LIEU DIT « LES BOUTS DE LA VILLE »
Since 2005 we’ve had the privilege to be a member of the Club Trésors de Champagne, in which the rules are very strict. No other cuvée on the market is meeting criteria as demanding as a Special Club bottle. In keeping with these demands, we wanted to highlight the character of our Meuniers through a Special Club Rosé de Saignée made exclusively of this grape.
2016 harvest started on September 20th.
144 hours of cold pre-fermentation maceration
Alcoholic fermentation in barrels, then racking in stainless tanks for neutralization
