Technical notes
The Pinot Noir grapes, the main constituent of the cuvée, are vinified as a rosé wine with brief maceration on the skins and subsequent soft pressing. The Chardonnay grapes, harvested from areas wellsuited to sparkling wine production, are also soft pressed. The two varieties are fermented separately at a controlled temperature of 15-16 °C. The cuvée is then assembled and liqueur de tirage is added in the spring to initiate secondary fermentation in bottle at a cellar temperature of 11-12 °C. The wine then rests on its lees for at least 22 months before being disgorged and released for sale.

Tasting notes
Pale pink in colour with peach reflections and small, long-lasting bubbles. On the nose there are fruity hints of raspberry and sweet spices all wrapped up in lovely yeasty notes. Dynamic yet refined on the palate with an elegant freshness and delicate creaminess which carry along its lingering scents of fruits of the forest and aromatic herbs.

Food pairings
An intriguing aperitif, it also makes a delicious companion to fish (especially pink-fleshed salmon, prawns and shrimp) and comes into its own as an accompaniment to elaborate seafood-based meals. A fascinating pairing to food from the Far East and other spicy cuisine.
