Elaboration of our Cuvée Rosée :
Our Cuvée Rosée Grand Cru is elaborated with 13 % of Bouzy Rouge incorporated to our Champagne Brut (blend of 70 % of Pinot Noir and 30 % of Chardonnay). Our Bouzy-Rouge ages in oak barrels. Bottling on April 2015. Manual riddling. Dosage at disgorging : 8.8 g/l of sugar.
Tasting notes :
Radiant and strong candy-pink colour. Floral and fresh nose, with fine white fruits aromas, strawberry and a touch of vanilla biscuit. On the palate, our Champagne Rosé is suave, balanced and fine. It seduces by the generosity of its aromas of fresh fruits and pastry. Sleek, long and refreshing finish, supported by a nice acidity.
Combining the strength of Pinot Noir with the delicacy of Chardonnay, our Cuvée Rosée has the character to match with a meal. It is also ideal as an aperitif or dessert, with « biscuits roses » de Reims for example !
