Champagne Brut Nature Rose'
100% Pinot Noir
Brut Nature Rosé in a nutshell… Rosé made using the saignée method Zero dosage Nature Very low sulphur content Aromas of red fruits, mandarin orange and white pepper Pinot Noir
The Drappier vineyard covers 100 hectares and constitutes the House’s essential trump card. Since 1808 our family has used its skill to select parcels of land which are particularly well exposed and extremely rich in limestone. For the most part they are located around Urville, where the Pinot Noir, in the majority, finds its loveliest expression and allows the production of very elegant, aromatic wines.
Vinification of the Brut Nature Rosé cuvée Rosé made using the saignée method with maceration in vats lasting 3 days Only the juices from first pressing – the cuvées - are used Mechanical low-pressure presses Use of gravity to avoid pumping, thus avoiding oxidisation Minimal use of sulphur Natural settling Alcoholic fermentation for roughly 2 weeks at low temperature Then total and natural malolactic fermentation No filtering Assemblage – 100% of the wines are made in vats in order to preserve as much freshness as possible After bottling the cuvée is aged for 2 to 3 years sur lattes (on laths) Zero dosage
Tasting notes On the nose, very evocative of strawberry and raspberry with a floral note of rose petals. The palate recalls red fruits and is augmented by hints of citrus fruit, mandarin orange and a small, very refined touch of white pepper.
Serving suggestions Ideal as an aperitif. Goes perfectly with salmon carpaccio or scallops, sushi, grilled meats… Serve at 7°C.
