Crus: Reuil, Le Breuil, Neuville sur Seine, Verneuil, Châtillon sur Marne, Avenay Val d’Or

 

Vinification: 1st alcoholic fermentation only in thermoregulated vats followed by malolactic fermentation and blending with reserve wines stored in temperaturecontrolled tanks and oak barrels.

 

Ageing: blending of two to three different harvests and then conservation for 28 to 32 months in the cellar

 

Specificities: The bottle is silkscreen printed on transparent glass so you can admire the rose colour. The white wine is identical to the Prestige Brut. To get the rose colour, we make it with a combination of red wine up to 8 to 11% and white wine. Red wine is vinified by us with Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir harvested in old vineyards (>50 years)

Nice salmon pink colour with bright rosé and thin and plentiful bubbles

Sour with notes of “English candies” and exotic fruits
