Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé champagne is the House’s deliciously unexpected interpretation of the genre. A rare and precious vintage rosé champagne whose demure, pale apricot hue belies its extravagantly sensual personality, which is characterised by alluring notes of white flowers and small red fruit.
The winter of 2010 was relentless, and was followed by a hot spring and summer. August brought abundant rainfall, and more rain during the harvest undermined the quality of the grapes. Maison Perrier-Jouët undertook a rigorous selection and devoted the best of the harvest to Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé, a cuvée whose style was favoured by the conditions, and the only one for which it declared a vintage. Characterised by remarkable vinosity, this is thus a particularly rare cuvée from one of the few champagne houses to produce a 2010 vintage.
