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.
A perfect expression of the House's style and the fruit of the most harmonious blend, Perrier-Jouët's Belle Époque Rosé is made from emblematic Champagne crus (Cramant, Avize, Chouilly, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Vertus and Mailly).
The bottle of Perrier-Jouët's Belle Époque Rosé 2013 is adorned with a white Japanese anemone, a design created in 1902 by Émile Gallé, an Art Nouveau master.
In 2022, Perrier-Jouët commissioned two Austrian designers, Katharina Mischer and Thomas Traxler, to celebrate the 120th anniversary of this emblematic design. This collaboration resulted in a limited-edition box showcasing a layering of 70 different species that thrive in the Champagne vineyards, revealing an elegant and creative metamorphosis of this iconic design.
Vinification and ageing
A small proportion of Pinot Noir is vinified in red by macerating the clear juice with its skins. This vintage champagne is aged for a minimum of 6 years in the chalky cellars of the house.
The brilliant reveals a subtle salmon hue, adorned with luminous orange reflections.
The nose exudes fruity fragrances (strawberry, white currant) but also notes of peony and kumquat.
The persistent and expressive palate blends aromas of pink grapefruit and tangerine with flavoursome brioche notes.
Food and wine pairing
Lobster, coral lentils and figs will all complement Belle Epoque Rosé Limited Edition 120 Years 2013 by Perrier-Jouët.
