Rosé NV

$94.95

- Tiny biodynamic & organic producer producing rich flinty style of champagne

- An all Meunier macerated style of Rosé 

- Vibrant fruit and pairs well with a wide range of food, especially soft cheese like Brie des Maud, Chaource of washed rind cheese.

This is a 100 Pinot Meunier coming from a small pocket the southernmost tip of the Côte des Blancs - Talus St. Prix. Made by the talented team at Jeaunaux-Robin.


According to the label, the disgorgement date is on the base of the bottle.

The colour on this wine is incredible. That scorched, sunset pink-orange.

The nose is heaven. Rhubarb compote, wild raspberry, herbal-floral decadence with musk and rose petals.

On the palette the first few mouthfuls have that savoury sensation we love. It then opens up into a medley of berries and blueberry-like acidity. Love the plushness of the body, some light tannins playing its part but this is all fruit and freshness.

If you enjoy Rosé champagne, you will love this.

What a find! This tiny family domain was founded in 1964 by Michel & Marie-Claude Jeaunaux and as of 1999 has been run by husband and wife Cyril & Clémence Jeaunaux-Robin. The estate is only 5.7 ha, with vineyards beginning at the end of the family garden. With the vineyards so close to the family home, it’s no surprise that they’ve been certified biodynamic since 2010 and organic for far longer. 

Jeaunaux-Robin produce only about 40,000 bottles in their tiny cellar. There are two basket presses in the garage and the grape must flows by gravity into settling tanks under the back door and into the winery beneath the house. Cyril uses old oak barrels to vinify around a quarter of the wines, with malolactic fermentation, with the rest in stainless steel, also with malo. 

Jeaunaux-Robin is situated in the village of Talus Saint-Prix in La Vallée du Petit Morin, which is named after ‘Le Petit Morin’ river which shoots off the Marne river, at the very southern tip of the Côte des Blancs. The village has only 39 ha of vineyards planted on south facing slopes an La Vallée du Petit Morin is known for its flint-rich, silex soil which imparts unmistakable texture and minerality to the wines. The average vine age on the family’s property is 40 years, which is ancient by Champagne standards and only increases the depth and richness of the wines. 

 

Paired with slow cooked Lamb stew, steamed rice and herbs. It picked up the sweetness of the tomatoes and carrots, beautifully.
