tange-gerard Rosé de Saignée
Pretty in pink: Please meet the Tange-Gerard take on 100% Pinot Noir. The Rosé de Saignée is as close as it gets to red wine with bubbles. But it’s about appearance as well.
As you pour the champagne, a handsome circle of strong white bubbles form along the rim of the glass on top of the delicate pink colour of the champagne itself. As you smell, the bubbles are little workers that pass on the powerful nose of different fruits and spices. As you taste, the flavours reappear in your mouth and are joined by even more. All hail to the Pinot Noir as it expresses itself when it originates from what is usually Chardonnay soils.
This aromatic power is due to the maceration of the grapes which also allows the otherwise clear must to redden through skin contact. However, it is powerful aromas, not looks, that make the Rosé de Saignée a great match for many different dishes from main courses to desserts.
