Winemaker Notes

A smooth and finely chiselled, subtle and rich wine, with myriad floral notes and a long finish. The Cuvée Belle Epoque Rosé 2004 represents a blend dominated by the Chardonnays of the Cramant and Avize Grand Crus. The Pinot Noir Grand Crus are from Mailly and Verzy, and are rich and powerful with red-fruit notes. A wine that has been carefully crafted, Belle Epoque Rosé owes its subtle style to the carefully selected still red wines (just 9% of the blend) that give a rosé shade without dominating the palate. Great care and expertise have been used to preserve Perrier- Jouët's elegant style despite the power of the red wines.

Critical Acclaim

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
With just the right amount of toasty age, this is gorgeous. Its strawberry note is woven into its rich texture, with a flavor of fresh croissant and a final burst of acidity. It could age, but why wait.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Delicate acidity and subtle flavors of black cherry, plum, black licorice and spice are well-meshed with the fine texture and creamy minerality of this elegant rosé, which has a smoky finish. Drink now through 2020. 2,000 cases imported.
TP 93
Tasting Panel
Soft salmon pink; minerally and rich with spice, raspberry and cherry; complex, stylish and ripe; dense and long.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2004 Brut Rose Cuvee Belle Epoque is a deceptively light-colored wine. It shows off striking inner perfume and richness as the fruit flows across the palate. Sweet red berries, crushed flowers and spices are some of the notes that wrap around the finish. Though medium in body and feminine in style, there is an element of depth that is compelling. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
A fine orange-gold color with pink hues introduces this wine, its pale strawberry notes building on the freshness of the color. This is tighly built, while feeling creamy and soft, a gentle floral honey note over the red fruit. Pour it with roast fish.

Perrier-Jouët, , France - Other regions
Perrier-Jouet
Perrier-Jouët was founded in 1811 in Epernay by Pierre-Nicolas-Marie Perrier and his wife, Adele Jouët. One of the most prestigious houses in Champagne, the firm was shipping wine to Great Britain by 1813 and to the United States by 1837. Perrier-Jouët owns 266 acres of vineyards in Champagne, with an average rating of 95%, and is known worldwide for its consistency of style.

By the end of the 19th Century, its Brut cuvées earned the reputation of nobility and prestige that continues today. Perrier Jouët's glamorous "Cuvée Belle Epoque", known in the United States as Fleur de Champagne, was launched in 1969 and has become the most important cuvée de prestige to appear after World War II. The bottle is adorned with enamel-painted anenomes originally created by Emile Gallé in 1900, but the wine is as famous for its taste as it is for its beautiful packaging.

South Africa

View all wine

An underappreciated wine-producing country currently undergoing a renaissance, South Africa has a surprisingly long and rich history considering its status as part of the “New World” of wine. In the mid-17th century, the lusciously sweet dessert wines of Constantia were highly prized by the European aristocracy. Since then, the South African wine industry has experienced some setbacks due to the phylloxera infestation of the late 1800s and political difficulties throughout the following century. Today, however, it is increasingly responsible for high-quality wines that are helping to put the country back on the international wine map. Wine production is mainly situated around Cape Town, where the climate is generally warm to hot, but the Benguela current from Antarctica provides the brisk ocean breezes necessary for steady ripening. Similarly, cooler high-elevation vineyard sites offer climatic diversity.

South Africa’s wine regions are divided into region, then smaller districts, and finally wards, but the country’s wine styles are differentiated more by grape variety than by region. Pinotage, a cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsault, is the country’s “signature” grape, responsible for earthy, gamey reds. When Pinotage is blended with other red varieties, like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, or Pinot Noir (all commonly vinified alone as well), it is often labeled as a “Cape Blend.” Chenin Blanc (locally known as “Steen”) dominates white wine production, with Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc following behind.

Other Red Blends

View all wine

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
