Based predominantly on a single vintage, Le Rosé is a champagne rosé comprising a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot noir and Meunier with the addition of Coteaux Champenois rouge (still red wine) from one of two of the Domaine’s revered plots—Les Orizeaux in Merfy in certain years, and Les Fontaines in Saint Thierry since 2017.
An exception among the Chartogne-Taillet range, Le Rosé requires more varied oenological work than the House’s single-vineyard champagnes, as blending is carefully undertaken to ensure a champagne rosé that is consistently balanced and finessed without excessive opulence, fruitiness or tannicity.
Spontaneous fermentation is allowed to occur, and dosage is set between 7 and 8 g/L.
Deeply coloured with an orange-pink hue, Le Rosé expresses an alluring bouquet of fresh red berries, lemon and brioche that is reflected precisely on the palate. Further flavours of grapefruit, pear, green apple skin and saline stretch over a dry and generous finish lifted by persistent acidity and gentle minerality—elegantly balanced in its nuance and complexity; rich though not overpowering.
Perfectly paired with traditional homemade lasagne or spaghetti alla marinara with seafood.
