||Rosè sparkling classic method brut
||33% Chardonnay, 67% Pinot Nero
||La Grande Année Rosé is an alternative expression of La Grande Année, transformed by the addition, at blending, of the unique red wine from La Côte aux Enfants. The emblematic single plot of the House, located in Aÿ, produces still red wine only when the grapes reach perfect ripeness. After vinification in small aged oak barrels and a prolonged ageing on its lees, even today every bottle of La Grande Année Rosé is riddled and disgorged by hand. This reflects all the expertise of the House, able to create a cuvée whose quality is matched only by its rarity.
||Mainly Aÿ and Verzenay for Pinot Noir; Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oiry for Chardonnay
||Fermented entirely in barrels.
||Sealed with a natural cork and cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the appellation.
