Grand Rosé Brut – Non-Vintage
Vineyard Sources: Avize, Chouilly, Villers-Marmery, Ambonnay, Verzenay, Bouzy
Malolactic Fermentation: None
Time Spent in Cellars Prior to Disgorging: Minimum 3 years
Dosage: Brut (9g/L)
The Grand Brut Rosé is a soft hue of salmon pink with a few ruby-cherry reflections. The nose is clearly marked by strawberries. Well-structured with a constant tension between freshness and fruity roundness, the wine is dominated by a red pulpy fruit — perhaps wild strawberry (cream or as a coulis) — giving a soft, coated sensation. It is round with a beautifully fresh finish.
“This is almost a vintage. Indeed, I added just a very little amount of reserve wines. The low dosage gives a nice balance. The red wines from Bouzy and Ambonnay are in perfect balance with the majority of the Chardonnay.” Jean-Pierre Mareigner, Cellarmaster
Suggested Serving Temperatures: Between 8 C and 10 C (46 F and 50 F)
Suggested Pairings: Due to the gentle nature of this champagne, fruit is an ideal match; as is foie gras for the daring and for the fat and sweetness of the base of this wine. The Grand Rosé Brut also pairs well with fish or shellfish.
- Varietal Composition: 58% Chardonnay, 42% Pinot Noir (including 8% red wine)
- Alcohol: 12%
