In Perfect Harmony with Pierre Hermé

 The first time I had the opportunity to taste the Brut Rosé cuvée, and it was a long time ago now, was at the restaurant of Alain Passard. What I liked straight away was the vinous dimension of this cuvée. You can sense that behind the champagne there is a real wine there. Next it begins to unveil itself more intimately, with notes of citrus fruits and red berries which are more subtle and elegant. This cuvée showcases the mastery and knowledge of balance. It’s this subtle delicateness, born from harmony and finesse which I like in the Brut Rosé. For me, this champagne is an ideal partner to accompany the desserts that I create. I’m thinking about a lemon, strawberry and olive oil gateau, where the notes of the wine are in perfect harmony with the fruit. I also have on my menu an entirely lemon dessert which pairs perfectly with this cuvée and its citrus personality! For me, this champagne can be drunk at any point, breakfast lunch or dinner. At any time, it’s like a ray of sunlight that transcends the beauty of the moment.

A very pleasant light salmon colour, this rosé is balanced with red berries and citrus notes. It is elegant both in its appearance and on the palate with an energetic presence of notes of citrus and white flesh fruits which perfectly accompany the discreet red berry flavours. A champagne for aperitif by its very definition.
