Roger Legros – Cuvee Rose

35.00

All the grapes used to make this champagne come entirely from the Legros vineyards. There are beautiful scents of red and black berries on the nose followed by flavours of blackcurrant, blackberry and wild strawberries that linger long on the palate. It’s just like a lovely summer fruit pudding! This wine can be served as an aperitif. It also compliments desserts really well- however a word of warning and apologies to the chocoholics amongst you – best avoid those which are heavy in chocolate. It is also good to drink and with some salads such as a Greek Salad with Watermelon.

Description

The Champagne House of Legros is in the village of Prouilly in the north of the Champagne region. They have been Champagne makers for 3 generations and Roger Legros is now passing his skills and experience onto his sons. 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.
