Description

Producer Note

In the early 1900s, the Art Nouveau movement burst into life, drawing its inspiration from the lines and movements of nature, inviting beauty and poetry into daily life and artist and master glass maker Emile Gallé was one of the movement’s pioneers. He designed the iconic anemone wreathed in gold that was placed on the bottle of the first Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque vintage in 1964, turning it into a work of art the history of which unfurls and continues to this day. Today the Belle epoque range are still painted with his elegant Japanese anemones.

Tasting Note

Translucent gold of radiant clarity with fresh, subtle glints of green. On the nose spring-like with light, white-flower scents of hawthorn and pure blossom. The fresh aromas of white-fleshed fruit are then enveloped in candied citrus notes. In the mouth, a wonderfully vibrant wine displaying an invigorating, lively attack and expansive mouthfeel with a hint of freshness. A fine balance of delicacy and structure.

Grape/Blend

Champagne Blend (50% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir, 5% Pinot Meunier)
