A hymn to the bright delicacy of Pinot Noir, the Premiere Cuvee Rosé is named on account of its composition of only the first pressing. Multi vintages rose, made with Pinot Noir, are created in two ways: White wine from Pinot Noir (after a quick pressing, and a fast separation of the skins, the juice is very pale and can be vinified as a white wine); Red wine from Pinot Noir is obtained by a prolonged maceration of the juice on the skins. A touch of Chardonnay brings the necessary vivacity to balance the fruits of Pinot Noir.
The blend: First pressing of mainly Pinot Noir with some Chardonnay, the amount of which remains a secret. Reserve wines: a blend of 25 vintages, going back to 1985. Ageing: three years sur lie, then a minimum of a further five months after disgorgement.. Dosage: Extra brut, very low dosage, less than 6g/L. A very pure wine.
