‘Disgorged June 2018. 2013 marks the first release of this new wine, which stems from the Larmandier’s experience exploring the aging potential of their Rosé de Saignée. Here, part of the Rosé de Saignée was fermented and raised on lees in barrel for 11 months, before it was blended with a parcel fermented and raised in Nomblot concrete. Following four years in bottle this new cuvée was disgorged in June 2018 with dosage of three grams per litre.
This is a totally different experience to the Rosé de Saignée: it’s a much more layered, fleshy and complex wine. Extremely seductive, with waves of flavour (dark fruit, grilled nuts and pink salt), this is a stunning new cuvée from Larmandier-Bernier. It has the depth to go with very powerful foods, from all kinds of game (pigeon, venison, etc), strong fish dishes and even red meat.’ – Importer’s note
