In 1902, Emile Gallé designed a delicate spray of anemones to be engraved on the prestigious cuvées of Perrier-Jouët Champagnes. The House has remained loyal to this artistic heritage ever since. The same tradition gave rise to Beauting: a vision of gastronomy which embraces Beauty and Good Food, turning each dish into a work of art, in perfect harmony with each cuvée. A unique sensory experience and a feast for the eye and the palate alike.

The allure, voluptuousness and vitality of the Cuvée Belle Epoque Edition Automne 2005 complement each course of a meal: the salty tang of fresh fish or caviar, the refined flavours of Japanese beef or tuna cooked over a low heat and served with Mediterranean vegetables, or the crisp subtlety of citrus-fruit zabaglione or yuzu tart – pairings to celebrate a dish as much a feast for the eyes as for the palate. Belle Epoque Edition Automne can be served between 10° and 12°C.

The Story

With all the elegance of the Perrier-Jouët style, Hervé Deschamps has created an ideal blend where autumn’s mellowness and power bloom in a remarkable shade of pure, deep pink.

Autumn is the season of stark contrasts, of fleeting flares, beguiling mildness and dazzling delights. The second of Perrier-Jouët’s seasonal cuvées, this limited edition is the fruit of the 2005 vintage, a year whose contrasts echo those of autumn itself: a harsh winter, a warm spring followed by a curious, cool summer and a sunny autumn. This vintage, astonishing and harmonious in equal measure, is to be enjoyed during autumn’s glow.

The house’s signature grape, Chardonnay (45%), from the Grand Cru vineyards at Cramant, Avize and Le Mesnil brings its own delicately floral freshness. A dash of Pinot Meunier (5%) from Dizy provides sensual seasoning for such engaging vitality. Finally, the energy of Pinot Noir grapes (50%) grown around the villages of Mailly, Aÿ, Verzy and Rilly adds a luscious touch to this smooth symmetry. A proportion of 15% red wine lends this ephemeral cuvée its unusual, captivating colour.

Wine Information

Radiant in its allure, the wine’s colour reveals the vitality of a deep pink. A fine ribbon of bubbles crowns its orange and copper shades, interspersed with flashes of garnet.

NOSE

The rich, generous bouquet comprises aromas of pomegranate, redcurrant, persimmon and citrus, such as blood orange and pink grapefruit, wrapped in rose scent and punctuated by honeyed notes.

PALATE

Full-bodied and alluring, the attack is voluptuous with a touch of fresh acidity. This pleasing harmony stimulates the taste buds without overwhelming them, displaying a vibrant mellowness, elegant length and appealing acidity in the finish.

Vintage 2005

 The 2005 vintage was a year of marked contrasts between seasons and regions. Following a fairly harsh winter, 2005 had a mild spring with relatively warm temperatures all year long. There was above average sunshine and a slight water deficit, as had been the case throughout the dry cycle of 2005/2004 and 2003. The heat and humidity in July produced larger grapes and bunches, rather unusually for the Champagne region, while the cooler weather in August, followed by a very sunny month of September, led to favourable ripening in spite of heavy parasite pressure. The harvest dates were “typical” of those of the decade: September 12th for Chardonnays and the following day for Pinots Noirs.

“The richness of the 2005 vintage inspired me to create this cuvée in tribute to autumn’s allure and vitality as a way of savouring the beauty of an ephemeral season.”
