You can never say no to a glass of champagne by Perrier Jouet, especially when it is the limited edition Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Edition Automne 2005. Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of this vintage before because the exclusive cuvée was just recently unveiled, just in time to usher in the season of fall that also serves as the inspiration behind the champagne.

This is hardly the first time that the brand has used nature as an inspiration, which is unsurprising given that champagne is, you know, a product of nature. The new cuvée, which we’ve been teasing since the SINGAPORE RENDEZVOUS previews, is a follow up to the Belle Epoque Edition 2007 that was released for spring.

The man behind the champagne, Chef de Caves of Perrier-Jouët, Hervé Deschamps was so mesmerized by fall that he crafted a creation that reflects the season’s shades perfectly. It also happens that autumn 2005 played a vital role in the final flavor of the Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Edition Automne 2005. The pink tone of the champagne is something that captures your attention in an instant but when you experience it, the sharp bite of the after-taste might just be the most memorable element.

“The richness of the 2005 vintage inspired me to create this cuvée in tribute to autumn’s allure and vitality as a way of savoring the beauty of an ephemeral season” said Hervé Deschamps. Blending Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier the champagne offers notes of various berries, orange, sour cherry, spice and cream on the nose.

Reflecting the season that has inspired the special cuvée, Perrier-Jouët presents the champagne in a bottle that features a swirl of pink anemones. Designed by Emile Gallé in 1902, the flowers featured on the bottle are a link to the brand’s love of Japan. The result of this affection for Japanese autumn, is the presentation of “A Haiku for Every Season” by Perrier-Jouët.

Visit us and Perrier-Jouët at the SINGAPORE RENDEZVOUS from today to Sunday for your own taste of the Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Edition Automne 2005.
