Manual harvest with sorting on sorting table. Cold maceration for 60 hours in open oak vats. Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation avoided.
The goal during the creation of this new vintage was to develop a different, more airy rosé champagne.
The delicacy of the nose will reveal notes of rose petals, violets and a hint of grenadine. On the palate, surprising minerality lets aromas of tangerine peel and pink grapefruit emerge. All enhanced by superb bitterness and a very pleasant fresh finish.
This Blanc de Rose was born for the aperitif. But it will find a place of choice alongside raw fish, such as a lightly marinated carpaccio of salmon and halibut or simply a sashimi of bluefin tuna.
