Larmandier-Bernier MV "Rosé de Saignée" Extra Brut 1er Cru Champagne, France

Winemakers: Pierre & Sophie Larmandier

Farming: Biodynamic

Grapes: 90% Pinot Noir & 10% Pinot Gris

Soil / Terroir: Vineyards are located in Vertus (Côte des Blancs) with deep chalky soil and rich topsoil with a average vine age of 30 years.

Vinfication: 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. Native yeasts. 

Dosage: 3 g/l RS.

Scores / Accolades:

  • 96 Points, Wine Advocate
  • 95 point, Vinous

Tasting Notes: This is one of our absolute favorites at DECANTsf! This is a savory, explosive Rose de Saignée Champagne, evocative of blood orange, hibiscus tea and calk-dusted Pink Lady apples. This wine is brimming with tension, and is rich enough to stand up to more serious dishes, or even just a bag of Salt & Vinegar chips (one of Simi's favorite pairings)!
