Wine type: champagne - Rosè de Blancs - Cuis 1er Cru Cote des Blancs.
Vintage and alcohol content: 12,5°
Region: Champagne Cotes des Blancs - France.
Grape/blend: 88% Chardonnay from Premier Cru (25%) and Grand Cru (63%), 12% Pinot Noir de Bouzy Grand Cru.
Type soil: the soil is poor and rocky, the temperature is ideal in summer (partly due to the micro-climate created by the local wind, the Ora del Garda): vines here still co-exist alongside olive groves.The valley is more open here and the excellent sun exposure allows the grapes to ripen to perfection.
Colour: pale salmon pink with a very fine mousse.
Aroma: delicate red berry flavours with a core of minerality.
Tasting notes: a finely-textured palate and a backbone of crisp acidity. Very pure, linear and elegant.
Serving suggestions: a superb match for langoustines and other shellfish.
