The icon in the Perrier-Jouët range, a prestige cuvée with trademark charm and elegance - Belle Epoque is a beautifully delicate and stylish wine. Characterised by the House’s signature Grand Cru Chardonnay, the Pinot Noir full fruit notes and a subtle touch of Pinot Meunier endow the wine with balance and harmony.

The first great vintage champagne of 21st Century. Truly the epitome of charm and elegance, reflecting the Chardonnays of Cramant and Pinot Noirs of Mailly.

Tasting Notes

White flowers with white & yellow fruit on the nose, sustained by a little vanilla on the palate. Beautifully balanced and rounded, with a long, elegant finish.

Food Pairing

Possesses the refinement of a delicious aperitif, yet the character to pair with foie gras or turbot in butter sauce.
