The beauty of our "Méthode Champenoise" (or Méthode Traditionnelle) wines is that the longer they age the more harmonious and elegant they become. This Rosé from 2011 vintage is labeled as LATE DISGORGED because it is held back for an additonal two years for a total of five years resting on the lees (aka "sur lie").

The Late Disgorged Rosé has a lovely apricot color that is the result of leaving a small portion of the Pinot Noir in contact with the skins. Most Rosés simply have red wine added, but we chose to go with this skin contact method that allows us to maintain our signature seamless and silky texture.
This gorgeous and very elegant wine conjures up a bouquet of fruit and floral notes. The wine opens with very tiny bubbles and shows aromas of peach preserves, toasted brioche, mandarin orange, lychee and the fragrance of peonies.
The longer aging creates a very round and rich palate feel. The stone fruit flavors follow through and are enhanced by a light earthiness engendered by the Pinot Noir fruit. The wine finishes with a silkiness and a very long lasting impression.
This special wine is a favorite among our devoted "bubble heads." The very limited production of 400 cases is available only at the winery and will not last long.
