The bubbles, either discreet or sparkling, go so well with the infinite scintillations that excite our palates and our spirits, from choreographies and burlesque aspersions of Dita to the never-ending parties of Rich Kids, since the life of gods consists not only of living on a diet of champagne, but also of swimming in it, in cool pools. Which is, we must admit, the pure truth.
Blend: 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay. It is a rosé d’assemblage (blended rosé) that contains around 5% red wine from Champagne. Between 20 and 40% of reserve wines are used in order to ensure consistency.
Wine & Food Pairing: This is a very engaging Champagne to be served with an assortment of wild berries and a light Sabayon or a fresh fruit soup. Also lovely with quail, game with cranberries or even a foie gras.
The Forget-Brimont Vineyards reach from Mailly-Champagne to Verzenay for the Grand Cru and from Ludes to Taissy for the Premier Cru. Pinot noir, Meunier and Chardonnay: integrated viticulture is practiced.
No insecticides, pheromones against grape caterpillars, fertilizers and organic amendments. Harvesting is carried out manually, with direct pressing of whole crop; the alcoholic fermentation occurs at 17° and the malolactic fermentation in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks. As an illustration of this optimal research in quality, only the cuvees are used for the elaboration of the different types of Champagne, since the crops are not reintegrated. It is aged a minimum of thirty months, in crayères. After the wine dosage, the bottles are left to rest for two months prior to dispatch.
