Story

Terroir
Our "Cuvée La Chevalerie" rosé cuvée is made from grapes grown on selected plots to the south of Saumur. The clay-limestone terroir promotes perfect ripening and ageing in our tufa chalk cellars gives this cuvée its superb freshness, fruit, and character.
Vinification
Hand picking, gentle pressing, and cool fermentation (18°C) ensure that all the aromas are preserved. Second fermentation in bottle of a selection of the best wines, according to the Méthode Traditionnelle.
Ageing
The bottles are stored horizontally on wooden laths in our tufa cellars for 12 months before disgorging, to develop an incomparably fine bead.

Tasting notes
Lovely pink colour with brilliant highlights. Fine, persistent bead. Freshness and finesse: fine, lively bouquet with fresh, red-berry fruit aromas (wild strawberries and cherries). Lively initial impression on the palate and good aromatic intensity. Well-balanced on the palate, following through with a fresh, wonderfully subtle aftertaste.
Food and wine pairings
Enjoy chilled (8-10°C) as an aperitif, with grilled sardines or a raspberry tartlet.
