Champagne Perrier-Jouët unveils new 2002 vintage of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque

Champagne Perrier-Jouët has unveiled the new 2002 vintage of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque, the first great vintage of the new millennium.

The famous ‘flower bottle’ is a marriage of the very best that the vineyards of Champagne can produce: Chardonnays from Cramant and Pinot Noirs from Mailly, with a subtle touch of Pinot Meunier that endows the wine with balance and harmony.

Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque 2002 has a superb flavour with richness, elegance and finesse; Cream and honey, brioche and lingering nutmeg notes. The champagne was aged for six years before disgorgement to maintain great balance and freshness.

Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque 2002 is available at Oliver’s, City Super, Viola and Watson’s Wine Cellar from 1 December, 2010. Suggested retail price is $1,460.
