Perrier Jouet - Champagne Collection - Belle Epoque Rosé 2004 - Characteristics

Characteristics

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.

Appearance:

The Belle Epoque Rosé 2004 is graced with a luminous rose robe with hints of orange, complemented with a touch of yellow. Long-lasting bubbles.

Nose:

Both delicate and complex, the Belle Epoque Rosé 2004 masterfully blends the aromas of flowers and fruits. The fragrance of peonies gives way to notes of fresh red fruits (raspberries and strawberries), citrus (oranges and pink grapefruit), and finally pomegranate.

Palate:

A fresh and refined sensation, with notes of fresh pomegranate and pink grapefruit. Round, supple and harmonious, the Belle Epoque Rosé 2004 develops a silky long finish in the mouth.

Delicious with desserts that combine the fondant with the crunchy, its flavours will express themselves consummately if served between 10 and 12° (the temperature can also be slightly higher if accompanying a meal). If conditions allow, you may keep your Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé 2004 for over ten years.

Expert opinions

A gentle caress of flavour… a smoky finish

"A gentle caress of flavour, this wine’s wild fruit character seems to last for minutes…" Wine and Spirits Magazine, December 2011.

"Delicate acidity and subtle flavours of black cherry, plum, black liquorice and spice are matched with the fine texture and creamy minerality of this elegant rose, which has a smoky finish. Drink now through 2020." Wine Spectator, December 2011

Beauting: Food pairing
by Perrier-Jouët

The refinement is in the contrast

A multi-sensorial wine. Its refinement and balance will marvellously complement not only shellfish but also contrasting desserts.

In 1902, Emile Gallé designed a delicate spray of anemones to be engraved on the prestigious cuvées of Perrier-Jouët Champagnes. The House has remained loyal to this artistic heritage ever since. The same tradition gave rise to Beauting: a vision of gastronomy which embraces Beauty and Good Food, turning each dish into a work of art, in perfect harmony with each cuvée. A unique sensory experience and a feast for the eye and the palate alike.

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 flavours. 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.

Wine making notes

A multi-sensorial experience, imbued with elegance, in the purest Perrier-Jouët style

A fine balance between the character of the year and the floral, stylish, diamond-cut style that is the hallmark of Perrier-Jouët, the Belle Epoque Rosé 2004 is crafted in the purest traditions of the House.

The bottle with the iconic anemone, designed in 1902 by Emile Gallé, one of the leading figures of the Art Nouveau movement, expresses the floral elegance which characterises the Belle Epoque Rosé cuvée. It reveals the wine's delicate colour as if in homage to the outstanding Perrier-Jouët vineyards, ranked at 99.2% on the scale of qualitative wines.

Floral, stylish and diamond-cut, the Belle Epoque Rosé 2004 was crafted by Hervé Deschamps, the 7th Cellar Master at Perrier-Jouët, following a tradition that stretches back over 200 years. As with the Belle Epoque cuvée, the wines are selected vat by vat and developed one by one. The composition is carried out with the greatest precision, thus ensuring that the nuances of each individual wine are fully savoured.

The 2004 vintage was as generous as nature itself. The winter frosts left the vineyards intact, and a cool June prolonged the flowering season, while an Indian summer blessed the fruits with optimal maturity. The grapes finally achieved a perfect balance between sweetness and sharpness. The quality of the must seemed to herald a grand cru – a promise that was amply kept. In order to achieve this harmonious balance between the generosity of the year and the Perrier-Jouët style, Hervé Deschamps uses the Cramant and Avize grands crus, drawing on the elegance and minerality of their Chardonnays. They make up 45% of the composition.

The power of the fruity and delicate notes of the pinot noir from the Montagne de Reims terroir account for 50% of the composition, while the Dizy pinot meunier wine (5%) lends the fragrance of mature red fruits, coupled with roundness and balance. Hervé Deschamps selected grapes of particular redness in order to be able to reduce their proportion in the composition. The chardonnays thus reveal the fullness of their elegance and finesse.

"A unique style, a multi-sensorial wine." Hervé Deschamps, Cellar Master.

Dosage: 8g/l - Matured for at least six years in the House cellars.
