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 2002 vintage shaped up magnificently over the spring, with no significant frost and near-perfect flowering. Then followed a summer marked by long, sunny periods interspersed with regular cloudy and rainy spells. The vines were in good health and the dehydration of the grape berries helped them reach new heights of ripeness. Generally considered one of the best harvests in the last twenty years.

News Article: Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs 2002 performed well in our comprehensive Prestige Cuvées from 2002 blind tasting in October 2016 with Jancis Robinson MW. Read the full write-up here.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru | Cramant: Bourons Leroy, Bourons du Midi
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Ageing: 8 years on the lees

Tasting Note: A perfect growing season in 2002 created grapes of incredible ripeness. This rare champagne is a pale yellow colour with a stream of fine bubbles. On the nose: hints of lemon and citrus. On the palate: a freshness of tropical fruits and hints of fresh ginger. A tremendous expression of the best vintage in champagne.
