Jean Vesselle ' Rose de Saignee ' Brut Rose Champagne 750ml

Winemaker notes: An elegant Pinot Noir-based Champagne with the body and structure of a fine red wine; textured and complex. The Rosé de Saignée method is as follows: grapes macerate briefly for color, then the juice is "bled" off to ferment separately.

Critical Acclaim: 

Wine Spectator 92 Points
A deep cranberry in color and very vinous in style, this is like red Burgundy with bubbles, offering hints of violet and graphite to the ripe black cherry and plum fruit and spice and dried thyme notes. Vibrant acidity steers this wine through to the lightly chalky finish. Enjoy this with food, perhaps duck with a fruit sauce.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Disgorged in April 2021, the latest release of Vesselle's NV Brut Rosé de Saignée is performing well, exhibiting aromas of smoky red berries, plums and orange rind, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and generous palate that's complemented by a pillowy mousse. It's an attractive gastronomic Champagne, but it's elegant enough to work well unaccompanied too. Best after 2021.

COMMENTARY: The Jean Vesselle Rosé de Saignée is generous and packed. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas and flavors of dried earth and bright red fruits. Pair it with Thai basil chicken. (Tasted: May 9, 2022, San Francisco, CA)
Wine & Spirits

The pinot noir juice for this saignée macerates with its skins for two days, developing a deep, cranberry-red color and red-currant flavors. Its juicy ripeness is restrained by the firm mineral structure, a powerful Champagne to serve with a veal terrine.
