Champagne is very beautiful coral color.
Perfect and fascinating taste with hints of berries and a long velvety finish.
Rose de Saignee - it's a whole bunch of flavors. Roses, wild strawberries and raspberries together in perfect harmony.
An excellent aperitif. It is also in harmony with seafood (clams, mussels, shrimp, oysters, lobsters, crabs).
Cuvee Rose de Saigne - is the perfect pink champagne, which is done on old technology. Before malolactic fermentation, Pinot Noir is purified from the crests and insist for two days until the berries will not go juice. This is called Saignee, that is "bleeding". In the language of wine, this means using freely leaked grape juice, which is in contact with the grape skins prior to fermentation. Spilled juice gives color and most of the body and flavor of wine. This method is now rarely used in Champagne. Fruity and spicy, with a magic taste and superb elegant scent, it will complement any event, will satisfy even the most refined connoisseurs of this great beverage. Recommended term exposure Rene Zhefrua Rose de Sene from 4 to 8 years.
