Périne Baillette leads her family’s domaine and demonstrates an incredible understanding of the terroirs she works with. Based in the lesser-known village of Trois Puits, Périne’s fastidious work is quickly drawing attention from a multitude of Champagne lovers—solidifying her reputation as a leading producer of Trois Puits. The vines have been pesticide-free for over a decade now; even the earth is worked by a pair of horses from her husband, Alexandre Chartogne of Chartogne-Taillet.
Les Bulles Rosé is a Rosé de Saignée, with fruit coming from a single lieu-dit, Les Bas Moutions, in the village of Rilly-la-Montagne. The wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts in the cellar, where they spend time in large oak barrels before bottling and age on lees for three to six years. They see little dosage and a solera is used to age the reserve wines.
Les Bulles Rosé is a tiny production, with Périne’s fastidious quality-driven approach restricting yields, all in favour of flavour.
