Pierre Gerbais Rosé de Saignée Brut Nature NV

Bottle

Composition

Produced using the rare saignée technique, which literally translates as ‘bleeding’, this allows the pigment from the skins to bleed into the juice from the grapes. The 100% pinot noir grapes are left to infuse in its juices for a period of 24 hours so that the deep colour, flavour and texture of the wine develops. All other processes are as natural and low intervention as possible with the wine maturing on lees in vats. It is then aged for 30 months in bottle on laths in the cellars and is disgorged six months before being taken to market. Dosage is zero.

Taste

No oak is used so it’s bright and crisp to start with and once it warms up a little, medium to full bodied. Vibrant and energetic with notes of wild strawberry and raspberry. Vinous, or wine-like, it finishes with great length.

Food match

Traditional Peking Duck; perfectly rendered, crisp-skinned duck slices served with pancakes alongside plum sauce and finely sliced cucumbers and spring onions.
