$102.95

- Sustainable and organic approach to the vineyard and winemaking

- Meunier driven Rosé that is deep, lush and full of expressive flavour

- Great with Asian inspired cuisine, prosciutto or a red fruits dessert.

Gorgeous coral colour, deep yet radiant. Wild raspberry, pomegranate and rosehip nose. Juicy red plum and ripe palate with excellent range of flavour and tannin integration.

Expect a little grip on the finish but after waves of red fruit and spice. This style of Rosé is exactly what we look for to provide agility for entertaining at home or restaurant scenarios. Would pair well with an array of Asian inspired cuisine, prosciutto or a red fruits dessert.

Technical details: Blend of 92% Meunier and 8% Pinot noir | White & Red perpetuelle blends 2003-2018 | Bottled April 2019 and Disgorged July 2020 | Green clay soils | Organic approach | Sustainable viticulture | Dosage 1.5 g/L

A grower since 1750, Champagne Moussé sits in the village of Cuisles, in a valley perpendicular to the Vallée de la Marne. This side valley has a unique soil in Champagne: a schist subsoil under clay. While Pinot Meunier often struggles to be taken seriously in Champagne, at Moussé, Pinot Meunier is celebrated. 80% of the vines planted are Meunier, with the balance planted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This agency is the first member of Club Trésors de Champagne to make a Spécial Club wine of 100% Pinot Meunier and the first Club member to produce a Rosé de Saignée Spécial Club. In the vineyards, Cedric Moussé adheres to a ‘lutte raisonée’ approach. He practices organic viticulture, using herbal infusions that act as ‘vitamins’ for the vines, cover crops, zero pesticides, and minimal doses of heavy metals like copper. His new winery, completed in 2012 may be deceiving; the modern facility leads us to believe this is a new operation. Solar panels power the cellar, tasting room, and 2 houses on the property, while geothermal energy moderates temperature throughout the winery. An underground spring provides enough water for irrigation on the farm. Moussé works almost exclusively in stainless steel, with the exception of a small amount of Pinot Meunier destined for his rosé. All cuvées undergo malolactic fermentation. The resulting wines seem to gush with red and dark fruits characteristic of Pinot Meunier, and a structured, saline minerality - Peter Liem

 

Would work well with Asian inspired cuisine - along the line of pork and ginger dumplings or Crispy duck pancakes. You could also try a quality prosciutto or a red fruits dessert.
