Winery Notes:

Rose Sauvage, meaning Wild Rose in French, is not your typical Champagne Rose. A high proportion of Pinot Noir results in a bold, deep-hued rosé and a palate that is structured, full-bodied, and yet distinctly elegant. This unique, fruity Champagne, carefully crafted from over 100 crus, is guaranteed to delight all the senses.

On the eye: A flamboyant, scarlet red robe - a recognizable signature. Delicate and lively effervescence.

On the nose: A rich and expressive red fruit nose - blackcurrant, blackberry, cherry and Gariguette strawberry, freshened with citrus, mandarin and blood orange. A finish lifted with paprika and saffron.

On the palate: A brisk, original and juicy wine which simultaneously offers black cherry, blackberry, pink grapefruit and blood orange notes. This structure and fruitiness is enriched with warm, spicy notes of Espelette pepper, tea and liquorice.

Wine SpectatorA deeply-hued, vinous rosé, almost garnet in color, this distinctive version offers dried cherry and currant flavors, accented by delicate dried thyme, graphite and singed orange peel notes. Well-recommended for food, this is firm and lightly chalky in texture, with a lingering, mineral-laced finish. Drink now through 2023. 20,000 cases made, 2,500 cases imported.
