Perrier Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé 2006 Vintage Champagne has the acidity of citrus fruits, the sweetness of flowers a unique style and manifold sensations. A floral signature, a refined and fruited bouquet of peony and Rosé. Subtle berry notes of wild strawberries and raspberries. The power of the fruity and delicate notes of the pinot noir from the Montagne de Reims terroir account for 50% of the composition, while the Dizy pinot meunier wine (5%) lends the fragrance of mature red fruits, coupled with roundness and balance. 

In the early 1900s, the Art Nouveau movement burst into life, drawing its inspiration from the lines and movements of nature, inviting beauty and poetry into daily life and artist and master glass maker Emile Gallé was one of the movement's pioneers. He designed the iconic anemone wreathed in gold that was placed on the bottle of the first Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque vintage in 1964, turning it into a work of art the history of which unfurls and continues to this day. Today the Belle epoque range are still painted with his elegant Japanese anemones.

The Belle Epoque Rosé 2006 is an exceptional cuvée 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 April that decimated many Crus across the region, but luckily Perrier-Jouët's vineyards escaped unscathed. In June the weather turned much hotter, enabling flowering to take place successfully during the last two weeks of the month. The whole region based in a heatwave in July, punctuated by a few violent storms, before the weather turned cooler and wetter in August. But luckily nature was kind and September brought perfect weather to enable the grapes to fully ripen in time for the harvest.

Hervé Deschamps has hand-crafted this wine to achieve the perfect balance between the generous characteristics of the 2006 vintage and the consistency of the Perrier-Jouët house style. 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. With six years ageing in the cellars and a dosage of 8 grams per litre 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

A perfect balance between the generous characteristics of the 2006 vintage and the consistency of the Perrier-Jouët house style.

This intriguing cuvée can be served between 10° and 12°C, either as an aperitif or with food. It matches beautifully with flavours ranging from game birds such as goose or pigeon to desserts such as fruit charlotte, or red berry pavlova
