Domaine Jean Vesselle Rosé de Saignee Brut NV
100% Pinot Noir | Alc: 12% Smooth + Dry
Bouzy, Champagne, France
An elegant Pinot Noir-based Champagne with the body and structure of a fine red wine; textured and complex. The rosé de saignée method is as follows: grapes macerate briefly for color, then the juice is “bled” off to ferment separately.
A noble Champagne with the body of a red wine, almost chewy and very complex. A peachy blush in the glass reveals delicate bubbles. Wildflowers and strawberries on the nose; wild cherries wrapped in tender, buttery pie crust. Luscious and elegant.
“The NV Brut Rosé de Saignée is phenomenally beautiful. Crushed flowers, mint, lavender, red berries and cinnamon abound in a rich, vinous Champagne endowed with magnificent depth and intensity. The flavors are deep and resonant, but it is the wine’s bold fruit and supporting minerality that I find absolutely compelling. Frankly, it’s hard to put the glass down.
I was quite taken with the Vesselle Champagnes…Vesselle is based in Bouzy, right in the center of prime Pinot Noir country, where the wines are naturally ample and generous. Rich and vinous, the Vesselle Champagnes deliver considerable intensity and personality. This might very well be the finest range I have tasted here.” 94 Pts – Antonio Galloni / Vinous
