Perrier-Jouet Belle Epoque Gift Set 2007
A perfect balance between the crystalline characteristics of the 2007 vintage and the consistency of the Perrier-Jouet House style. It pairs wonderfully with the salty freshness of seafood, the subtle flavor of tender poultry, or and the pure sweetness of lightly sugared fruit desserts. This Perrier-Jouet Belle Epoque set includes one 2007 Vintage and 2 historical Belle Epoque flutes. Perrier-Jouet was founded in 1811 in Epernay by Pierre-Nicolas-Marie Perrier and his wife, Adele Jouet. One of the most prestigious houses in Champagne, the firm was shipping wine to Great Britain by 1813 and to the United States by 1837. Perrier-Jouet owns 266 acres of vineyards in Champagne, with an average rating of 95%, and is known worldwide for its consistency of style. By the end of the 19th Century, its Brut cuvees earned the reputation of nobility and prestige that continues today. Perrier Jouet's glamorous "Cuvee Belle Epoque", known in the United States as Fleur de Champagne, was launched in 1969 and has become the most important cuvee de prestige to appear after World War II. The bottle is adorned with enamel-painted anenomes originally created by Emile Galle in 1900, but the wine is as famous for its taste as it is for its beautiful packaging.
