The ruby red hue of this Rosé de Saignée is, first and foremost, a treat for the eyes. The nose of this Champagne is a bouquet of spring. Rose, wild strawberry, raspberry and later blackberry harmonize perfectly to offer the taster aromas unexpected in a usual Rosé Champagne. The palate is a continuation of the nose, with the structure of Pinot Noir leaving a convincing vinosity on the finish. Because of its freshness, this Champagne Rosé de Saignée should be enjoyed young to benefit fully from these crisp, fresh red fruit aromas.
This rosé champagne will harmonize perfectly with trendy “Asian” cuisine by offering savory, sweet and spicy flavors. A steak tartare will reveal the vinosity of this Champagne, thus bringing balance to the dish. A peach soup accompanied by some strawberries with a glass of this Champagne Rosé will leave an unforgettable memory in your eyes and mouth.
