Laherte Frères Rosé de Meunier NV

Bottle

Composition

First created in 2012, Rosé de Meunier is composed of 100% Meunier from Coteaux Sud d’Épernay and Vallée de la Marne vineyards. Using both methods of champagne rosé creation, assemblage (‘blending’) and saignée (‘bleeding’), the Meunier is expressed three ways:

  • 60% is made as a white wine (40% of this portion comes from barrel-aged reserves)
  • 30% is made as a rosé using the saignée method (grapes are macerated on skins and seeds for a short period before the juice is drained off to ferment on its own)
  • 10% is made as a still red wine.

Dosage is kept at 2.5 g/L to preserve aromatics without losing freshness.

The result is a unique and harmoniously balanced cuvée with strong character and elegance.

Taste

Pleasant bouquet of dewy rose, apple and pear skins branch into a spring mist of green fruit, dried raspberries, rose petals and shimmering minerals on the palate. Texturally dry at the beginning, the precise edges billow out with body as rich fruit and saline lingers with liveliness on the tongue.

Glass match

Best enjoyed from a Lehmann Jamesse Prestige, Synergie 75 handmade glass.

Food match

A solid cuvée with a freshness and generosity to pair with steak tartare and a simple tossed salad with lemon vinaigrette.
