The colour, is a robe of pure salmon pink and the nose reveals complex yet elegant aromas of strawberries, citrus fruits, sour cherry and orange with hints of cream and spice. Leading on to the palate, the wine is generous and ample. The approach is fresh, awakening the senses with hints of orange confit, white peach and cocoa, leading to a rich, rounded finish.
Hervé Deschamps has hand-crafted this wine to achieve the perfect balance between the unique characteristics of the 2005 vintage and the consistency of the Perrier-Jouët house style. With grapes sourced from the best vineyards in Cramant, Avize and Le Mesnil the Chardonnays (45%) bring elegance and freshness to the blend.
Generous and rounded, the 2005 vintage combines the elegance of the Chardonnay with the richness of the Pinot Noirs (50%) from Mailly, Aÿ, Verzy and Rilly; and the rounded aromas of red fruits from the Pinot Meuniers from Dizy (5%).
Finally, Pinot Noir red wines (11%) from Vertus and Vincelles give the cuvée its subtle and pure Rosé hue. With six years ageing in the cellars and a dosage of 8 grams per litre this assemblage has developed an aromatic richness that is both harmonious and persistent.
