First taste: Perrier-Joüet, Belle Epoque 2013

The new vintage of Perrier-Joüet's prestige cuvée, Belle Epoque 2013, tasted and rated by Yohan Castaing.

An important chapter in the history of the Perrier-Jouët Champagne house ended in November 2020, and a new exciting chapter began.

After 37 years of service for the house so well-known for its stylish art deco label, cellar master Hervé Deschamps retired, thus opening the door for Séverine Frerson to become only the eighth cellar master since the creation of the house in 1811.

Frerson had joined the team at Perrier-Jouët in October 2018, so was able to work alongside Deschamps for two years before her promotion.
