Cuvée Alexandra Rosé. The first vintage of this wine, 1982, was launched for daughter Alexandra’s wedding in 1987. Fortunately, a few bottles still remain for the rest of the world as well. Cuvée Alexandra Rosé is vintage champagne that is made only in the best years. Guillaume Deglise says:- All grapes come from Grand Cru vineyards. Eighty per cent of the mix is Pinot Noir and the rest is Chardonnay.
Cuvée Alexandra Rosé is a rare rosé champagne because a method called saignee is used in its making. This delicate method means that the grapes are left to be extracted with their skins until the desired colour has been achieved. Deglise reminds us:
- Making rosés by this method is highly demanding. I think our former cellar manager even slept next to the tank so as not to miss the moment when the colour and the aroma of the wine were at their best!
Cuvée Alexandra Rosé is stored for a long time, over ten years, and it is deliciously ready to drink right after its launching, but it will certainly continue to develop exquisitely after that.
