2012 Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs - Champagne
St Barth’s Wine
Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs is the quintessence of Chardonnay with the brilliance and rarity of a yellow diamond. 2006 was a good year in Champagne, with a near-perfect growing season. July witnessed a heatwave across the region, followed by fresher weather and welcome rains in August, allowing the grapes to rest before the Indian summer took them to perfect maturity.
By harvest, the Chardonnay grapes of Bouron Leroi and Bouron du Midi had attained the ideal balance between sugar, acidity and pure floral aromas. The year’s conditions were particularly favorable to Chardonnay, with the ripeness of the grapes, combined with aromatic richness and vinosity, resulting in a wine of exceptional finesse and generosity.
Bright, shimmering gold with subtle glints of green. Exceptionally fine bubbles.
Pure, intense aromas of white flowers – acacia, hawthorn, lilac and elderberry – complemented by subtle overtones of honey, poached pear, pineapple and candied lemon. Hints of vanilla, hazelnut milk and brioche.
A delicious crispness in the mouth, fresh yet never aggressive. The wine is full and rich, with a long, silken, elegant finish.
