Mathieu-Gandon Cuvée Rosé de Saignee
This Rosé is very unique. It is 100% Pinot Meunier, produced in the saignée method, finished with very little sugar and no malolatic fermentation. Despite all these efforts, it still tastes very fresh and fruity. It has an extreme red/pink coloring that is really beautiful and certainly festive. It showcases the Pinot Meunier grape in its purest form. Intense grenadine notes followed by candied cherries, macerated raspberries, black currant jam, and a hint of peony. Firm with intense structure, and a long finish with slight tannins, and a refreshing bitterness. A strong Champagne, able to hold up to red meats and fatty cheeses.
