NV Rosé de Saignée Extra Brut
90% Pinot Noir & 10% Pinot Gris
From the estate’s oldest vines planted in the village of Vertus.
This Rosé is made in the saignée method (contrary to many Rosé Champagnes which add red wine). The wine is fermented in 1 stainless tank and 2 concrete eggs followed by lees aging with bâtonnage for one year. Secondary fermentation and further aging on the lees for over two years. Disgorged 6 months prior to release.

“Endowed with stunning depth, richness and explosive aromatic intensity. Over the last few vintages, the Larmandier’s have moved their Rosé away from the dark, overt wines of the past to a style that emphasizes focus and cut. Those qualities come through loud and clear in a Champagne that sizzles with tension. A whole range of floral and savory overtones punctuate the striking finish. Simply magnificent. Run, don’t walk.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

“The latest edition of Larmandier-Bernier's NV Extra Brut Rosé de Saignée is simply stunning, wafting from the glass with scents of minty red apples, rose petals and blood orange. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, pure and elegant, with a concentrated core of vibrant fruit, a pinpoint mousse and a long, beautifully fragrant finish. This wine's alliance of delicacy and intensity makes it one of the most exciting rosé bottlings being produced in all of Champagne. This cuvée derives from the domaine's oldest vines in Vertus and is disgorged with three grams per liter dosage.”- William Kelley, Wine Advocate
