Perrier-Jouet - Blason de France rosé - circa 1990's
75 cl - 12.5% alc vol
Very good condition in its original box
The "Blason de France Rosé" cuvée is the first rosé cuvée created by Perrier-Jouet in 1956 and is one of the brand's prestige cuvées. It was also the most prestigious cuvée before the arrival of the Belle Epoque rosé cuvée in 1976.
This cuvée is called today soberly "Blason Rosé". It is again offered in a bottle of the same shape as this old cuvée, but offers lighter bottles, more respectful of the environment.
The proportions of the blend in the cuvée change frequently. This cuvée offers a predominantly Pinot Noir blend.
After tasting and some research, we estimate that this bottle was produced between 1985 and 1990. Because yes we tasted it. A Champagne of great finesse, aromas of strawberries and fresh raspberries, no heaviness or sweetness as it was often the case for rosé champagnes from the 80's/90's.
A very beautiful bottle which we hope will be tasted by lovers of fine champagnes.
Tasting advice: Open the bottle without rushing it, serve 5 cl in a glass, recap the bottle and leave it aside for an hour (yes we know it's long but it's worth it). Enjoy it slowly in the white wine glasses of your favorite glass-maker. This small manipulation will allow you to remove the slight oxidation that there may be when opening.
