Description

Rosé de Saignée Extra-Brut from Larmandier-Bernier is an intense, concentrated, richly fruity champagne, gourmand and gastronomic.

It is made using the free-run technique, uniquely from Pinot Noir old vines on the Vertus terroir where the champagne house Larmandier-Bernier is established.

This method, little used in Champagne, consists of allowing the grapes to macerate for a few hours or up to a few days, depending on the desired result.

For this Rosé de Saignée Extra-Brut, Pierre and Sophie Larmandier have chosen a maceration of 2 days duration which has given this cuvee its deeply intense color and distinctive aromas.

It is then vatted, and matured on its lees over winter before being bottled and laid in the cellars for around 2 years for full aromatic development.

The great quality, maturity and concentration of the Pinot Noir grapes permit a very light dosage.

Larmandier-Bernier Rosé de Saignée Extra-Brut will go marvelously well with wild smoked salmon or venison with cranberry sauce, and is also delicious on its own.

Tasting

By Patrick Borras

Robe

Rosé de Saignée Extra-Brut from Larmandier-Bernier is a deep garnet colored champagne, with gleams of ruby and intense, energetic bubbles.

Nose

Very fruity, ripe red fruit and compote aromas are followed by slightly spicy, peppery notes which complete the expressive aromatic palette.

Palate

The attack in the mouth is fresh, pure and incisive and the palate slightly vinous, with aromas of macerated red fruits and compote.

Service

It is a rosé champagne which will find its best expression as an accompaniment to red meat or game dishes, and should be served at a temperature of between 8 and 9°C.
