Rosé Prestige Premier Cru NV
“Rosé de Saigneé” is the method that creates the rich and aromatic rosé style before aging for at least three years.
AROMA: Wild cherries, figs and a hint of ginger
TASTE: Fine and harmonious, this layers a lightly chalky texture and firm acidity with flavors of white raspberry, rich pastry, lemon zest and ginger. Mouthwatering.
Grape Varieties Used:
90% Pinot Noir
Sugar Level: 10.00 g/l
Length/Type of Fermentation: Alcoholic fermentation is conducted at low, stable temperatures in single vineyard batches in order to optimize the aromatic complexity inherent to each terroir. All cuvées undergo malolactic fermentation developing a characteristic smoothness and the first inklings of those brioche-like aromas. The “Rosé de Saigneé” method gives the Rosé its signature character.
Length/Type of Aging: The wines are bottled for a second fermentation called “prise de mousse” (capturing the sparkle) then stored at 53 degrees in chalk cellars where they age for a minimum of 36 months.
