    Raphaël made this exceptional quality rosé from old vines in the village of Ormes. It comes entirely from the 2013 vintage, and its delicate colour comes from the addition of 5% still Coteaux Champenois pinot noir. It was then aged under cork for 2.5 years and disgorged in March last year with a dosage of 3g/l. It is fragrant and floral with succulent aromas of strawberry, raspberry and pomegranate, similar incisive flavours with a fresh, vital cut and saline minerality. For drinking now to 2020.
