Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque Champagne 2008
Founded in Epernay in 1811, Perrier-Jouet owns 108 hectares of vineyards located in the heart of the Champagne region. Their famous flagship Champagne the Cuvee Belle Epoque (known as Fleur de Champagne in USA) was created in 1964 after Pierre Ernst discovered an original Emile Galle bottle made in the Art Nouveau style in 1902. A master glass-maker reproduced the raised enamel decoration in order to create a celebration of the spirit of this imaginative and decadent age. In 1990, the Perrier-Jouet's 18th Century family house on the Avenue de Champagne became the Maison Belle Epoque, housing the world's leading collection of original Art Nouveau works.
Rich bouquet and flavour with honey and lemon combined with notes of white flowers and fresh fruits through to an elegant, floral finish.
