THE VINEYARD

The vineyards: A unique, prestigious still wine from the Champagne region, Rosé des Riceys is made from fine Pinot Noir grapes, ripened on the hillsides with the best exposures (delineated by the 350-hectare Rosé des Riceys appellation area).

HARVEST / SORTING

Harvesting by hand enables us to select the finest bunches of grapes for the production of our wines.

VATTING /

CRUSHING

The grapes are placed in vats in whole bunches and then undergo a traditional light foot treading.

FERMENTATION /

MACERATION

Once the bunches are in the vat, the winemaker will use his skill and know-how to determine the duration of the vatting period, which will be between 3 and 6 days.

PRESSING

The grapes are then carefully pressed to extract the juice.

AGEING

The wines are aged in vats or barrels until it is the optimal time to bottle them.

TASTING

The winemaker regularly tastes the must (fermenting juice) in order to capture that unpredictable magic moment when the famous and unique Rosé des Riceys taste emerges (it can disappear again within an hour!).

DEVATTING

At this precise moment, the winemaker will end the maceration by emptying the vat.

APPROVAL

All the Rosé des Riceys wines are then tasted by a panel of professionals to qualify for the right to use the appellation.

TASTING

Appearance - Crystal clear with an intense vermilion color.

 

Nose - A complex and rich fragrance, hard to define. The bouquet includes ripe cherries and black and red berries. The famous «Riceys taste» has a touch of vanilla-almond and grenadine, set off by a hint of bergamot.

Palate - The great vintages are round, broad and full-bodied. The richness of the texture and the density of the structure make them more akin to red wines than classic rosés. Other vintages tend to have an easy-drinking character.
