In true artisan style, Herve Deschamps fashioned the cuvee as he would compose a spring bouquet. Sensitive to the first hours of spring and particularly to the delicate scents of the Maison Belle Epoque garden, the Perrier-Jouet historical residence, he has created a rare and elegant vintage, with a fruit-accented great freshness giving delicate attention to the Chardonnay, Perrier-Jouet’s grape of choice. Belle Epoque Edition Premiere is blended from Chardonnay Grands Crus selected for their elegance, freshness and vivacity; to which a small percentage of Pinot Noir is added, giving this vintage wine a pale pink hue with shades of peach. This limited edition spring cuvee is the perfect marriage of the good and the beautiful. It will prove to be the muse of every garden party and the ideal companion to light and delicate dishes.
