Etienne Calsac Rosé de Craie

What — Rosé Champagne (90% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir)
Where — Champagne, France
When — NV

Delicate red fruits and bursting citrus with a chalky minerality

+ Read More

Etienne Calsac bravely began his eponymous estate in 2010, at the age of 26. With three hectares of vines, the majority of Etienne’s domaine is Chardonnay which makes his Rosé de Craie (meaning “Rosé from chalk”) a rare expression – a blend of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir – with only 1,500 bottles produced each year. This Rosé is an example of a Rosé d’Assemblage, whereby red wine is blended with the still wine to create its colour, before going to bottle for its secondary fermentation. Its Chardonnay dominance rings true to Etienne’s signature style of chalky minerality and fresh citrus characters, intertwined with delicate red fruits. A young vigneron that continues to go from strength to strength across his range.

Laherte Frères Rosé Ultradition

What — Rosé Champagne (100% Meunier)
Where — Champagne, France
When — NV

Red berries, ripe plums with an orange rind aroma

+ Read More

Aurélien Laherte now represents the seventh generation for Laherte Frères, originally founded in 1889. Their vineyards are in the Côteaux Sud d’Epernay, a sub-region sandwiched between the Côtes des Blancs and the Vallée de la Marne, and are increasingly becoming the emblematic domaine of the region. Commitment to vineyard health is paramount at Laherte Frères where biodynamic and organic practices are used across their 10.5 hectares of vines. The Rosé Ultradition is a truly interesting construction of a Rosé Champagne, as it utilises three different methods of handling Meunier in its production. 30% of the wine is produced by maceration, where the pressed grapes are kept in contact with the skins, drawing some colour. 10% is made into a red wine that is blended in, with the remaining 60% of Meunier produced as a clear wine and includes the use of reserve wines which add further complexity to the wine. The Rosé Ultradition is the sum of its parts, resulting in a deliciously nuanced Rosé Champagne with orange peel, cranberry and floral notes.

R. Geoffroy Rosé de Saignée

What — Rosé Champagne (100% Pinot Noir)
Where — Champagne, France
When — NV

Wild strawberries and herbs over a rich & vinous palate

+ Read More

Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy has never been shy about pushing the boundaries of convention. Choosing to create a Rosé de Saignée is no easy path in Rosé Champagne production. Saignée, which means ‘to bleed’ in French, is a production style where juice is ‘bled off’ after having been macerated for just a few hours, resulting in the Rosé colour. Jean-Baptiste uses just four hours of maceration on a selection of 100% Pinot Noir from two villages to create his example. It takes a deft touch to create Rosé de Saignée Champagnes. Due to their production style, variations in colour are expected on a year-to-year basis. The resulting wine is one of structure and intensity, with juicy red fruit characters such as wild strawberries and raspberries. Geoffroy’s Rosé de Saignée shows that Rosé Champagne can be so much more than a light and delicate example of ‘pink’ wine.
