Champagne Perrier-Jouet Blason RoseRegular price £70.00
Champagne Perrier-Jouet Blason Rose is graced with a luminous rose colour, shot through with glints of pale orange. Its fine, lively and persistent sparkle lends it an intense freshness. Pomegranates, pears, apricots, blood oranges, the fragrances of ripe red fruits... a juicy and generous blend that gives way to notes of biscuits, butter and pastries. The delicate character of white flowers remains throughout. On the palate, the Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé is an intense and balanced Champagne. Blackcurrant, pear, apricot, cherry and plum emerge first, only to give way to the fragrances of blackcurrant and blood oranges, followed by notes of crème de cassis, raspberry, honeysuckle and roses, culminating in lime, blackberries and Morello cherries.

Champagne Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé is a wine characterised by its distinctive flavour, power and roundness. Hervé Deschamps, true to the creative and craft traditions handed down by the preceding Perrier-Jouët cellar masters, executes the composition in one combined effort, with no pre-blending. Testing the vats one by one, he selects around thirty wines to make up the blend of the Blason Rosé in a constant quest for perfection and balance. He seeks ampleness and structure in this cuvée, in search of a gastronomic blend which must nevertheless retain a certain freshness. A marriage which demands the precision of a specialist in order to bring out the elegance of style that is the hallmark of Perrier-Jouët Champagne.
For the Blason Rosé, Hervé Deschamps opted for the red wines of Aÿ and Vincelles (12 to 15%), rather than the powerful Pinot Noirs of the south Montagne terroirs such as Bouzy. The Blason Rosé is thus the cuvée with the greatest proportion of Pinots, including 50% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier in its makeup. The elegance and liveliness of Chardonnay make up the remaining 25%. The dosage is 10g/l and the wine is matured for at least three years in the house cellars.
