Thibaud was not interested in making rosé in the first place, as his preference is red wine from pinot noir. If he was going to make rosé at all, he wanted to make a natural, substantive, old-school rosé that drinks like a red wine with bubbles. His rosé Saignée de la Côte was born from one of the most unique, bold wines of the region – blurring the lines between red Coteaux Champenois and Champagne. There is nothing like it, and we love this Champagne for it.
Rosé Saignée de la Côte is a wild ride of psychedelic flavors, with an incredibly long finish designed to elevate food pairings or take you on a magic carpet ride. The color is intense ruby with orange highlights. The flavor profile is a celebration of savory red fruits, jam, strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, and touches of rose petals, violets, pepper, and cinnamon. The palate, reminiscent of a red Coteaux Champenois, is full-bodied and vinous with thrilling acidity, red fruits, cinnamon, and licorice. It is a pure expression of Côte des Bar pinot noir. A true, bold Saignée, perfect when paired with lamb, Thibaud himself prefers it with Indian food.
Vigneron Thibaud Brocard is the fifth generation of Champagne Brocard Pierre to work his family vineyards near the village of Celles-sur-Ource in the Seine river valley, known as the Barséquanais area of the Côte des Bar, the southernmost subregion of Champagne. Vineyards are entirely estate-owned and farmed organically with both northern and southern exposures. Thibaud works non-oxidatively, and he notably utilizes nitrogen in the winery to protect his tanks, which helps him keep the use of sulfur dioxide in the winery to the absolute minimum while preserving fruit and vineyard expression.
