What to expect


Dusty pink in colour with low dosage (extra brut) combined with mineral-driven Chardonnay from the Grand Cru village of Chouilly (shou-yi) which makes up the 88% of the blend with the remainder of the Pinot noir being sourced from plots in a Premier Cru region called Bisseuil (say it with me 'Bis-soy').

When White cherries are in season in champagne, they are quite simply as good as any cherry except, lighter and fresher which highlights this wine. Add to this fleshy white peach with pepper spice and the nose comes alive.

The palate is creamy, savoury and filled mineral expression and light, smoky tones. Overall there is a charm to this wine that integrates the finesse of the fruit, subtle use of oak, low dosage with underlying complexity from reserve wines. This is understated, well-crafted Rosé champagne. Try this if you prefer fresh, chardonnay-driven champagne styles.

About the House

About the House


Food suggestion

Led by supremely talented and very passionate brother and sister duo Antoine and Anne Malassagne, this vineyard is one to watch. Located in Damery this 100% family owned and operated estate consistently turns out impressive champagnes and has recently been awarded the Chairman’s Trophy at the Champagne and Sparkling Wine Awards 2017 in London. This is one of our favourite producers in Champagne and their wines speak for themselves.

Food suggestion


The low dosage and clean acidity with red fruit notes making this super classy rose suitable to partnering with duck or quail if you can find it topped with a cherry sauce. The acidity will balance the richness of the meat. Serve with a medley of crunchy vegetables.
