The addition of a superb red wine from the Poirier Saint-Pierre and Montboeuf plots in Verzenay or the ones in Aÿ, worked in the same way as the vines of the legendary Côte aux Enfants plot, lends it an assertive aromatic power. It also boasts a brilliance, presence and delicate quality that are the hallmark of great blends.

To the eye: A bright rosé with subtle golden hues.
To the nose: The nobility of red berries: hints of red currant, cherry and wild strawberry;
a spicy touch, not unlike Special Cuvée.
On the palate: A subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity, with a tannic
finish due to the adjunction of red wine; bubbles as fine as velvet; flavours of wild berries.
