This blend of 75% Chardonnay from 40+ year old vines in Grand Cru of Le Mesnil and 25% Grand Cru Pinot vines from Ambonnay is on the delicate, pretty end of the Rosé Champagne spectrum. 8 gr/l dosage. Disgorgement: December 2017

The NV (2015) Brut Rosé is absolutely gorgeous. Powerful and deep in the glass, the Rosé offers a super-appealing interplay of textural richness from the year married with the tension that makes the Moncuit Champagnes so distinctive. Cranberry, strawberry, chalk mineral and floral notes are beautifully delineated in this vibrant, finely sketched Rosé from Moncuit. The presence of the 25% Pinot from Bouzy is very clearly felt in the wine's weight and resonance. Dosage is 8 grams per liter. Disgorged: December 2017.
