Armand de Brignac Rosé
The second cuvée launched approximately three years after the Gold bottle.
Fifteen percent of red wines form Cattier’s own vineyard in Montagne de Reims is added to the final blend. This trio blend is made from the 2009, 2010 and 2012 with 50% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier and 10% Chardonnay.
Abundance of dark fruit with notes of blackcherry and blackcurrant. While full bodied, it is fresh, pure and vibrant with some delicate red fruit profiles. The tangy acidity is keeping the wine energised and fresh. Like the Gold Brut, it feels much drier than 8.5g/l of dosage.
