Perrier Jouet Blason Rose 750ml
Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé is the exception among Perrier-Jouët champagnes – a cuvée in which the delicate floral nuances of Chardonnay grapes are complemented by the rich flavours provided by a high proportion of Pinot Noir. Lusciously full and round on the palate, with characteristic notes of red and black fruit, it nevertheless retains a delicacy typical of Maison Perrier-Jouët. Above all, Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé Champagne offers delicious proof of the House’s enduring ability to surprise and to delight.
The color is medium salmon with copper highlights. The bouquet displays aromas of ripe strawberry and bright red raspberry, with notes of light spice hinting at Hawaiian pink ginger, Mandarin orange, and honey with a touch of earthiness. On the palate, the wine shows freshly crushed strawberries with citrus and earth notes on the very long, persistent finish.
This rose pairs perfectly with fresh shellfish or smoked salmon, also an ideal pairing with roasted pheasant breast, pan-fried venison filets with fresh truffles, and wild pork.
