While preserving the House style, Hervé Deschamps blended this Cuvée to emphasise the unique character of the 2011 vintage.
His blend brings out the freshness and elegance of the Chardonnays (50%) from the grand crus of Cramant and Avize. From the Montagne de Reims, the Pinot Noir (45%) display a generosity and delicate complexity that prolong the Chardonnays’ finesse. Finally, the rounded charm of the Pinot Meunier (5%) from Dizy provides the finishing touch to this beautifully balanced cuvée.
Over six years’ ageing in Perrier-Jouët’s cellars and a low dosage (9 grams per litre) further refine the generosity and sophistication of this great vintage.
The current standard available Belle Epoque online is 2012, this is a sought after bottle of the 2011 Vintage.
