Wine Region: Champagne - France
Grapes: 40 % chardonnay, 30 % pinot meunier and 30 % pinot noir.
Tasting Notes: The seductive colour of this rosé reminds of peach skin and rose petal, while the cheerful effervescence is enlivened by small and swift bubbles, creating an overall impression of youth and vibrancy.
The first nose opens on very delicate fruity and milky notes. After a few seconds, the cuvée reveals strawberry, cream and a powerful minty freshness, which eventually give way to blackcurrant and blueberry. The nose is fruity and spring-like.
Starting with a supple attack, the wine then leaves an impression of silkiness, freshness and delicacy on the palate. The effervescence is creamy, with a perfectly blended dosage. The beautifully airy texture of this seamless wine is akin to tulle and lacework. It is almost like the champagne is enclosed in a bubble. Retro-olfaction highlights small tangy red fruits, with a hint of lychee, maybe.
The finish is quite long, round and fruity, and lasts for around 6 to 7 seconds. Strawberry and exotic fruit notes create a sweet invitation to indulge in another sip of this champagne.
Serve in a tall flute which will enhance the delicacy and the ethereal character of this cuvée. Perfect as an aperitif or served along with carrot soup with orange, fine cooked ham, roasted scallops, scampi, beef or fish carpaccio, fresh goat cheese or strawberries with rose jelly.
About the winery:
Domaine Tellier is situated in Moussy, near Epernay, which is located between the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs in the very heart of the Champagne region.
Most of the plots are found midway up the slopes and spread over 5 villages. Each plot reflects a micro-terroir created by its location, topography and soil structure. To make the most of this diversity, they decided to vinify all the plots separately.
A new chapter in the château’s history was begun in 2014 when the property was acquired by the Moulin and Cathiard families, who have brought with them considerable enthusiasm and experience.
Terroir: Although chalk is at the foundation of the great Champagne terroirs, they have two different types of soil in their vineyards:
On these 13 plots, Pinot Meunier predominates (59%), followed by Chardonnay (35%) and a touch of Pinot Noir (6%). This terroir, with deep soil over a chalky bedrock, creates wines with structure, power and good length.
These 4 small plots are entirely planted with Chardonnay. The shallow soils sit over chalk that often breaks through to the surface. This terroir lends the wines elegance and minerality.
