Saignée Rosé Trio


Bottles individually purchased: £204

Saignée Rosé is a growing trend in the production of Champagne Rosé. Rather than simply adding red wine into the blend to bring colour and depth, to create a Rosé de Saignée a winemaker must leave the pressed juice in contact with the skins of one of the dark grape varieties.

A vigneron can macerate the wine in this fashion for anything from a few hours right through to a whole week, depending on the style of Champagne they want to achieve. No matter what the outcome though, one thing that is for certain is the richness, body and vinosity this technique brings. 

Coming in at less than £60 per bottle (£25 cheaper than buying each bottle individually), this trio not offers not only great savings but also a fantastic introduction to a bold and beautiful style of Champagne.

Bertrand Delespierre Saignée de Terres Amoureuses

Blood red with a fabulously juicy front end. Apples, loganberry and spice on the palate. Amazing balance for such a rich wine with this brilliant salinity on the finish. A proper explosion of a wine. It will work fabulously with cured meats.

Perrine Fresne 'Les Noues' Rosé de Saignée

The second cuvée and first rosé from this new and talented winemaker based in the Petite Montagne de Reims. Produced using old vine Meunier from a single vineyard with 12 hours of skin maceration, and vinified in oak. The colour is a beautiful bruised cherry red. It's so fascinating and inviting with cherry, green apple and loads of violets and plum. The palate is playful, suggestive and delicious – both light and fun yet complex and layered too.

Remi Leroy Saignee les Crots

We're massive fans of Remi's wines and this incredible rosé sums up just how good a winemaker he is. Coming from the very south of the region this pure Pinot is big in all respects. The nose is powerfully vinous – Burgundian almost! The first sip is supremely delicate, but then a wave of balanced fruit, complex textures and a perfectly delivered little bundle of fruit all arrive on a bed of salt. This is the kind of wine that demands a second and third look, over a number of days and ideally with some food.
