What to expect


The colour, is a robe of pure salmon pink and the nose reveals complex yet elegant aromas of strawberries, citrus fruits, sour cherry and orange with hints of cream and spice. Leading on to the palate, the wine is generous and ample. The approach is fresh, awakening the senses with hints of orange confit, white peach and cocoa, leading to a rich, rounded finish.

Hervé Deschamps has hand-crafted this wine to achieve the perfect balance between the unique characteristics of the 2005 vintage and the consistency of the Perrier-Jouët house style. With grapes sourced from the best vineyards in Cramant, Avize and Le Mesnil the Chardonnays (45%) bring elegance and freshness to the blend.

Generous and rounded, the 2005 vintage combines the elegance of the Chardonnay with the richness of the Pinot Noirs (50%) from Mailly, Aÿ, Verzy and Rilly; and the rounded aromas of red fruits from the Pinot Meuniers from Dizy (5%).

Finally, Pinot Noir red wines (11%) from Vertus and Vincelles give the cuvée its subtle and pure Rosé hue. With six years ageing in the cellars and a dosage of 8 grams per litre this assemblage has developed an aromatic richness that is both harmonious and persistent.

About the house

About the house

Perrier-Jouët was founded in 1811 by Pierre-Nicolas-Marie Perrier, who added the maiden name of his wife, Adele Jouët, to create the house. Established in the heart of Épernay, Perrier-Jouët quickly began to build an international following from its success in exporting to foreign markets. Early entry to the UK (1815) meant that by 1847 exports represented nearly ninety per cent of House sales. This European success allowed the family to increase their vineyard holdings, hand-picking land in the grand cru villages of Aÿ, Avize, Cramant, Mailly. When replanting vines they focused on chardonnay, bringing the lightness to the Perrier-Jouët wines which is still a characteristic of the wines today. The Maison Belle Epoque in Epernay is the private chateau of the Perrier-Jouët family and houses one of the world’s foremost collections of Art Nouveau masterpieces. A dedicated global campaign to reunite pieces from the Belle Epoque era saw the creation of one of the world’s genuinely unique properties: a living testimony to the era, featuring works from such great Art Nouveau protagonists as Rodin, Toulouse-Lautrec, Lalique, Majorelle and Hector Guimard, creator of the famed Paris Metro iconography. It is home to many original works by Emile Gallé, friend of the House and designer of the original Belle Epoque Anemone bottle in 1902.
