Perrier-Jouet Belle Epoque Rose 2012

Mix 12
Mix 6
Per Bottle
Description & Technical Information
Perrier-Jouët own twenty-seven hectares of Grand Cru plots in the Chardonnay-dominant village of Cramant. The two that are most precious to the House are Bourons Leroy and Bourons du Midi, as both plots contain rare pockets of pure chalk soil. The prestige cuvée, Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs, is a unique blend of grapes from both of these very rare vineyards: an exclusive champagne that represents just one percent of the total Belle Epoque production.

In 1902, Emile Gallé designed a unique new bottle to express the vibrancy and spirit of the era. A swirl of Japanese anemones wreathed in gold was painted onto four custom-made magnums. However, this was too expensive for mass production and only became a permanent feature on the bottles from 1969 when the first Belle Epoque cuvée was released.

Weather: The 2012 weather has been hallmarked by many as very challenging but has created some stunning Champagne. Relatively low yields due to various weather conditions throughout the year. The winter months brought some frosts and hail which damaged the early stages of bud burst. August and September were very warm and this helped rescue and give the grapes a stunning maturity.

Tasting Note: Nicely integrated fruit and an overall impression of gentle softness. Very charming even if not amazingly persistent. Tasted by Jancis Robinson MW
Champagne Perrier-Jouet Overview
Expert Reviews
Jancis Robinson MW
“45% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir, 5% Pinot Meunier with Chardonnay from Cramant, Avize and Le Mesnil; Pinot Noir from Aÿ, Mailly, Verzy and Rilly; Pinot Meunier from Dizy. Fermented in tank with malo before blending, which included 11% still Pinot Noir, before bottling under crown cap. After six years ageing on the lees it was disgorged in April 2019 with a dosage of 8 g/l. In the famous transparent bottle with the art nouveau flower embossed on it – though it comes swathed in light-resistant gold paper.
Yes another very pale salmon-pink wine. Has the provençal mode swept through Champagne? Nicely integrated fruit and an overall impression of gentle softness. Very charming even if not amazingly persistent. The only fault of this wine is its price. But that bottle would sweep anyone off their feet… More developed and much more floral (autosuggestion?) than the Bollinger, Grande Année 2012. A gentle caress of a champagne.
