Rosé de Saignée in magnums !
The season started with a rather cold and rainy weather. Vineyards are now facing a heat wave. So far, everything is fine, vineyards are drawing water from the chalky soils, an unsurpassed advantage of our precious Côte des Blancs.
Sun is good even if too much heat might block maturation, if not burn some bunches. We are trying to adapt gesture to those evolutions, we are keeping more leaves on the side exposed to sunlight and we are trimming higher for more shade.
During the heat wave, we’re in the cellar : bottling the 2018 vintage is in full swing.
Big news this year : we now have some Rosé de Saignée magnums in our cellar.
Today 3 out of our 6 cuvées are available in magnum, another 2 or 3 years of patience and all our cuvées will be available in magnums !
