Larmandier-Bernier : Rosé de Saignée Extra Brut Premier Cru

An exceptional rosé champagne by Larmandier-Bernier

The producer

Located on the Côte des Blancs terroir, the Larmandier-Bernier Champagne House has been cultivating vines for over 8 generations. Since 1988, Pierre Larmandier has been at the head of the 16-hectare family estate with the ambition of producing exceptional vintages that authentically express the purity of the Champagne terroirs.

The vines are 33 years old on average and have been cultivated for more than 20 years using biodynamic practices and with the utmost respect for the terroir. No chemical products, ploughing, indigenous yeasts, long ageing on lees in barrels and tuns, these are the determining choices that give Larmandier-Bernier wines a rare and unique minerality and expression of the terroir.

The vineyard

Rosé de Saignée Extra Brut Premier Cru by Larmandier-Bernier is made from old vines harvested in 2009.

The wine

While many rosé champagnes in the appellation are made by blending white wine with a smaller quantity of red wine from the Champagne region, Larmandier-Bernier's Rosé de Saignée Extra Brut Premier Cru is obtained by macerating Pinot Noir grapes that were harvested at full maturity.

Vinification and ageing

Sorted and partially destemmed, the grapes are macerated for 2 to 3 days. Alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts is carried out in vats. Malolactic fermentation is followed by ageing on lees for approximately one year. After at least two years of bottle ageing in the estate's cellars, the wine is disgorged six months before being released. The dosage for this cuvée is 3 g/litre.

The blend

Rosé de Saignée Extra Brut Premier Cru is made exclusively from Pinot Noir.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The NV Rosé de Saignée Premier Cru Extra Brut (LR151217) is predominantly based on Pinot Noir and a bit of Pinot Gris, all cultivated in Vertus, which is a former Pinot Noir village anyway. The recent issue of this salmon colored wine is entirely based on the 2015 vintage whose grapes were macerated for two to four hours, fermented in large oak and aged in concrete eggs for ten months before the bottling in late June. The wine shows a very delicate, fresh, precise and vinous bouquet of red fruits along with floral aromas. Perfectly round and fruity but also floral on the palate, with licorice flavors, this is an intense yet pure and elegant rosé with a full body and taste at 12.5% alcohol. The family recommends pairing this wine with raw tuna or salmon. Disgorged in December 2017. Tasted in April 2018.
