The current champagne contains has been aged for over 18 months in the cellars at Legros. Blend is 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay.
It has a dosage of 12g/l. This is a good example of a Rosé made by adding some red wine, made in the Champagne region to the champagne to achieve the Rosé colour. Most often the red wine used to colour Rosé Champagne comes from the village of Bouzy (pronounced Boozy!) The red wine for this champagne was made with grapes from one sole plot of vines that date back to 1969 on the Legros estate.
