2020 Larmandier Bernier Rosé de Saignée Extra Brut Premier cru

$99.00

Description

This is their “regular” rosé de saignée, from old vine Pinot Noir (and a 10% smidgen of Pinot Gris) in Vertus, partially de-stemmed, co-macerated for 2-3 days, and then aged in stainless steel on the lees for a year, then bottle aged for 2 years prior to disgorgement. This freshly disgorged batch of the 2019 rosé, from a lower yielding, highly concentrated vintage, will fall right in line with the outstanding track record of this most singular and under-the-radar best-in-class quality here….for fans of great rosé Champagne, I can’t recommend their rosés highly enough. Mags no less…..let’s celebrate!!! ;0

“The NV Extra Brut Rosé de Saignée is beautifully cut and chiseled in this release. There’s plenty of saignée Pinot intensity, but tons of energy and drive too. Crushed red berry fruit, cinnamon, blood orange, pomegranate and dried flowers flesh out over time, but it is the wine’s vibrancy that I find most captivating. The 2019 is 100% Pinot Noir from 45+ year old vines in Vertus. Dosage is 2 grams per liter.” 94 Antonio Galloni for the 2019 base year, NOT THE 2020 BASE YEAR OFFERED HERE.
