Joseph Perrier Cuvee Royale Brut Rose
- Out of stock
The House of Champagne Joseph Perrier was established in 1825, has been under the ownership of the Pithois family since 1888 and is currently in the very capable hands of Jean-Claude Fourmon, a direct descendent of Paul Pithois. Joseph Perrier own 21 hectares of vineyards on the Northern Slopes of the Valle de la Marne, providing 30% of their production, and maintains relationships with growers that have been built up over generations - a combination which ensures consistency and quality. The house style is flavoursome and full-fruited but with considerable poise and elegance.
The Cuvee Royale Rose is a blend of 75% Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier with 25% Chardonnay. It is made by the traditional Champagne method of producing a fully fermented red wine - in this case Joseph Perrier's own AOC Cumieres Rouge - and blending it with the white base wine. The red wine here makes up around 15% of the overall cuvee, and produces a really intense, berry fruit quality, which provides the perfect balance to the Champagne's citrussy crispness and dry finish.
