Champagne A. Margaine Le Rosé NV

Montagne de Reims, Champagne, FranceArnaud Margaine is 5th generation winegrower in the Montagne de Reims, overseeing their sustainable vineyards. Their home village of Villers-Marmery is a little island of chalky Chardonnay in an abundant sea of Pinot Noir. This Rosé blends 80% chardonnay and 20% pinot noir, including 6% still pinot noir. Fermented in stainless, with no MLF, this went into bottle and spent 24 months on lees prior to disgorge in May 2023 with 9 g/L. Perfumed cherry blossoms, raspberry, red and green apple flood a generous, softer palate, with ample perfume and a strawberry brioche sweetness. A softer, easier, pretty style.Tasted: 15 November 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
