Appearance: Clear and bright. Opalescent with tinges of green and a persistent mousse. Nose: Generous, yet also delicate aromas fill the nose: lilac blossom and young white fruits such as peach and grapefruit. Hints of orange confit, vanilla and cream bring a subtle richness to the bouquet. Palate: The attack is fresh, racy and enticing. In the mouth it is delicate yet dynamic, with beautiful length that seduces the palate. Food Pairing: As an aperitif the purity of Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Blanc de Blancs 2004 is utterly seamless. But it can also bring enthralling pleasure when paired with caviar, scallops or lobster.

Wine EnthusiastNow at its peak, this impressive wine has moved from fruit to maturity, adding toastiness to its acidity and giving the wine richness. It's full and ripe while keeping the taut, steely edge proper to a Chardonnay Champagne. There's no need to age further. Drink now.

Wine SpectatorPeach yogurt and pastry dough notes lead to flavors of glazed apricot and toasted hazelnut in this rich and creamy blanc de blancs, while sleek, citrusy acidity drives the lingering finish of smoky mineral and spice tones. Drink now through 2027.
