Decanter and Watson's Wine hosted an exclusive rosé Champagne masterclass with tasting director, Christelle Guibert leading the way.


On 8 September, Decanter partnered with Watson’s Wine, the leading Hong Kong wine retailer, to organise an exclusive wine tasting featuring 10 Rosé Champagnes from some of the most prestigious Champagne houses including Dom Perignon, Perrier-Jouët, Gosset and Ruinart.

The tasting took place at Whisk in the Mira Hotel, Hong Kong

Only a small privileged group of wine lovers had the opportunity to attend the exclusive tasting.

The wines that were tasted included:

Perrier-Jouët, Blason Rosé, Champagne, France

Perrier-Jouët, Blason Rosé, Champagne, France

Perrier-Jouët is on a roll with both of its Blason cuvées and the current Blason Rosé is everything that a non-vintage pink Champagne should be – yet unfortunately not always is. This is a joy to drink, with its delightfully fresh, crisp fruit and very satisfying aftertaste.

Dom Pérignon, Rosé Brut, Champagne, France, 2005

Pink coral colour with russet highlights. Wild strawberry aromas are followed by peachy notes of summer. Tactile in the mouth, with benign, ripe phenolics. Forward and expressive, there is early pleasure to be had here paired with roast monkfish and Beaufort cheese.
