Perrier Jouët Blason Rosé Champagne
Blason Rosé is the first Rosé champagne created by Perrier-Jouët. Its name derives from the ‘Blason de France’ range, created by the House in 1956. Blason Rosé is a subtle blend of 50 different vins clairs from the best parcels of the House’s vineyards.
Built on the model of the Grand Brut Non Vintage, which is driven by the intensity of the Chardonnays in the blend, Blason Rosé is enriched by the addition of red wines.
The elegance and finesse of the Chardonnays (25%), blend with the structure of the Pinot Noirs (50% including the added red wines) and the fruitiness of Pinot Meunier (25%) – a grape with which Perrier-Jouët has acquired specific expertise.
The cuvée ages for a minimum of three years in the cellars before a light dosage of 8 to 11 grams per litre is added depending on the year.
An addition of 12 to 15% of reserve wines creates the consistency required to balance the Perrier-Jouët style with the climatic effects of the year.
Fulfilling the promise of its alluring appearance, Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé unleashes intense aromas of ripe red and black fruit – strawberry, raspberry and blackberry – complemented by a hint of exotic pomegranate. Lush and lively on the palate, it lingers into a full, generous finish.
