Belle Epoque Rosé 2006
Delicate, rich & voluptuous.
An exceptional cuvee from the prestige collection of Perrier-Jouët.
Crafted only in remarkable vintages, this wine is the result of a year of nature’s generosity.
Spring was blighted by late frosts, in summer the weather turned much hotter punctuated by a few storms, enabling flowering to take place successfully. The nature finally brought perfect weather in September to enable the grapes to fully ripen in time for the harvest.
With grapes sourced from the best terroirs in Cramant, Avize and Le Mesnil, the Chardonnays (50%) bring elegance and floral freshness to the blend. Generous and rounded, the 2006 vintage combines the elegance of the Chardonnay with the richness of the Pinot Noirs (45%) from Mailly, Aÿ, Verzy and Rilly; and the rounded aromas of red fruits from the Pinot Meuniers from Dizy (5%). Finally, Pinot Noir red wines (11%) from Vertus and Vincelles give the cuvée its subtle and pure Rosé hue.
This assemblage has developed into a delicate, yet intense, rich and voluptuous wine; this is a cuvée that provokes thoughtful contemplation to appreciate each nuance.
