Type: Rosé Champagne
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir
100% Pinot Noir. This wine is made by macerating whole bunches of Pinot Noir for about 60 hours. Aged for 10 months in barrel on the lees, bottled with 3 g/l.
A very gourmand style, with spicy fruit, herbal infections and an ample, palate-coating texture.
Review of previous disgorgement:
"Disgorged with 2.5 gams per liter dosage, Lahaye's NV Rosé de Macération saw a day or two of maceration in tank before pressing, followed by vinification in amphora and barrel. Bursting with aromas of peonies, blood orange, red berries and spices, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and flavorful, with lively acids and a saline finish."
