Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Vinification on fine lees in small aged oak barrels. Malo-lactic fermentation takes place. Unfined.

Tasting notes
A fine robe with salmon pink reflections. Red fruit and pastries on the nose. The mouth is broad in the mouth, with a fat texture and spicy hints. A rosé champagne that is full of personality.

Suggestions
Serve at 10 °C (50°F) as an aperitif, with cold meats, poultry, barbecued food, spicy cooking and salmon.
