jouet. Over several decades, with discernment, and the exceptional vineyard was established on the Champagne best terroirs of Ay, Mailly-Champagne, Avize and Cramant. The excellence of raw materials has always been paramount, with particular attention paid to terroirs of chardonnays that give this house's wines the desired character: a floral blend, refined and subtle. Perrier-Jouet is since 1861the Champagne appointed by Queen Victoria, then by the French Imperial court. In 1959, GH Mumm, a Champagne Company acquired the Maison Perrier-Jouet.
