Something about Perrier Jouet
Perrier-Jouët is a Champagne House founded in 1811 by Pierre Perrier and his wife Adèle Jouët. Over several decades, with discernment, and exceptional vineyard was established on the Champagne best terroirs of Ay, Mailly-Champagne, Avize and Cramant. The excellence of raw materials has always been paramount, with particular attention paid to terroirs of chardonnays that give this house’s wines the desired character: a floral blend, refined and subtle. Perrier-Jouët is since 1861 the Champagne appointed by Queen Victoria, then by the French imperial court. In 1959, GH Mumm, a Champagne Company acquired the Maison Perrier-Jouët. The prestige cuvée “Belle Epoque” and its bottle designed by Emile Gallé was launched in 1969 and marks a historic turning point for the brand.

The 2006 Brut Blanc de Blancs Belle Epoque unfurls in the glass with aromas of warm biscuits, nougat, confit lemons and dried white flowers. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, broad and charming, with a delicately textural attack, a bright but open-knit core, pinpoint bubbles and a rounded, giving finish. Expect more biscuity complexity to emerge with bottle age.
Rich, nuanced and dense on the nose. Tasting this alongside Moët 2006, it is clear that this is much more ambitious. Good balance and lots of fresh acidity but a savoury undertow. Attractively dry finish. Not the tightest texture and surprisingly evolved for a 2006 but useful for drinking now.
