What to expect


You are looking at a refined, pretty and savoury style of Rosé from this excellent producer. The fruit profile is not your usual berry profile but leaning more towards more crunchy, tart and juicy red fruits like pomegranate and redcurrant. Add to this a poised mineral structure and light spice, the result is a delight. We are seeing more and more of these styles of Rosé which is lifting the quality of the category as whole and making our champagne experience all the more pleasurable.

Technical details

40% pinot noir 35% meunier  with 25% chardonnay. Reserve wines are at around 30-35% with 20 months on lees and a judicious use of 6 g/l dosage (addition of sugar). 

Tiny quantities are made each year and even smaller allocations to Australia.

About the house

About the house


Food suggestion

On the northern of the Montagne de Reims in Ludes, Francois Huré and his brother, Pierre, run their family estate of Huré Frères, cultivating about 26 acres (10 hectares) of vines. Most of the vineyard work is organic and parcels are vinified separately to preserve their characters. Huré's champagnes combine rich texture with racy acidity, as demonstrated by the nonvintage Invitation, made mostly of pinot noir and meunier. Peter Liem - Champagne
