BACKGROUND

In 1834 the Boizel House was established in Épernay, the heart of Champagne, by a family passionate about the wines of its region. Intimate knowledge of the Champagne region, passed on through the generations, and access to grapes from the finest cru sites, are the essential elements behind the Boizels’ elegant portfolio.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

Working only with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir sourced from Champagne’s most coveted Grands and Premiers Crus blended with the best crus of Pinot Meunier, Boizel’s intimate knowledge of each village and hillside coupled with longstanding grower relationships allows them the ability to select the finest quality grapes for their Champagnes. All wines are aged “sur lie” in Boizel’s historic chalk cellars beneath the Avenue de Champagne for a minimum of 3 years, climbing to 15 years and above for the best vintages.

WINEMAKING

The Rosé is dominated by Pinot Noir, with some Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. During blending, the addition of a small portion of Pinot Noir from Champagne's best terroirs for red wines - Cumières and Les Riceys - gives the Rosé Brut its beautiful color and subtle aromas of red fruits. Grapes are hand-picked and placed in small baskets. 8% of Pinot Noir vinified as red wine.

AGING

Post second fermentation, the wine is aged for three years on its lees, in bottle. 20% of reserve wines are used.

TASTING NOTES

The fine and subtle bouquet reveals fruity and delicate notes of raspberries and wild strawberries. On the palate, it is velvety and deliciously fresh, as well as generous and well structured. The refined fruity aromas are intense and blend harmoniously with citrus notes, smooth spices and an elegant subtle minerality.
