Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé 2012
The winter of 2012 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. In response, the 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, making it a particularly rare cuvée from one of the few champagne houses to produce a 2010 vintage.
AN UNCONVENTIONAL ROSÉ
True to the free, bohemian, spirit of Maison Perrier-Jouët; Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé is a resolutely original champagne which combines rarity with the ability to surprise. Crafted only in exceptional years and produced in limited quantities, it typically blends Pinot Noir from Ay, Mailly, Verzy and Rilly with Chardonnay from the finest terroirs in Cramant, Avize and Le Mesnil.
Whether you choose to enjoy this fine Champagne today or in the future, it will always preserve its unmistakable character and finesse.
