This producer's vines are in the Sézanne region, south of Epernay. With a high proportion of Pinot Meunier in the vineyard, it has produced a ripe, oak fermented wine that has obtained its color from the grape skins (rather than the usual Champagne practice of adding red wine). It is a dark colored rosé, one that is dry, with crisp red currant fruits and plenty of acidity. Drink now.
