Wine Description

The Rosé brings roundness and body in one. Hints of nice pink reflections and salmon nuances supported by regular elegant effervescence. Delicate red fruit character on the palate makes this wine so complete. This sparkler is an invitation to festive occasions.

Dominated by the Pinot Blanc varietal, this Crémant Brut allies freshness, structure and subtleness. The Riesling adds definition to the blend where the Pinot Gris gives some creaminess and charm. The bubbles are fine and delicate with regular mousse persistence. Lots of floral on the nose and a fruity lively mouth feel. This sparkler is a classic for every occasion.

The wines are then bottled with their “dosage” (sugar, yeast and neutralized clay) for the “prise de mousse” (5,5 bar) and placed on laths or stainless racks.

Along with strawberry and red raspberry fruit suggestions that are enhanced by the wine's discreet hint of sweetness, there are saline, meaty, and herbal notes to add interest to both the nose and a lush palate, and the hints of salinity and bitterness in the finish make for an invigorating complement to the wine's prominent fruit.

The grapes are hand picked. The whole cluster grapes are directly pressed in a pneumatic press with a long and soft pressing, hence the coral/ light pink salmon color. Cremant Rosé is made by the Cham...
