Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque Rose 2005 Champagne Autumn Edition 75cl Gift Boxed 12% ABV
Described as the most extravagant and graceful Perrier-Jouët wine of the Belle Epoque Collection by Cellar Master Hervé Deschamps who wanted to pay tribute to the beauty of Autumn. This Champagne combines Autumn’s engaging and voluptuous qualities with its vitality and subtle harmony, a wine that conveys every single facet of a season as diverse as it is mesmerising.
The pink tone of the champagne is something that captures your attention instantly along with the various notes of berries, orange, sour cherry, spice and cream on the nose, however the sharp bite of the after-taste might just be the most memorable element. In the mouth, generous and voluptuous. The attack is fresh, awakening the senses with hints of orange confit, white peach and cocoa, leading to a rich, rounded finish.
A magical cuvee that is part of Perrier-Jouët’s history: the Blason wines remain in the portfolio at the gentle insistence of their gourmet devotees. Hervé Deschamps has a particular fondness for autumn and observed: “in autumn the vineyards in Champagne create an enchanting patchwork of colours that vary depending on the variety of grape. The rows of Chardonnay have a golden-yellow glow, while those of Pinot are fiery and dark red. Autumn is also a season of aromas with the morning mist bringing out scents of humus, while as the sun rises, the scents of the grape bunches and their juice emerge. Autumn is above all the season when the fruit ripens fully to allow for the long-awaited harvest to begin.”
