Champagne Brut 'Belle Epoque' by Perrier-Jouët is maison's icon. 2013 was characterised by a cold winter and a cool, wet spring, which resulted in the vines flowering more than two weeks later than average, in the first days of July. The month of July was hot, dry and sunny, though marred by several violent thunderstorms, while August was cooler but equally sunny. Autumn brought favourable conditions up until the harvest, which began on 30 September. The grapes attained full maturity with a good balance of alcohol and acidity, resulting in a wine of finesse and character with significant potential for ageing.
Two centuries of traditions are a precious baggage, represented by a true craftsmanship savoir-faire that is passed on from generation to generation since 1811. It is precisely on this date that the spouses Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Adèle Jouët founded the Maison Perrier-Jouët , which counts today 65 hectares of vines, almost totally classified at the top of the Grand Cru scale. As a pioneer in traceability and counterfeiting, Maison Perrier-Jouët was the first winery to make the vintage of its millesimate bottles. Among the rows, careful and forward-looking choices are all about obtaining valuable and excellent grapes, and the fruits harvested in the five major cruces of what is called the "magical champagne triangle" - composed of Cramant, Avize, Mailly, Aÿ and Dizy - they are present in all those who are the cuvée of the maison. Chardonnay bouquets with generous and aromatic scents, then pinot black, fresh and delicate, and pinot meunier, generous and fruity, are worked in the cellar without looking for shortcuts, pursuing the highest quality level without ever compromising. From "Grand Brut" to "Blason Rosé", up to the millennium "Belle Epoque", producing Champagne punctually distinguished by refined, intense and sought-after style, the company offers a range of unmistakable labels, characterized by a wide aromatic persistence elegant. All this is the result of knowledge transmitted over time and in the silence of the cellars, where the chefs of caves have cultivated and increased an important know-how that, as is not enough, is often enriched and embellished by internationally renowned artists who starting in 1902, they decorate with their works the bottles that retain the most important cuvée of the maison, almost as a celebration of Champagne tasting in a kind of marriage that combines art, poetry and beauty of everyday life.
