Slightly salmony/pink grapefruit in colour. The nose is subtle, recalling fleshy little wild strawberries and sundrenched ripe plums. On the palate, it is soft and rich but still retains a lovely lightness of touch. Notes of sweets and crystallised fruits linger, lifted by a touch of eau-de-vie of cherries from the Pinot Noir as befits a true rosé. This cuvée has all the character of a white Champagne plus that subtle extra charm of a true Rosé Champagne.
Food and wine matching:
This Rosé Champagne will show at its best with warm tarts, clafoutis and red and white fruit based puddings. It makes a charming aperitif.
