Technical sheet

Blend : 45% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir, 5% Meunier. The richness of the Pinot Noir is complemented by the floral elegance of the Chardonnay, which brings the characteristic finesse of the Perrier-Jouët House. The Meunier from Dizy brings roundness and aromatic notes. The light peach colour so characteristic of this cuvée is obtained thanks to a small proportion of Pinot Noir vinified in red. These red wines are produced by the maceration of the light-coloured Pinot Noir juice with its red skin.

Vinification : True to the spirit of the House, Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Rosé is an original, rare and surprising cuvee. Produced only in years when conditions are most favourable, and in small quantities, this wine is a blend of Pinot Noir from Ay, Mailly, Verzy and Rilly, and Chardonnay from the most renowned terroirs, in Cramant, Avize and Le Mesnil. Aged for a minimum of 6 years.

Dosage : 8 g/litre

Characteristics : Vintage 2012: After a mild winter, spring frosts and hail damaged the vineyards. By mid-July, summer had arrived in earnest, with dry heat and enough sunshine to bring the grapes to perfect ripeness across all the crus. The rain returned at the end of September, just as the harvest began. Although marked by difficult weather conditions, 2012 nevertheless produced promising wines. Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Rosé 2012 is a cuvée characterised by the aromatic richness and freshness of Chardonnay, balanced by the frank and lush grapes of Pinot Noir and fruity Meunier.
