Creating each blend lies at the heart of the Champagne making process and depends on the talent of the Cellar Master and his team of winemakers.
Available 31st Jul 2015
Blend: 35% Chardonnay, 14% Pinot Noir and 51% Pinot Meunier. Of this total, 10% is Pinot made as red wine and 25% is selected from older reserve wines to give a note of maturity and complexity.
Cellar Master Richard Dailly's tasting notes:
The colour is pale salmon/pink grapefruit.
The nose is subtle, reminiscent of plump, ripe wild strawberries and sun warmed plums.
The palate is gentle, delicate and yet nicely rounded, with a finishing touch of crystallised fruit and a rich note of cherries in eau-de-vie, calling to mind the Pinot's essential contribution to a good Rose.
This Cuvee has all the qualities of a white Champagne with the additional subtle charms that make Rose Champagne so different.
Suggested Wine and Food Pairings:
This rose Champagne will show at its best matched with warm fruit tarts, clafoutis and other desserts based on white and red berries. It will also make a delightful aperitif.
