This fine rose Champagne is made from 100% Pinot Noir grown in the Charlemagne vineyards in Sezanne where the chalk clay soil is perfect for this grape variety. Unlike most rose Champagnes, it is made by the saignee method; that is macerating the juice with the skins for a short while until the required rose colour is obtained rather than adding red wine to white wine.
The first fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks but after the secondary fermentation in bottle it is allowed to age gracefully in the underground cellars for a minimum of 2 years before it is given a dosage of just 8 grams per litre of sugar.
This elegantly packaged pink Champagne is ideal for all celebrations and works well as an aperitif or with fish such as salmon. Never forget this is the lady's favourite!!
