Alfred Gratien Cuvée Paradis Rosé
A vintage champagne consisting of a blend of 63% Chardonnay and 37% Pinot Noir. Only the Grands Crus from among the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are used while making this exceptional wine.
Traditional vinification and maturation occurs in small 228-liter oak casks, with self-imposed limits on production levels. To ensure that it maintains its original character, Alfred Gratien makes a conscious decision not to use malolactic fermentation in the production of its champagne. The aroma of the grapes and the land from which they came are thus preserved, and the wine retains its freshness, even as it ages.
Aging occurs in bottle for six to seven years.
Salmon-pink in color.
There are complex notes of almond, red and black berries.
Refined bubbles with tingling flavors lead to a generous and lingering finish.
This rosé pairs nicely with shellfish, salmon fillet, beef carpaccio, fruit salads and tarts.
