|This wine is named Rose Premiere Cuvee because only the first pressing of the grapes is used. In the local language, this first pressing is “la Cuvee”.
The blend is a majority of Pinot Noir with a touch of Chardonnay. Pinot noir is present under two forms:
-White wine of Pinot Noir: After a quick pressing, and a fast separation of the skins, the juice is very pale and can be vinified as a white wine.
-Red wine of Pinot Noir is obtained by a prolonged maceration of the juice on the shins. A touch of Chardonnay brings the necessary vivacity o balance the fruits of Pinot Noir. Rose Premiere Cuvee has to counterbalance any harvest, rich or poor. Depending on the year, the blend includes a different percentage of “Rose Premiere Cuvee Reserved Wines” aged in tanks and barrels. Rose Premiere Cuvee spends three years of ageing in the cellar before disgorgement. Dosage is very low with 6 grams per litre. Presented in a transparent bottle, this wine first seduces with his delicate colour. Rose Premiere cuvee is ideal to serve with poultry and cheese.
