Rosé de Saignée
7 November 2018

CUVÉE :
Champagne Blanc de rose 1er Cru Extra Brut

TERROIR :
Clay and silt with some marl at depth for the
Pinot Noir and limestone for the Chardonnay.
Average age of the vines: 30 years

BLEND :
2013 vintage
50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir

DOSAGE REGIME :
3 g/l

FORMATS :
special antique bottle

WINEMAKING :

Harvested and sorted by hand. Co-maceration with immersed cap in open oak vats. Avoidance of malolactic fermentation.

TASTING :

Our aim when we created this new vintage was to strive for a Rosé Champagne that was different, lighter. The delicate nose reveals notes of rose and violet petals and a hint of grenadine. In the mouth the striking minerality releases aromas of mandarin orange zest and pink grapefruit. The whole is complemented by a wonderful bitterness and very pleasant freshness as it fades from the mouth.

PAIRING :

While this Blanc de Rose is prefect as an aperitif, it finds a place of honour when taken with raw fish, such as a slightly marinated carpaccio of salmon and halibut or a simple red tuna sashimi.
