General information

Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé is an exceptional cuvée from the House's prestigious collection. Made exclusively from excellent vintages, this wine is the fruit of the generosity of nature. Spring was plagued by late frosts that decimated much of the region's Crus in April, although fortunately the Perrier-Jouët vineyards were unscathed. In June, the weather
It became much warmer, allowing flowering to come to fruition during the last two weeks of the month.

In July, despite being peppered with violent occasional storms, the entire region was plunged into a heat wave that did not cease until August, when the weather was cooler and more humid. Nature finally decided to be benevolent and September brought the perfect conditions for the ripening of the grapes to be completed before the harvest.
