This champagne shows fine mousse in the glass (meaning delicate bubbles as opposed to airy Angel Delight!) and attractive pinky colour, and it's good fruity stuff with ripe strawberry and vanilla rolling over your tongue. That's enhanced by classic baked biscuit flavours and crisp yeastiness.
Producer Details The Gremillet estate comprises of 33 hectares of vineyards and is situated in a small village 45 kilometres from Troyes, the historic capital of Champagne, 180 kilometres south of Paris. The vines lie on steep, sun-drenched hillsides, ideal for creating a classic baked biscuit, rich fruit Champagne.
In the Vineyard The Pinot Noir grapes are pressed for up to 2 hours to extract the jus de presse, then vinified and blended to give this delicate and delicious ros Champagne.Champagne must age for a minimum of 15 months before release. Gremillet age all their Ros Champagnes for a minimum of 24 months to ensure that the wines are not too young and have married all the elements.
