Perrier-Jouët : Belle Epoque GreenBox + 2 Champagne flutes 2013
- Guaranteed provenanceWines sourced directly from the producing estates
An elegant and sustainable box set containing a complex and fresh vintage champagne
The Perrier-Jouët Champagne House was founded by Pierre Perrier and his wife Adèle Jouët in 1811. Produced from exceptional Champagne terroirs (Aÿ, Mailly-Champagne, Avize and Cramant), the house's wines are renowned for their unique style which combines aromatic richness, refinement and finesse. From 1861, Perrier-Jouët became Queen Victoria’s official champagne, then that of the French Imperial Court.
Owned by the Champagne Company, GH Mumm, since 1959, Perrier-Jouët's uniqueness lies in its iconic cuvée's prestigious "Belle Epoque" bottle, designed by Emile Gallé in 1969.
An iconic champagne, Belle Époque by Perrier-Jouët is the first wine to be decorated with a white Japanese anemone, a design created in 1902 by Émile Gallé, an Art Nouveau master.
Less than 30 vintages have been produced to date, making it extremely rare. This exceptional champagne comprises grapes from the finest terroirs in Champagne (Montagne de Reims, Cramant, Avize, Dizy).
Working closely with nature since its creation, the Perrier-Jouët Champagne House is driven by the vision of a sustainable future regarding both its vineyards and the development of sustainable packaging designs. Thus, this Belle Epoque GreenBox 2 Flutes by Perrier-Jouët is a sustainable box set made from scraps of wood that stem from the FSC-certified French forests. This elegant case contains a bottle of Perrier-Jouët's Belle Époque 2013 and two flutes, both adorned with the Japanese white anemone.
A cold winter preceded a spring whose coolness and humidity delayed the flowering period. Hot, dry and sunny, July was punctuated by severe storms. The mild autumnal conditions were ideal and helped to refine the grape’s ripeness levels until the harvest. Showcasing a perfect balance between sugar and acidity, the grapes harvested at optimal ripeness resulted in a champagne that harmoniously combines delicacy and character with an exceptional ageing potential.
Pinot Noir (45%)
