THE VINTAGE YEAR
THE SENSES
The 2008 season began with a mild winter compounded by
a fresh, dry autumn. A long rainy period then stretched out
until June. Flowering took place mid-June for the three main
champagne varietals. Good weather arrived just before the
start of harvesting, speeding up ripening in the grapes
without comprising the high acidity levels, which are a good
indication of elegance and ageing potential. Exceptional
freshness in the chardonnay and rare elegance in the pinot
are the sure signs of an outstanding vintage.
- Attractive pale pink and orange-tinged in appearance, with a
fine, persistent bead in the glass.
- Red fruit aromas dominate on the nose, offering predominantly strawberry notes and fresh butter. Together the
bouquet reveals great freshness and exceptional minerality.
Toasted notes delicately break away on the finish.
- Initially fresh and elegant on the palate, opening up to reveal
complex flavours in the spectrum of red fruits.
THE ART OF BLENDING
The Rosé Millésimé 2008 is crafted by adding pinot noir red

Cru wines, pinot noir from the Montagne de Reims makes
