Grape Varietal: Blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier & Chardonnay
Growing Region: Reims, France
Chief Winemaker: Régis Camus

Words that have been used to describe this Rosé Champagne include: audacious, contemporary, elegant and playful. This Rosé Sauvage is definitely unlike any other rosé champagne. This rosé champagne is made through assemblage in strict accordance with the regulations of the Champagne wine region. The vibrant colour is obtained through a significantly higher proportion of Pinot Noir which was vinified into red wine, then being added to the blend before secondary fermentation.

 

Bottle aging and palate development was for a period of 24 months in the cellars to complete its magic. After resting for a period of time in the winery cellars in Reims - this Rosé was dressed, packaged and gratefully greeted by wine markets the world-over.
This Piper Heidsieck Rosé Sauvage NV classic blend is a generous, full-bodied style of Champagne. With more than just a hint of bright red fruits and elaborated with a majority of Pinot Noir wines from over 100 crus, and the Pinots Meunier coming from the Grande et Petite Montagne de Reims.
In the glass you have a flamboyant, scarlet red colour - which has become a recognisable signature of Piper. On the nose you will find rich and expressive red fruits which include - blackcurrant, blackberry, cherry and sweet wild strawberries, freshened with citrus, mandarin and blood orange.
On the palate this Rosé Champagne is vibrant, luscious and a refreshing wine which simultaneously offers black cherry, blackberry, pink grapefruit, red plums, clementines - and just a touch of pistachio. This wines structure and fruit forward nature is enhanced with subtle notes of Asian spice rounding off the lively, fresh finish. Chill gently and serve at 8-10°C.


Bottled sunshine with lively effervescence.
