This single vintage Saignée Rosé hails from a tiny Pinot Noir parcel in the Maillons vineyard. The fruit is typically macerated for 24-36 hours, depending on phenolic maturity, and aged in barrels for a year.
If you like your Rosé Champagnes rich and aromatic this one is for you. Offers characters of dark cherry, brambly fruits and spices. Will pair perfectly with pork and milder soft cheeses.
“Derived entirely from the 2015 vintage, the NV Extra Brut Rosé de Saignée Les Maillons (2015) was disgorged in March 2019 after 36 months sur lattes. A serious, gastronomic rosé, this is one of the more reserved of Collin’s 2015-base releases, unwinding in the glass with scents of raspberries, pomegranate, crushed mint, spices, toasted almonds and citrus rind. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and vinous, with a muscular core of fruit girdled by lively acids and fine-grained phenolics, concluding with a long and sapid finish. A wine that rewards reflection, this is another terrific cuvée from Collin, but it will need a year on cork to really show its cards.” 94 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate, 2019
