Perrier-Jouet Belle Epoque Rose 2007 in Wood Box (3L Jeroboam)
Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé 2007 is an exceptional cuvée from the House prestige collection. 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.
On the eye: A robe of pale Rosé with hints of orange and a very lively mousse.
On the nose: Rounded yet delicate aromas of red fruits (red currants, raspberries and pomegranate) combine with blood orange and grapefruit. This is followed by hints of nuts, brioche, honey and caramel.
On the palate: The attack is lively and fresh, yet rounded. The palate is intense, generous and powerful, yet delicate, with purity of fruit, great finesse and a long, lingering finish.
