Champagne Perrier-Jou ët has launched its 1999 vintage of Belle Epoque, which will be available in top-end outlets, specialist independents and prestige department stores.

Cellar master Hervé Deschamps says that 1999 was one of a run of exceptional years with near-perfect conditions in early September. It ended up as a blend of 49 per cent Chardonnay from Cramant, Avize, Chouill y and Le Mesnil sur Oger; 46 per cent Pinot Noir from Bouzy, Mailly, Verzy and Aÿ, and 5 per cent Pinot Meunier from Dizy, Hautvillers and Venteuil.
