Description
 
Champagne Jean Vesselle is established in Bouzy more than three centuries ago. Hanging down the champagne making tradition from generation to generation, the winery now owns 15 hectares in Bouzy, all classified as 100% Grand Cru. Bouzy produces the best Pinot Noir in the Champagne region. It is from their rosé that Champagne Jean Vesselle gains international fame since 2000s. The winery now follows an environmentally friendly philosophy of viticulture: chemical treatment is limited to minimal, renewable sources of energy is used.

The name "Œil de Perdrix" means "eye of partridge" and is used to describe the attractive pink colour of this bird’s eyes. Œil de Perdrix Rosé is known for its fascinating pale salmon pink colour, creamy texture, and vibrant palate. This is a lost art in the Champagne region, before the assemblage method become predominate. Nowadays, less than 20 champagne houses are still making Œil de Perdrix Champagne, Jean Vesselle is among them, and is only boutique house that are exported internationally.

Originated from Champagne, this is a common method of making rosé Champagne until 19th century. Œil de Perdrix Rosé is made by "direct pressing" (pressurage direct) method. Only grapes with optimal ripeness are used, and juice of the red grapes is drawn off and fermented. This method gives a unique light pink tint to the wine, and more generous fruits and exotic style.
