Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Cuvée Brut 2007 Champagne is the pride of the House of Perrier Jouët. It marks an astonishing year of a very mild winter and an exceptional spring. The temperatures in April, worthy of a summer month, caused the vines to flower early. Although the summer got off to a rainy start with low temperatures, the sun’s return in August allowed the grapes to ripen fully, leading to an early harvest and a generous vintage. This unique blend brings out the freshness and elegance of the Chardonnay (50%) from the Grands Crus of Cramant and Avize. From the Montagne de Reims, the Pinots Noir (45%) display a generosity and delicate complexity that prolong the Chardonnays’ finesse. Finally, the rounded charm of the Pinot Meunier (5%) from Dizy provides the finishing touch to this beautifully balanced cuvée.
Light gold hues with an almost radiant clarity and finesse, are accompanied by aromas of floral magnolia, honeysuckle and citrus clothed in just-ripe pear and peach notes with a hint of minerality. Bold initial flavours are followed by a wonderfully persistent crystalline freshness leading to white fruit flavours complemented by notes of almond milk. The sophisticated character of this Champagne means it pairs well with both salty flavours of seafood or fish or subtle white meat dishes.
