A sparkling, fun rosé! A full 100% Pinot Noir leave their mark and make this champagne a fruity and tart representative of its kind. The cuvée is 80% 2014 vintage and 12% aged in oak barrels. It aged on the yeast for 45 months, until its dégorgement in December 2018. A modern rosé: chalky, salty, juicy with crisp notes of raspberry and currant and delicate finish.
- In the glass, a light rosé with orange reflections and a very active perlage.
- On the nose, the champagne delights with aromas of raspberry, orange and grapefruit with hints of hay and herbs.
- In the palate, the Rosé Premier Cru develops a fine mousseux and fruity tart aromas of raspberry.
- Very suitable with vegetarian dishes such as cous cous and beet.
Or also with wild fowl and bitter salads.
The Champagne House Lacourte-Godbillon
The estate of Geraldine Lacourte and Richard Desvignes is located in Ecueil, in the heart of the Montagne des Reims. Their 8.5 hectares are all in Premier Cru sites nearby. In 2006, the couple converted the vines to a natural farming method and are in the process of converting to organic farming. The vineyards are planted with 85% Pinot Noir and 15% Chardonnay and boast an average of 30 years of age. The grapes are first fermented in stainless steel and some are aged in oak barrels. The wood for the barrels is obtained entirely from the region. Every wine from every vintage receives its own individual dosage to achieve balance and show its character. The overall character of the wines is rather modern. They are very clear and tight, also reflecting their origin. Albeit without forfeiting their fine fruitiness and elegant depth.
