Winery Notes:
Origin:
This “skin contact maceration” Rosé is elaborated from a selected parcel called “Les Buissons” which has a very good exposure right at the entrance of the village of Verzy. This parcel is only Pinot Noir and it is 50 years old. We will add 20 to 25% of Chardonnay from Verzy.

Characteristics of the wine:
Aspect:
a very pretty salmon pink with a very fine persistent mousse.
Aroma:
the nose offers a palette of red fruits, wild berries, pears and some notes of tobacco.
Taste:
this dry, full bodied rosé, with a well balanced structure and a long finish is perfect as an aperitif and ideal for accompanying meals.
