NV Blason Rosé Brut, Perrier Jouët
Sparkling & Champagne
99 in stock
Tasting Note: An elegant pink fizz, delivering a noseful of raspberries, wild strawberries and rose petals followed by a mouthful of crunchy red fruit and citrus.
Food Matching: Blason Rosé is a cuvée with a distinguished character and pairs well with a wide range of foods. It makes for a perfect apéritif served with fresh shellfish or smoked salmon. The predominance of Pinot Noir in the cuveé also gives the Blason Rosé enough intensity to match richer dishes such as roasted salmon and game. Try the Blason Rosé with finely sliced roasted pheasant breast, pan-fried venison filets with fresh truffles, or wild pork in red wine served with forest mushrooms and an apple/cranberry sauce.
Vineyard: A blend of fifty different Crus, Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut expresses the quality and diversity of the House winemaking tradition. Preimum fruit is sourced from Côte des Blancs, Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne, but also from the best Crus in the Aube region such as Les Riceys.
Vinification: Blason Rosé has always been made from the strictest selection of the finest possible base wines. Pinot Noir from grand cru vineyards in Aÿ, Mailly and Verzenay and Pinot Meunier from terroirs in Dizy, Hautvillers and Venteuil are blended with a large proportion of Chardonnay from the magnificent grand cru Cramant vineyards in the Côtes des Blancs. The encépagement of the new Blason Rosé is a blend of 43 percent Pinot Noir, 29 percent Pinot Meunier, 28 percent Chardonnay and up to 20 percent reserve wines. Cremieres still Pinot Noir wine from first growth premier cru is added following maceration to reveal a beautiful salmon rose hue with brilliant copper highlights. Blason Rosé is made to the same high standards as the “Blason” cuvée, in equally limited quantities.
