More information Perrier Jouët Belle Epoque Rose 2006 Cava - Champagne
Perrier-Jouët was established in 1811 by Pierre-Nicolas-Marie Perrier, adding the maiden name of his wife, Ad le Jouët, to name the house. They established themselves in the town of Épernay, and set about building up their brand and exploring foreign markets; by 1815 they were already exporting wine to England, and within a few more years they added the USA to their list of export destinations.
Such success obviously led to a greater demand for their wines, and the family were soon acquiring or planting new vineyards in Aÿ, Avize, Cramant, Mailly and elsewhere. Many were planted with Chardonnay, bringing a delicacy to the Perrier-Jouët style, a style said to have been favoured by Pierre-Nicolas-Marie, and a trait that can still be found in the wines of Perrier-Jouët today.
The Belle Epoque Rosé is made by the addition of red wine rather than the saignée method, with a final blend otherwise very similar to the straight Belle Epoque, with the Chardonnay sourced from Cramant in each case.
