All fruit for this is sourced from Premier and Grand Cru sites along the Côte des Blancs.
On the nose, very flattering with notes of candied red fruit, blackberries and blackcurrant. We like the expressive Pinot noir, quite unusual in the Frerejean Frères range, which shows its density and minerality then gives away the spot-light to an assertive and silky Chardonnay. Its toasty aromas mixed perfectly with the red fruits of the Pinot Noir. It is a round, fruity wine, a signature of the rosés of the Côte des Blancs.
