Definitively a FOUFOU favorite!
This fruity sparkling rosé champagne delights the palate with delicate spice and exquisite aromas of a medley of red fruits and brioche. A pleasant surprise, composed of 50% Chardonnay, 44% Pinot Noir and 6% Meunier from the 2009 and 2008 vintages, biodynamically produced and aged in wooden barrels. Disgorged in August 2015 with 6 grams of dosage. Like almost all Tarlant Champagnes, the Rosé has a very long maturation period for a non-vintage champagne. A characteristic that becomes immediately evident both on the first nose and on the tongue. Soft and wonderfully harmonious – even in fragrance.
Strawberry not only defines the color but also the initial aromatic prelude. Strawberry compote blends with raspberries, red apple, cranberry and pomelo, with a backdrop of sweetish yeast dough. Floating above this medley, a hint of white flowers and spices.
- Strawberry color in the glass, with fine perlage.
- On the nose a slight sweetness with a coherent, lush and inviting aroma of red fruits. Strawberry, raspberry, mingled with apple and cranberry. A real fruit surprise!
- Juicy and full-bodied on the palate, it evokes memories of the first bite of a pomelo. At once the silky notes of yeast mark their spot, lending the champagne its elegance and creaminess.
- Perfect apertif.
- Superb companion to poultry dishes with fruity sauces.
- Pairs equally well with light vegetarian dishes and fruit desserts.
The Tarlant Champagne House
The Tarlant family of winemakers is one of the leaders in its field. Siblings Benoit and Melanie Tarlant are the 12th generation to run the house. Every one of the more than 40 vineyard plots is tended meticulously and with great dedication, and pressed individually. The entire process follows biodynamic standards and is completed by hand. The Tarlant champagnes mature on the yeast for an average of five years, the champagnes of the great sites for up to 16 years. To maintain the originality of the champagnes, the dosage is limited to 0-0.6g/l.
