40% Pinot Noir, 40% Meunier and 20% Chardonnay. It is a rosé d’Assemblage (blended rosé) that contains around 6% red wine from Champagne. Between 40 and 50% of reserve wines are used in order to ensure consistency.
Harvested by hand, whole bunch pressing, alcoholic fermentation at 17 ̊C and malolactic fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Horizontal ageing in traditional chalk cellars for at least 30 months. The wines are left to rest an additional 2 months after dosage before being shipped.
Elegant salmon colour. Fine persistent bubbles. Very fresh nose. Large range of small red fruits including mulberry, raspberry and red currant. Lovely intense aromas and a positive first impression in the mouth with flavours of ripe red fruit. Harmonious balance between roundness and freshness.
This is a very engaging Champagne to be served with an assortment of wild berries and a light Sabayon or a fresh fruit soup. Also lovely with quail, game with cranberries or even a foie gras.
