This wine is named Rosé Première Cuvée because only the first pressing of the grapes is used. In the local language, this first pressing is “la Cuvée”. The blend is a majority of Pinot Noir with a touch of Chardonnay. Pinot noir is present under two forms:
-White wine of Pinot Noir: After a quick pressing, and a fast separation of the skins, the juice is very pale and can be vinified as a white wine.
-Red wine of Pinot Noir is obtained by a prolonged maceration of the juice on the shins. A touch of Chardonnay brings the necessary vivacity o balance the fruits of Pinot Noir.
Rosé Première Cuvée has to counterbalance any harvest, rich or poor. Depending on the year, the blend includes a different percentage of “Rosé Première Cuvée Reserved Wines” aged in tanks and barrels. Rosé Première Cuvée spends three years of ageing in the cellar before disgorgement. Dosage is very low with 6 grams per litre. Presented in a transparent bottle, this wine first seduces with his delicate colour. Rosé Première cuvee is ideal to serve with poultry and cheese. This wine is available in 75 cl bottles, half bottles and magnums. Each bottle carries the date of its disgorgement.
“La Robe”: the pink copper colour with a hint of raspberry when young evolves to salmon while ageing. The fine and smooth bubbles are due to a strict selection of the best grapes, a perfectly controlled temperature in the cellar and a very long ageing.
“Le Nez”: The initial aromas of red-currant and red fruits evolve to morello cherry, wild strawberry and violet while breathing. A touch of lemon denotes the discrete presence of Chardonnay. With age, aromas tend towards dark fruits like dark cherry, fig and blackberry.
“La Bouche”: reveals red fruit captured at their full freshness. The finish is bright and long.
