Rosé Premier Cru – NV

Region: France - Champagne


Often in the region of Champagne, from the hands of matrimony stems the joining not only of two people but plots of vineyard land as well. In 1997, Stéphanie Hubert and Olivier Waris were wed.

Winemaker's Notes

This blended Premier Cru Rosé wears a pink dress with almost fluorescent purple highlights. A fine and elegant nose of floral notes and aromas of red fruits, red currant and raspberry. More indulgent notes of blackberry and blackcurrant candy linger. The palate is sharp and lively with red currant and a crisp, mineral finish.
