PERRIER JOUET Champagne Brut "Belle Epoque" Rose 2012
Wine Region: Champagne - France
Grape: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier
Tasting notes: The Champagne has a pale apricot colour shot through with bright glints, and alive with fine and constant bubbles. We have a pronounced, fragrant aroma of white flowers and wild strawberry. On the palate, we found a wonderfully fresh and lively wine with a long, lingering finish.
About the Winery: Perrier-Jouet is a Champagne House founded in 1811 by Pierre Perrier and his wife Adele Jouet. Over several decades, with discernment, and the exceptional vineyard was established on the Champagne best terroirs of Ay, Mailly-Champagne, Avize and Cramant. The excellence of raw materials has always been paramount, with particular attention paid to terroirs of chardonnays that give this house's wines the desired character: a floral blend, refined and subtle. Perrier-Jouet is since 1861the Champagne appointed by Queen Victoria, then by the French Imperial court. In 1959, GH Mumm, a Champagne Company acquired the Maison Perrier-Jouet. The prestige Cuvee "Belle Epoque" and its bottle designed by Emile Galle was launched in 1969 and marks a historic turning point for the brand.
