Perrier-Jouet Belle Epoque 2008 and 2 Flutes - Glass Pack


Limited Edition. This Pack contains 1 bottle of Perrier-Jouet Belle Epoque 2008 75cl and 2 hand painted Perrier-Jouet branded Champagne flutes.

 
Tasting Notes:

Translucent gold of radiant clarity with fresh, subtle glints of green.

 

On the nose spring-like with light, white-flower scents of hawthorn and pure blossom. The fresh aromas of white-fleshed fruit are then enveloped in candied citrus notes.

 

In the mouth, a wonderfully vibrant wine displaying an invigorating, lively attack and expansive mouthfeel with a hint of freshness. A fine balance of delicacy and structure.

 

Aged for 6 years in the cellar with a dosage of 9 grams / litre.
 

Serving:

The sophisticated, generous character of the cuvée Belle Epoque pairs wonderfully with the salty freshness of seafood, tender poultry’s subtle flavours and the purity of lightly sugared fruit desserts. Ideally served at 10-12°C, this cuvée can provide mouth-watering matches to delight the eye and palate in equal measure: Beauting by Perrier-Jouët.

 

Blending:
While preserving the House style, Hervé Deschamps blended this cuvée to emphasise the unique character of the 2008 vintage. His blend brings out the freshness and elegance of the Chardonnays (50%) from the grands crus of Cramant and Avize. From the Montagne de Reims, the Pinots Noirs (45%) display a generosity and delicate complexity that prolong the Chardonnays’ finesse. Finally, the rounded charm of the Pinots Meuniers (5%) from Dizy provides the finishing touch to this beautifully balanced cuvée. Over six years’ ageing in Perrier-Jouët’s cellars and a low dosage (9 grams per litre) further refine the generosity and sophistication of this great vintage.

 

Background Information:

For over two centuries, Maison Perrier-Jouet has continually pursued its quest for quality. 1811 is not just a legendary vintage, it is also the year that Nicolas Perrier, the son of winegrower, Adèle Jouët, the daughter of a family of wine merchants, went on to create a major champagne House. The combination of tradition, “terroir”, know-how, and a love of work created a champagne with elegance and finess.

 

Lying in the heart of the champagne region, Perrier-Jouet owns 65 hectares rating 99.2% on the quality scale (100% being the optimum). This means that each vineyard parcels is classified almost exclusively as Grand Cru.

 

The Chardonnay grape, floral and almost feminine in its elegance and finesse, is the signature variety of Perrier-Jouet’s vineyards, with a strong showing of mature vines (23 years old on average). The holdings take in a homogenous terroir of Chardonnay vineyards some 40 hectares in area within the legendary Grands Crus of Cramant and Avize. Two parcels enjoy almost mythical status - Bourrons Leroy and Bourrons du Midi.

 

From its early days, the House of Perrier-Jouet has made champagne in small quantities with a “limited edition” approach. Like master craftsmen handing down the secrets of their trade from father to son, the seven Chefs de Cave over two centuries have placed quality before quantity. 

They have also managed to conserve the House’s historical treasures in the shape of its early vintages, such as the Perrier-Jouet 1825, the oldest left in Champagne today. Hervé Deschamps, the current Cellar Master and guardian of this heritage, is a natural upholder of this creative philosophy.
