Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque 2012
The iconic Belle Epoque bottle reveals a well-structured, taut wine. With Chardonnay very much in evidence in the mineral texture, the wine is almost as floral as the bottle. Drink from 2021.
Unfurling in the glass with notes of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers, freshly baked bread, honeycomb and warm biscuits, Perrier-Jouët's 2012 Brut Belle Epoque is medium to full-bodied, deep and seamless, with a rich, elegantly layered core of fruit, bright acids and an ultra-refined mousse, concluding with a long, precise finish. Fleshy and charming, this numbers among the finest recent renditions of this famous prestige cuvée.
A linear Champagne, focused by racy acidity. The fine mousse and hints of whole-grain toast and marzipan enrich the flavors of Asian pear, oyster shell and verbena to create a harmonious impression overall. Drink now through 2025. 6,500 cases imported.
