Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
 
Notes about the Vintage:
While preserving the House style, Hervé Deschamps blended this Cuvée to emphasise the unique character of the 2011 vintage. His blend brings out the freshness and elegance of the Chardonnays (50%) from the grand crus of Cramant and Avize. From the Montagne de Reims, the Pinot 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. Over six years’ ageing in Perrier-Jouët’s cellars and a low dosage (9 grams per litre) further refine the generosity and sophistication of this great vintage.

Notes from the Winemaker:
"Belle Epoque 2011 is a wonderfully harmonious vintage displaying invigorating freshness and a fine balance of smoothness and acidity – liveliness and refinement in perfect harmony." Hervé Deschamps, Cellar Master

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
“Always a light, ethereal style of wine, this is also very fresh and still young. It will age with its taut minerality from the Chardonnay in the blend. A softer background will become toasty over the next few years. The vintage date on this bottle is 200 years after the foundation of this producer. Drink from 2021.” - RV (Dec 2018)
