Champagne Drappier Grande Sendrée Rosé 2010

The Champagne Drappier Grande Sendrée Vintage Rosé takes its name from a parcel of land covered in cinders (cendrée) after the fire which ravaged Urville in 1838. A spelling error having slipped into a new version of the land register, today Sendrée is written with “s”, not “c”. On very light soils made up of “crayot”, the Pinot Noir brings its power and vinosity in a very subtle manner. A splash of Chardonnay gives great elegance to the whole. The Grande Sendrée Vintage Rosé  is made by means of the saignée method. During the vinification process only the juices from first pressing - the cuvées - are used, mechanical low-pressure presses and the use of gravity to avoid pumping, thus avoiding oxidisation is implemented. There is the minimal use of sulphur, no filtering and after bottling, the cuvée is aged for more than 6 years sur lattes (on laths). A complex nose opening onto notes of strawberry, raspberry and violets with toasted nuances. The palate is round, fresh and complex with prominent red fruit flavours.
