Pascal Doquet "Anthocyanes" Rosé 1er Cru Brut

This is a saignée rosé made in an innovative way. The pinot noir comes from a lieu dit in Vertus named “La Barre” and is macerated for 48 hours before pressing. It then goes into barrel for at least one year before it is blended with chardonnay from Mont Aimé and Le Mesnil before bottling. The final blend is 67% chardonnay and 33% pinot noir; 41% from 2010 and the rest from 2011. It was disgorged in January, 2015 and has 5 grams dosage with MCR. It’s not a sparkling red wine, as some saignée Champagnes have become, but it is intense in color and character; “anthocyanes” means pigment, after all. Raspberry, cinnamon spice and clove flavors are present in this rather full-bodied rosé Champagne.
