Saignée 2018


SKU: SAIGNEE Categories: , , , GTIN: 5060056541143

The Saignée method of rosé production is rarely used for sparkling wines, it extracts colour from a period of skin contact rather than blending, and is a technique that is used to create sparkling wines with structure, body and aromatic richness.

Part of our small parcel Winemaker Collection, our own Saignée has a unique herby character of crushed rose petals, dried fennel and thyme with a wonderful tannic grip. A true gastronomic wine of elegance and substance that rewards pairing with food. Try saucisson, fried chicken, creamy pastas or soft cheeses like Vacherin.

Winemaker’s Food Pairing: Rich and fatty foods including saucisson, fried chicken and pasta with creamy sauces.
Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Blanc
Alcohol: 12%
