Product Description

Réserve Rosé is true to the tradition of style at the House of Philipponnat where taste takes precedence over colour, combining intensity, freshness, and elegance.

DETAILS
Region: Wine
Volume: 750ml

COLOUR
Light pink, slightly salmony color that can become coppery over time. Delicate and creamy bubbles.

NOSE
Berrylike with nuances of cherry and wild strawberry. With time, some hints of mandarin and pink grapefruit rind will develop.

PALATE
Fine clean attack. Full and long mouth, prolonged by a good acidity and a light astringency that brings out the fruit.

TECHNICAL NOTES
VINIFICATION
Traditional. Malolactic fermentation is systematically sought after, except for a fraction of wines which are fermented in wooden casks. The red Pinot Noir is made from 'free-run' juice, macerated for 12 to 14 days and used in light proportions (7 to 8 %) in order to obtain a delicately colored rosé, but one with character and distinctive taste. The dosage is kept small (9 grams/litre) in order to preserve a harmonious balance of dryness, freshness and fruitiness.

AGEING
Around 3 years on the yeast, much longer than the 15 months legal minimum. All wines are given three months between disgorgement and shipping. Each bottle bears its disgorgement date on its back label.

FOOD PAIRING
An ideal match for smoked fish, smoked meats (ham, bacon…), pâtés and pink meats (veal, lamb). With desserts, one should avoid very sweet recipes, favoring simple red berries, served either alone or in soups. It is also lovely as an aperitif or on its own.
