Geoffroy makes a flamboyant syle of Rose packed with ripe red fruit and forest berries. A truly hedonistic style.

Rosé Champagne can be made by two methods: the most common is known as 'addition' whereby the clear white wine is coloured with the addition of red wine. The other method is known as 'saigné'. This is made with, usually, only black grapes with the colour coming from a gentle maceration in the press. This makes a slightly different style of wine. The colour is different, for a start, but also the palate is more generously flavoured. This 2nd method is how this wine is made - a style made famous by Laurent Perrier for their rosé. 

There is not neccessarily a quality difference between the two methods, it is more of a 'style' thing. What we like about this method is that is uses grapes that are specifically grown to make rosé.

At Noble Grape we source our Champagnes like any of our wines - we seek out quality, value, and authenticity of style. We favour Growers Champagnes, but we are not strict about that. We do stock a few of the big names, but those that are family owned and fit our ethos of quality over branding and lifestyle.

The highlights from our range include Pierre Gimonnet which is a grower based in Cuis in the Cotes de Blancs, where Chardonnay is king. Gimonnet makes a style of wine that is as close to 'dry' as possible for a Brut, with elegance and purity. René Geoffroy is another grower we favour whose vineyards in Cumieres tend to prefer Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

Elsewhere, we work with Beaumont de Crayeres, a leading co-operative, and Billecart Salmon whose wines we admire very much for their raciness and body.
