The Bleeding rosé is obtained after a short maceration. This method involves contacting the grape juice and the skin for 24-48 hours according to the year to obtain a clear color. This process produces a more intense color, stable and aromas of red fruits finest in comparison with the assembly Rose.
Their selections from Champagne are special. While there is plenty of wonderful bubbly created by some of the more “famous” Champagne houses, what they look for are wines made by families who both farm their own lands and make their own wine. This is called “grower Champagne” and for us, represents the real quality and magic of fine Champagne. Take a look at any bottle of Champagne they carry and you’ll notice the words “récoltant-manipulant” or the initials, “RM” on the label. A récoltant-manipulant is a winemaker who not only makes and bottles his or her own wine, but grows the grapes as well. Each of their partners gets their hands dirty in the fields, pruning and harvesting, and then again in the cellars. They’ve dedicated their lives to pulling the utmost personality from the grand cru soils of the top Champagne villages. Their passion shines brightly in each golden glass of wine and in each precise, delightful bubble. Yet when they look for Champagne to bring to you, they’re not looking for merely effervescence—they’re seeking superior wine. Their motto is simple: wine first, bubbles second.
