Rosé de Saignée

Champagne Rosé de Saignée is made with a rapid process of maceration that lasts a few hours (5-6 to 48 max) and is called "the Saignée". "Saignée" literally means bleeding, but in wine jargon means extraction of color through contact with the skins, a bit 'as if the skins bled by coloring the must. Before pressing black grapes (Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) previously shelled ,are left to marinate in order to give the desired color to the must. Champagne Rosé de Saignée is exceptional, fruity, full-bodied and fragrant and requires more processing and time which determines its great rarity.
