Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque 2002 & The Art of Vintage 75cl / 12.5%
This bottle was kindly donated anonymously for The Cream Of The Crop Charity Auction in aid of The Drinks Trust to support drinks industry employees.
A bottle of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque 2002 Champagne and a numbered limited edition book, ‘The Art of Vintage – An aesthetic odyssey through 20 vintage Perrier-Jouët Champagnes’ by Serena Sutcliffe with Photography by Makiko Takeham. (Only 150 published.)
From the excellent 2002 vintage and scoring 94/100 from the Wine Spectator, the 2002 Brut Belle Epoque is a striking Champagne endowed with considerable power and richness in its exuberant fruit. The wine blossoms on the palate with tons of richness and a broad, expansive voice to the fruit that is quite beautiful. A long, creamy finish layered with tropical fruit rounds things out nicely.
The bottle is accompanied by a limited numbered edition of “The Art of Vintage: An aesthetic odyssey through 20 vintage Perrier-Jouët champagnes” hardcover. Art of Vintage is a lavish and sumptuous book, printed on high-quality paper with 456 pages on one of the most famous champagne houses in the world, well known for its Cuvee Belle Epoque and its distinctive bottle. The book is a fascinating insight into the mystique, the art and the history surrounding twenty legendary vintage champagnes produced by Perrier-Jouët champagne.
