100% Pinot Noir
From old vines in Vertus
This technique is rarely used in Champagne: the Pinots are partly destemmed and left to macerate for two to three days before the 'bleeding' is carried out. Then come the natural alcoholic fermentation (indigenous yeast) in an enamel-lined steel vat, the malolactic fermentation and the maturation on the lees for about a year. The bottling takes place end of July.
After being aged a minimum of 2 years in our cellars, the wine is disgorged 6 months before being marketed with a discreet dosage (3 grams of sugar).
JamesSuckling.com, October 2017 - Rosé de Saignée 1er Cru Extra Brut NV || 92 points
“Vintage 2014 released early as NV, this is a terrific expression of youthful pinot noir saignée with a 10% inclusion of co-planted pinot gris fermented in stainless and concrete eggs (20-25%). Delivers chalky minerals, poached pear and strawberries on the nose and palate. Smooth, soft and supple palate texture. Delicious. Made to drink young.”
