Perfectly timed to mark the start of spring, Perrier-Jouët has launched the 2007 vintage of its prestige cuvée Belle Epoque.
Described by cellar master Hervé Deschamps as “a crystalline vintage whose subtlety and generosity highlight the precision of the Perrier-Jouët style,” according to brand owner Pernod Ricard, the fizz offers “lightness and luminosity” alongside “delicate freshness and elegance”. Viewed by Deschamps as the ultimate expression of the house, hallmarked by the quality of its Côte des Blancs Chardonnay, which imbues the wine with floral notes, the 2007 vintage is a blend of 50% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noirs from Mailly, Verzy and Aÿ, and 5% Pinot Meunier from Dizy.
Aged in the P-J cellars for six years before being disgorged, the wine, bearing Emile Gallé’s famous anemone flower design, is on sale at Harvey Nichols.
