Drappier Grande Sendrée Rosé 2005

Cuvee: Prestige Cuvée, Rosé
Vintage: 2005
The rosé de saignée version of the Grande Sendrée Cuvée that takes its name from a parcel of land covered by cinders after the fire which ravaged Urville in 1838. A spelling error having slipped through in a new version of the land register, it is with an “s” that this cuvée is designated today. A reproduction of an 18th century bottle found in the Urville cellars is used and the Grande Sendrée undergoes remuage entirely by hand.

90% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay. 35% of the wines are matured in oak barrels from the Tronçais forest for 9 months. Dosage: 6 g/l.

Tasting Notes

Complex nose opening onto notes of strawberry, raspberry and violets with toasted nuances.

Round, supple, with a rather lively spinal column tightening the entity, the palate recalls red fruits; it is fresh and complex at the same time. A rich Champagne with great persistence.

Food Pairing
Ideal as an aperitif. To go with a saffron cream of mussels soup, a crayfish salad or a monkfish blancmange. Serve at 8°C.
