A harmonious and elegant variation on the Perrier-Jouët style. A multi-sensorial wine, made up of delicate and complex harmonies: a perfect balance between the character of the generous year that was 2004 and the House style. 2004 is a year that nature proved to be generous. Frost in the winter and spring left the vines sun kissed. September’s semi-heat wave brought the fruit to optimal maturity and by the month’s end; the grapes had achieved a fine balance of sugar and acidity.
Belle Epoque Rosé 2004 represents a blend dominated by the Chardonnays of the Cramant and Avize Grand Crus. The Pinot Noir Grand Crus are from Mailly and Verzy, and are rich and powerful with red-fruit notes. A wine that has been carefully crafted, Belle Epoque Rosé owes its subtle style to the carefully selected still red wines (just 9% of the blend) that give a rosé shade without dominating the palate. Great care and expertise have been used to preserve Perrier- Jouët’s elegant style despite the power of the red wines.
The Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé 2004 cuvée boasts an expert balance of floral and fruity notes, which will be unveiled to perfection by contrasting flavors. Its refinement will be perfectly expressed with shellfish, such as lobster tails sautéed with seaweed butter, accompanied by raw chicory leaves and wakame with green apples. As a dessert, the sweetness of panna cotta lifted by the acidity of a blood orange and pink grapefruit jelly and accompanied by a crunchy meringue will sublimely echo the multi-sensorial experience evoked by this cuvée.
Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé 2004 has a Wine Enthusiast score of 94. (Wine Enthusiast Dec. 2011)
